	Title		: Extensions to CRLDP for MPLS Path Protection

To deliver reliable service, multi-protocol label switching (MPLS)
requires a set of procedures to enable protection of the traffic
carried on label switched paths (LSPs). Thus existing signaling
mechanisms must be extended appropriately to support such
functionality.  Recently, CR-LDP [1] has introduced extensions to LDP
to support the establishment of LSP tunnels. This draft extends CR-
LDP to support path protection [2]in MPLS. Specifically, we provide
signaling support for establishing working and backup LSPs.

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.
