This document defines an Open Shortest Path First (OSPF) based Layer 1
Virtual Private Network (L1VPN) auto-discovery mechanism.  This
mechanism enables provider edge (PE) devices using OSPF to dynamically
learn about the existence of each other, and attributes of configured
customer edge (CE) links and their associations with L1VPNs.  This
document builds on the L1VPN framework and requirements and provides a
L1VPN basic mode auto-discovery mechanism.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
