2998    Bernet          Nov 2000        A Framework for Integrated
                                        Services Operation over
                                        Diffserv Networks

2997    Bernet          Nov 2000        Specification of the Null
                                        Service Type

The Null Service allows applications to identify themselves to network
Quality of Service (QoS) policy agents, using RSVP signaling.  However,
it does not require them to specify resource requirements. QoS policy
agents in the network respond by applying QoS policies appropriate for
the application (as determined by the network administrator).  This mode
of RSVP usage is particularly applicable to networks that combine
differentiated service (diffserv) QoS mechanisms with RSVP signaling.
In this environment, QoS policy agents may direct the signaled
application's traffic to a particular diffserv class of service.

2992    Hopps           Nov 2000        Analysis of an Equal-Cost
                                        Multi-Path Algorithm

Equal-cost multi-path (ECMP) is a routing technique for routing packets
along multiple paths of equal cost.  The forwarding engine identifies
paths by next-hop.  When forwarding a packet the router must decide
which next-hop (path) to use.  This document gives an analysis of one
method for making that decision.  The analysis includes the performance
of the algorithm and the disruption caused by changes to the set of
next-hops.  This memo provides information for the Internet community.

2991    Thaler          Nov 2000        Multipath Issues in Unicast
                                        and Multicast Next-Hop
                                        Selection

The effect of multipath routing on a forwarder is that the forwarder
potentially has several next-hops for any given destination and must use
some method to choose which next-hop should be used for a given data
packet.  This memo summarizes current practices, problems, and
solutions.  This memo provides information for the Internet community.

This document highlights the outstanding architectural issues relating
to the deployment and use of QoS mechanisms within internet networks,
noting those areas where further standards work may assist with the
deployment of QoS internets.  This document is the outcome of a
collaborative exercise on the part of the Internet Architecture Board.

                                        from TISDAG

Drawing from experiences with the TISDAG (Technical Infrastructure for
Swedish Directory Access Gateways) project, this document outlines an
approach to providing the necessary infrastructure for integrating such
widely-scattered servers into a single service, rather than attempting
to mandate a single protocol and schema set for all participating

2968    Daigle          Oct 2000        Mesh of Multiple DAG servers -
                                        Results from TISDAG

This document defines the basic principle for establishing a mesh, that
interoperating services should exchange index objects, according to the
architecture of the mesh (e.g., hierarchical, or graph-like, preferably
without loops!).  The Common Indexing Protocol (CIP) is designed to
facilitate the creation not only of query referral indexes, but also of
meshes of (loosely) affiliated referral indexes.  The purpose of such a
mesh of servers is to implement some kind of distributed sharing of
indexing and/or searching tasks across different servers.  So far, the
TISDAG (Technical Infrastructure for Swedish Directory Access Gateways)
project has focused on creating a single referral index; the obvious
next step is to integrate that into a larger set of interoperating
services.  This memo provides information for the Internet community.

                                        Directory Access Gateways

The overarching goal of this project is to develop the necessary
technical infrastructure to provide a single-access-point service for
searching for whitepages information on Swedish Internet users.  This
memo provides information for the Internet community.
