Flow Specification insert policies that control and channel traffic flows in networks to orchestrate traffic in SDN, direct traffic to pathways for specific processes in NFV networks, and prevent distributed denial of service attacks (DDoS) within and between networks. Flow policy can be set in devices via: 1) statically configured in policy routing, 2) reboot ephemeral configuration, and 3) protocol session ephemeral state (BGP-FS and ISIS-FS). This talk provides an overview of flow policy, describes the upcoming change to BGP Flow Specification policy being specified by IETF, and ask NANOG’s input on these changes. In order to help NANOG provide input, this talk accompanied by open source demo code that sets flow policy via static configuration, I2RS protocol, and BGP protocol session state.
