Network Working Group D. Meyer Request for Comments: 3166 Sprint Category: Informational J. Scudder Cisco Systems August 2001 Request to Move RFC 1403 to Historic Status Status of this Memo This memo provides information for the Internet community. It does not specify an Internet standard of any kind. Distribution of this memo is unlimited. Copyright Notice Copyright (C) The Internet Society (2001). All Rights Reserved. Abstract RFC 1403, "BGP OSPF Interaction", describes technology which is no longer used. This document requests that RFC 1403 be moved to Historic status.

1. Details

During a review of internet standards relating to BGP, it became apparent that BGP OSPF interaction, as described in RFC 1403, is not common usage (if at all), and requires significant implementation complexity. Since this mechanism has not been in use in the public internet for many years (if ever), it is proposed to reclassify it to Historic.

2. Security Considerations

Moving RFC 1403 to Historic has no known effect on the security of the internet.
