Title : AS-wide Unique BGP Identifier for BGP-4
Author(s) : E. Chen, J. Yuan
Filename : draft-chen-bgp-identifier-01.txt
Pages : 4
Date : 11-Jan-02
To deal with situations where the current requirements for the BGP
Identifier are not met, this document relaxes the definition of the
BGP Identifier to be a 4-octet unsigned, non-zero integer, and
relaxes the 'uniqueness' requirement so that only AS-wide uniqueness
of the BGP Identifiers is required. These revisions to the base BGP
specification does not introduce any backward compatibility issue.

up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
