This document describes mechanisms for providing directory service to
TRILL (Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links) edge switches.
The directory information provided can be used in reducing
multi-destination traffic, particularly ARP / Neighbor Discovery (ND)
and unknown unicast flooding.  It can also be used to detect traffic
with forged source addresses.

This document is a product of the Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.
