The Diameter protocol includes a capability for message redirection,
controlled by an application-independent "redirect agent".  In some
circumstances, an operator may wish to redirect messages to an
alternate domain without specifying individual hosts.  This document
specifies an application-specific mechanism by which a Diameter
server or proxy (node) can perform such a redirection when the
Straightforward-Naming Authority Pointer (S-NAPTR) is not used for
dynamic peer discovery.  A node performing this new function is
referred to as a "Realm-based Redirect Server".

This memo updates Sections 6.13 and 6.14 of RFC 6733 with respect to
the usage of the Redirect-Host-Usage and Redirect-Max-Cache-Time
Attribute-Value Pairs (AVPs).

This document is a product of the Diameter Maintenance and Extensions Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
Official Protocol Standards (STD 1) for the standardization state and
status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
