Title : Analysis of the Security of the MPLS Architecture
Author(s) : M. Behringer
Filename : draft-behringer-mpls-security-00.txt
Pages : 12
Date : 26-Feb-01
This document analyses the security of the MPLS architecture, especially in comparison with other VPN technologies such as ATM and Frame Relay. The target audience is service providers and VPN users. The document consists of two main parts: First the requirements for security in VPN services are defined, second MPLS is examined with respect to these requirements.
The analysis shows that MPLS networks can be equally secured as traditional layer-2 networks such as ATM and Frame Relay.

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.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
