This document describes the Network Service Interface (NSI) Document Distribution Service (DDS) version 1.0; it is an Application Programing interface (AP) that supports the distribution of meta-data documents throughout an interconnected network of NSI Network Service Agents (NSA) in the Service Plane. The DDS is a REST based API that supports the dynamic distribution of data within the NSI Service Plane by providing a flooding based protocol for exchange of documents published by an NSA about itself and its Networks. By abstracting the DDS for the exchange of meta-data from the meta-data itself, a more generic service is provided which meets the requirements for distribution of NSA Description documents, NSI Topology documents, and NSI Service Definition documents. This document should be read in conjunction with GFD.213, Network Services Framework v2.0 [GFD.213].
