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

        Title           : Basic Specification for IP Fast-Reroute: Loop-free 
        Author(s)       : A. Atlas, A. Zinin
        Filename        : draft-ietf-rtgwg-ipfrr-spec-base-05.txt
        Pages           : 26
        Date            : 2006-3-6
This document describes the use of loop-free alternates to provide
local protection for unicast traffic in pure IP and MPLS/LDP networks
in the event of a single failure, whether link, node or shared risk
link group (SRLG).  The goal of this technology is to reduce the
micro-looping and packet loss that happens while routers converge
after a topology change due to a failure.  Rapid failure repair is
achieved through use of precalculated backup next-hops that are loop-
free and safe to use until the distributed network convergence
process completes.

NOTE:   The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
        MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
        feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
        command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
        a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
        exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
        "multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
        up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
        how to manipulate these messages.
