1. Introduction
1. はじめに

Multihoming is an important component of service for many Internet sites. Current IPv4 multihoming practices have been added on to the Classless Inter Domain Routing (CIDR) architecture [RFC1519], which assumes that routing table entries can be aggregated based upon a hierarchy of customers and service providers.


Multihoming is a mechanism by which sites can satisfy a number of high-level requirements. It is widely used in the IPv4 Internet. There are some practical limitations, however, including concerns as to how it would scale with future Internet growth. This document aims to document common IPv4 multihoming practices and enumerate their features for comparison with other multihoming approaches.


There are a number of different ways to route and manage traffic in and out of a multihomed site: the majority rely on the routing policy capabilities of the inter-domain routing protocol, the Border Gateway Protocol, version 4 (BGP) [RFC1771]. This document also discusses a multi-homing strategy which does not rely on the capabilities of BGP.


2. Terminology

A "site" is an entity autonomously operating a network using IP, and in particular, determining the addressing plan and routing policy for that network. This definition is intended to be equivalent to 'enterprise' as defined in [RFC1918].


A "transit provider" operates a site that directly provides connectivity to the Internet to one or more external sites. The connectivity provided extends beyond the transit provider's own site and its own direct customer networks. A transit provider's site is directly connected to the sites for which it provides transit.


A "multihomed" site is one with more than one transit provider. "Site-multihoming" is the practice of arranging a site to be multihomed.

「マルチホーム」サイトには、複数のトランジットプロバイダーとの1です。 「サイトマルチホーミングは、」マルチホームするサイトを配置する方法です。

The term "re-homing" denotes a transition of a site between two states of connectedness, due to a change in the connectivity between the site and its transit providers' sites.


A "multi-attached" site has more than one point of layer-3 interconnection to a single transit provider.


Provider-Independent (PI) addresses are globally-unique addresses which are not assigned by a transit provider, but are provided by some other organisation, usually a Regional Internet Registry (RIR).

プロバイダに依存しない(PI)のアドレスはトランジットプロバイダーによって割り当てられていないグローバルに固有のアドレスですが、いくつかの他の組織、通常はRIR(Regional Internet Registry)が提供されています。

Provider-Aggregatable (PA) addresses are globally-unique addresses assigned by a transit provider to a customer. The addresses are considered "aggregatable" because the set of routes corresponding to the PA addresses are usually covered by an aggregate route set corresponding to the address space operated by the transit provider, from which the assignment was made.

プロバイダ集約(PA)アドレスは、顧客へのトランジットプロバイダーによって割り当てられたグローバル一意のアドレスです。 PAアドレスに対応するルートのセットは、通常、割り当てが行われたトランジット・プロバイダが運営アドレス空間に対応する集約経路セットによって覆われているので、アドレスが「集約」と考えられます。

Note that the words "assign" and "allocate" have specific meanings in Regional Internet Registry (RIR) address management policies, but are used more loosely in this document.


3. IPv4 Multihoming Practices
3. IPv4のマルチホーミング・プラクティス
3.1. Multihoming with BGP
3.1. BGPでマルチホーミング

The general approach for multihoming with BGP is to announce a set of routes to two or more transit providers. This provides the rest of the Internet with multiple paths back to the multihomed sites, and each transit provider provides an additional possible path for the site's outbound traffic.


3.1.1. Addressing Considerations
3.1.1. アドレス指定の考慮事項 PI Addresses。 PIアドレス

The site uses PI addresses, and a set of routes covering those PI addresses is announced or propagated by two or more transit providers.


Using PI addresses has long been the preferred approach for IPv4 multihoming. Until the mid-1990s this was relatively easy to accomplish, as the maximum generally accepted prefix length in the global routing table was a /24, and little justification was needed to obtain a /24 PI assignment. Since then, RIR address management policies have become less liberal in this respect. Not all RIRs support the assignment of address blocks to small, multihomed end-users, and those that do support it require justification for blocks as large as a /24, which cannot be met by small sites. As a consequence, PI addresses are not available to many sites who wish to multihome.

PIアドレスを使用すると、長いのIPv4マルチホーミングのための好ましいアプローチとなっています。最大値は、一般的にグローバルルーティングテーブル内のプレフィックス長を受け入れたとして、1990年代半ばまでは、これは、達成するのは比較的簡単だった/ 24だった、と少し正当化は、/ 24 PIの割り当てを得るために必要とされました。それ以来、RIRのアドレス管理ポリシーは、この点ではあまりリベラルとなっています。必ずしもすべてのRIRは、小型、マルチホームエンドユーザー、そしてそれは、小さなサイトでは満たすことができない/ 24ほどの大きなブロックを正当化する理由を、必要とサポートしないものにアドレスブロックの割り当てをサポートしています。その結果、PIアドレスがマルチホームを希望する多くのサイトでは利用できません。

Each site that uses PI addresses introduces an additional prefix into the global routing system. If this scheme for multihoming became widespread, it would present scaling concerns.

PIアドレスを使用する各サイトには、グローバルルーティングシステムに追加のプレフィックスを紹介しています。マルチホーミングのためにこの方式が普及になった場合、それはスケーリングの問題を提示します。 PA Addresses。 PAアドレス

The site uses PA addresses assigned by a single transit provider. The set of routes covering those PA addresses (the "site route set") is announced or propagated by one or more additional transit providers. The transit provider which assigned the PA addresses (the "primary transit provider") originates a set of routes which cover the site route set. The primary transit provider often originates or propagates the site route set as well as the covering aggregates.

このサイトは、単一のトランジットプロバイダーによって割り当てられたPAアドレスを使用しています。これらのPAアドレス(「サイトルートセット」)をカバーするルートのセットが発表された1つ以上の追加のトランジットプロバイダーによって伝播されます。 PAアドレスを割り当てられたトランジット・プロバイダ(「一次通過プロバイダ」)はサイトルートセットをカバーするルートのセットを発信します。プライマリトランジット・プロバイダは、多くの場合、発信またはサイトルートセットならびに被覆凝集体を伝播します。

The use of PA addresses is applicable to sites whose addressing requirements are not sufficient to meet the requirements for PI assignments by RIRs. However, in the case where the site route set is to be announced or propagated by two or more different transit providers, common operational practice still dictates minimum /24 prefixes, which may be larger than the allocation available to small sites.

PAアドレスの使用は、そのアドレス指定の要件のRIRでPIの割り当てのための要件を満たすのに十分でないサイトに適用されます。しかし、サイトのルートセットが発表されたまたは二つ以上の異なるトランジットプロバイダーによって伝播する場合には、一般的な操作の練習はまだ小さなサイトで利用可能な配分よりも大きくすることができる最小/ 24のプレフィックスを、指示します。

There have been well-documented examples of sites filtering long-prefix routes which are covered by a transit-providers aggregate. If this practice were to become very widespread, it might limit the effectiveness of multihoming using PA addresses. However, limited filtering of this kind can be tolerated because the aggregate announcements of the primary transit provider should be sufficient to attract traffic from autonomous systems which do not accept the covered site route set. The more traffic that follows the primary transit provider's aggregate in the absence of the covered, more-specific route, the greater the reliance on that primary transit provider. In some cases, this reliance might result in an effective single point of failure.


Traffic following the primary transit provider's aggregate routes may still be able to reach the multihomed site, even in the case where the connection between the primary transit provider and the site has failed. The site route set will still be propagating through the site's other transit providers. If that route set reaches (and is accepted by) the primary transit provider, connectivity for traffic following the aggregate route will be preserved.


Sites that use PA addresses are usually obliged to renumber if they decide not to retain connectivity to the primary transit provider. While this is a common requirement for all sites using PA addresses (and not just those that are multihomed), it is one that may have more frequent impact on sites whose motivation to multihome is to facilitate changes of ISP. A multihomed site using PA addresses can still add or drop other service providers without having to renumber.

PAアドレスを使用するサイトは、通常、彼らは主のトランジットプロバイダーへの接続を保持しないと決めた場合に番号を付け直すことが義務付けられています。これはPAアドレス(およびないマルチホームされているものだけ)を使用して、すべてのサイトのための一般的な要件ですが、それがモチベーションマルチホームにするISPの変更を容易にすることであるサイトでより頻繁に影響を与える可能性があるものです。 PAアドレスを使用してマルチホームサイトはまだ付け直すことなく、他のサービスプロバイダーを追加または削除することができます。

3.1.2. AS Number Considerations
3.1.2. 番号の考慮事項AS Consistent Origin AS。一貫性の起源AS

A multihomed site may choose to announce routes to two or more transit providers from a globally-unique Autonomous System (AS) number assigned to the site. This causes the origin of the route to appear consistent when viewed from all parts of the Internet.

マルチホームサイトは、サイトに割り当てられたグローバルにユニークな自律システム(AS)番号からの二つ以上のトランジットプロバイダーへのルートを発表することもできます。これは、インターネットのすべての部分から見たときの経路の起源は一貫現れます。 Inconsistent Origin AS。一貫性のない起源AS

A multihomed site may choose to use a private-use AS number [RFC1930] to originate routes to transit providers. It is normal practice for private-use AS numbers to be stripped from AS_PATH attributes before they are allowed to propagate from transit providers towards peers. Therefore, routes observed from other parts of the Internet may appear to have inconsistent origins.


When using private-use AS numbers, collisions between the use of individual numbers by different transit providers are possible. These collisions are arguably best avoided by not using private-use AS numbers for applications which involve routing across administrative domain boundaries.


A multihomed site may request that their transit providers each originate the site's routes from the transit providers' ASes. Dynamic routing (for the purposes of withdrawing the site's route in the event that connectivity to the site is lost) is still possible, in this case, using the transit providers' internal routing systems to trigger the externally-visible announcements.

マルチホームサイトは、彼らのトランジットプロバイダーそれぞれがトランジットプロバイダーののASからサイトのルートを発信することを要求することができます。 (サイトへの接続が失われた場合には、サイトのルートを引き出す目的で)動的ルーティングは外部に見えるアナウンスをトリガするためにトランジットプロバイダーの内部ルーティング・システムを使用して、この場合には、まだ可能です。

Operational troubleshooting is facilitated by the use of a consistent origin AS. This allows import policies to be based on a route's true origin rather than on intermediate routing details, which may change (e.g., as transit providers are added and dropped by the multihomed site).


3.2. Multiple Attachments to a Single Transit Provider
3.2. シングルトランジットプロバイダーへの複数の添付ファイル

Multihoming can be achieved through multiple connections to a single transit provider. This imposes no additional load on the global routing table beyond that involved in the site being single-attached. A site that has solved its multihoming needs in this way is commonly referred to as "multi-attached".


It is not a requirement that the multi-attached site exchange routing information with its transit provider using BGP. However, in the event of failure, some mechanism for re-routing inbound and outbound traffic over remaining circuits is required. BGP is often used for this purpose.

これは、マルチ付属部位交換がBGPを使用して、トランジット・プロバイダとの間で情報をルーティングする必要はありません。しかし、障害が発生した場合、残りの回路上に再ルーティングするインバウンドおよびアウトバウンドトラフィックのためのいくつかの機構が必要です。 BGPは、多くの場合、この目的のために使用されます。

Multi-attached sites gain no advantages from using PI addresses or (where BGP is used) globally-unique AS numbers, and have no need to be able to justify address assignments of a particular minimum size. However, multi-attachment does not protect a site from the failure of the single transit provider.


3.3. NAT- or -based Multihoming
3.3. NAT-またはベースのマルチホーミング

This method uses PA addresses assigned by each transit provider to which the site is connected. The addresses are either allocated to individual hosts within the network according to [RFC2260], or the site uses Network Address Translation (NAT) to translate the various provider addresses into a single set of private-use addresses [RFC1918] within the site. The site is effectively singlehomed to more than one transit provider. None of the transit providers need to make any accommodations beyond those typically made for a non-multihomed customer.


This approach accommodates a wide range of sites, from residential Internet users to very large enterprises, requires no PI addresses or AS numbers, and imposes no additional load on the Internet's global routing system. However, it does not address several common motivations for multihoming, most notably transport-layer survivability.


4. Features of IPv4 Multihoming

The following sections describe some of the features of the approaches described in Section 3, in the context of the general goals for multihoming architectures presented in [RFC3582]. Detailed descriptions and rationale for these goals can be found in that document.


4.1. Redundancy
4.1. 冗長性

All the methods described provide redundancy, which can protect a site from some single-point failures. The degree of protection depends on the choice of transit providers and the methods used to interconnect the site to those transit providers.


4.2. Load Sharing
4.2. ロードシェアリング

All of the methods described provide some measure of load-sharing capability. Outbound traffic can be shared across ISPs using appropriate exit selection policies; inbound traffic can be distributed using appropriate export policies designed to influence the exit selection of remote sites sending traffic back towards the multihomed site.


In the case of RFC2260/NAT multihoming, distribution of inbound traffic is controlled by address selection on the host or NAT.

RFC2260 / NATマルチホーミングの場合は、着信トラフィックの分布は、ホストまたはNATでアドレスを選択することによって制御されます。

4.3. Performance
4.3. 演奏

BGP-speaking sites can employ import policies that cause exit selection to avoid paths known to be problematic. For inbound traffic, sites can often employ route export policy, which affords different treatment of traffic towards particular address ranges within their network.


It should be noted that this is not a comprehensive capability. In general, there are many traffic engineering goals which can only be loosely approximated using this approach.


In the case of RFC2260/NAT multihoming in the absence of BGP routing information, management of outbound traffic is not possible. The path taken by inbound traffic for a particular session can be controlled by source address selection on the host or NAT.

RFC2260の場合は/ NATは、BGPルーティング情報が存在しない場合にマルチホーム、アウトバウンドトラフィックの管理が不可能です。特定のセッションのためのインバウンドトラフィックによって撮影したパスは、ホストまたはNATの送信元アドレスを選択することによって制御することができます。

4.4. Policy
4.4. ポリシー

In some circumstances, it is possible to route traffic of a particular type (e.g., protocol) via particular transit providers. This can be done if the devices in the site which source or sink that traffic can be isolated to a set of addresses to which a special export policy can be applied.


An example of this capability is the grouping of budget, best-effort Internet customers into a particular range of addresses that is covered by a route which is announced preferentially over a single, low-quality transit path.


In the case of RFC2260/NAT multihoming, policies such as those described here can be accommodated by appropriate address selection on the host or NAT. More flexible implementations may be possible for sessions originated from the multihomed site by selecting an appropriate source address on a host or NAT, according to criteria such as transport-layer protocols and addresses (ports).

RFC2260 / NATマルチホーミングの場合には、そのようなここに記載されているものなどのポリシーは、ホストまたはNAT上の適切なアドレス選択によって対応することができます。セッションがホストまたはNAT上の適切なソースアドレスを選択することにより、マルチホームサイトに由来するため、より柔軟な実装は、トランスポート層プロトコル及びアドレス(ポート)などの基準によれば、可能です。

4.5. Simplicity
4.5. 単純

The current methods used as multihoming solutions are not without their complexities, but have proven to be sufficiently simple to be used. They have the advantage of familiarity due to having been deployed extensively.


4.6. Transport-Layer Survivability
4.6. トランスポート・レイヤ・存続

All BGP-based multihoming practices provide some degree of session survivability for transport-layer protocols. However, in cases where path convergence takes a long time following a re-homing event, sessions may time out.


Transport-layer sessions will not, in general, survive over a re-homing event when using RFC2260/NAT multihoming. Transport protocols which support multiple volatile endpoint addresses may be able to provide session stability; however, these transport protocols are not in wide use.

RFC2260 / NATマルチホーミングを使用する際にトランスポート層セッションは、一般的には、再ホーミングイベントを超える生存しないであろう。複数の揮発性のエンドポイントアドレスをサポートするトランスポートプロトコルは、セッションの安定性を提供することができるかもしれ。しかし、これらのトランスポートプロトコルは、広く使用されていません。

In all the methods described in this document, new transport-layer sessions are able to be created following a re-homing event.


4.7. Impact on DNS
4.7. DNSへの影響

These multihoming strategies impose no new requirements on the DNS.


4.8. Packet Filtering
4.8. パケットフィルタリング

These multihoming practices do not preclude filtering of packets with inappropriate source or destination addresses at the administrative boundary of the multihomed site.


4.9. Scalability
4.9. スケーラビリティ

Current IPv4 multihoming practices are thought to contribute to significant observed growth in the amount of state held in the global inter-provider routing system. This is a concern because of both the hardware requirements it imposes and the impact on the stability of the routing system. This issue is discussed in greater detail in [RFC3221].


Of the methods presented in this document, RFC2260/NAT multihoming and multi-attaching to a single transit provider provide no additional state to be held in the global routing system. All other strategies contribute to routing system state bloat.

この文書、RFC2260 / NATマルチホーミングと単一通過プロバイダにマルチ取り付ける際に提示される方法のグローバルルーティングシステムで開催される追加の状態を提供しません。他のすべての戦略は、ルーティングシステム状態の肥大化に貢献しています。

Globally-unique AS numbers are a finite resource. Thus, widespread multihoming that uses strategies requiring assignment of AS numbers might lead to increased resource contention.


4.10. Impact on Routers
4.10. ルータへの影響

For some of the multihoming approaches described in this document, the routers at the boundary of the multihomed site are required to participate in BGP sessions with transit provider routers. Other routers within the site generally have no special requirements beyond those in singlehomed sites.


4.11. Impact on Hosts
4.11. ホストへの影響

There are no requirements of hosts beyond those in singlehomed sites.


4.12. Interactions between Hosts and the Routing System
4.12. ホストおよびルーティングシステム間の相互作用

There are no requirements for interaction between routers and hosts beyond those in singlehomed sites.


4.13. Operations and Management
4.13. 運用と管理

There is extensive operational experience in managing IPv4-multihomed sites.


4.14. Cooperation between Transit Providers
4.14. トランジット・プロバイダー間の協力

Transit providers who are asked to announce or propagate a PA prefix covered by some other (primary) transit provider usually obtain authorisation first. However, there is no technical requirement or common contractual policy which requires this coordination to take place.


5. Security Considerations

This document discusses current IPv4 multihoming practices, but provides no analysis of the security implications of multihoming.
