This document describes an extension to the IP Flow Information
Export (IPFIX) protocol, which is used to represent and transmit data
from IP flow measurement devices for collection, storage, and
analysis, to allow the encoding of IPFIX Information Model properties
within an IPFIX Message stream.  This enables the export of extended
type information for enterprise-specific Information Elements and the
storage of such information within IPFIX Files, facilitating
interoperability and reusability among a wide variety of applications
and tools.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
