Connection-oriented path setup is becoming one of the key features of the next-generation Internet with the Multi-Protocol Label Switched (MPLS) framework and its generalized version GMPLS addressing the automated Label Switched Path (LSP) setup. Despite the significant technological progress in various LSP implementations, the integration of robust security features for authentication and authorization for global path setup remains an open issue. However, security is becoming essential for carrier-grade operations as it directly translates to inter-carrier's service level agreements and user's satisfaction with quality of the services purchased.
