Multi-Protocol Labeled Switching (MPLS) labels must not be exchanged between the enclaves edge routers and any external neighbor routers.

MPLS label exchange via Label Distribution Protocol (LDP) or Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) with any external neighbor creates the risk of label spoofing that could disrupt optimum routing, or even drop packets that are encapsulated with a label that is not in the MPLS forwarding table.

Check Text ( C-67001r1_chk )
Review the DISN-facing interfaces of the enclave perimeter routers to verify that LDP or RSVP is not enabled.

If any of these interfaces are LDP or RSVP enabled, this is a finding.
Fix Text (F-72431r1_fix)
Disable LDP and RSVP on DISN-facing interfaces on all perimeter routers.
