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.

3. References

[RFC1403] Varadhan, K., 'BGP OSPF Interaction', RFC 1403,
January 1993.
