   IP Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) provide connectivity between sites
   across an IP backbone. These VPNs can be supported using BGP/MPLS and
   the connections can be created by using MPLS Traffic Engineered (TE)
   Label Switched Paths (LSPs).

   In order to support multiple MPLS-TE based BGP/MPLS IP-VPNs that are
   interconnected via the same Provider Edge (PE) routers, new RSVP
   extensions are required. This document does not define new protocol
   extensions for Internet Standardization. The document is intended to
   be informational and documents a solution for interconnecting
   multiple BGP/IP-VPNs via the same PE router.

I-D Action: draft-ietf-v6ops-ipv6-multihoming-without-ipv6nat-01.txt

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories. This draft is a work item
of the IPv6 Operations Working Group of the IETF.

	Title           : IPv6 Multihoming without Network Address Translation
	Author(s)       : Ole Troan
                          David Miles

	Date            : 2011-08-31

   Network Address and Port Translation (NAPT) works well for conserving
   global addresses and addressing multihoming requirements, because an
   IPv4 NAPT router implements three functions: source address
   selection, next-hop resolution and optionally DNS resolution.  For
   IPv6 hosts one approach could be the use of IPv6 NAT.  However, NAT
   should be avoided, if at all possible, to permit transparent end-to-
   end connectivity.  In this document, we analyze the use cases of
   multihoming.  We also describe functional requirements and possible
   solutions for multihoming without the use of NAT in IPv6 for hosts
   and small IPv6 networks that would otherwise be unable to meet
   minimum IPv6 allocation criteria.  Nevertheless, we mention that the
   possible needs for IPv6 NAT in the transition phase to the fully
   deployment of the proposed solutions.

	Date            : 2011-09-01

   This document describes the application of MPLS multi-segment
   pseudowires (MS-PWs) in a dual-technology environment comprising a
   Passive Optical Network (PON) and an MPLS Packet Switched Network
   (PSN).

   PON technology may be used in mobile backhaul networks to support the
   end segments closest to the aggregation devices.  In these cases,
   there may be a very large number of Pseudowire (PW) Terminating
   Provider Edge nodes (T-PEs).  The MPLS control plane could be used to
   provision these end segments, but support for the necessary protocols
   would complicate the management of the T-PEs and would significantly
   increase their expense.  Alternatively, static, or management plane,
   configuration could be used to configure the end segments, but the
   very large number of such segments in a PON places a very heavy
   burden on the network manager.

   This document describes how to set up the end segment of an end-to-
   end MPLS PW over a Gigabit-capable Passive Optical Network (G-PON) or
   10 Gigabit-capable Passive Optical Network (XG-PON) using the G-PON
   and XG-PON management protocol, Optical Network Termination

   This document contains recommendations on how Internet Service
   Providers can manage the effects of computers used by their
   subscribers, which have been infected with malicious bots, via
   various remediation techniques.  Internet users with infected
   computers are exposed to risks such as loss of personal data, as well
   as increased susceptibility to online fraud and/or phishing.  Such
   computers can also become an inadvertent participant in or component
   of an online crime network, spam network, and/or phishing network, as
   well as be used as a part of a distributed denial of service attack.
   Mitigating the effects of and remediating the installations of
   malicious bots will make it more difficult for botnets to operate and
   could reduce the level of online crime on the Internet in general
   and/or on a particular Internet Service Provider&#39;s network.
