Routing in the Internet
Routing in the Internet

After studying Internet addressing and the IP protocol, we now turn our attention to the Internet's routing protocols; their job is to determine the path taken by a datagram between source and destination. We'll see that the Internet's routing protocols embody many of the principles

Hierarchical Routing

In our study of LS and DV algorithm, we have looked at the network simply as a collection of interconnected routers. One router was indistinguishable from another in the sense that all routers executed the same routing algorithm to compute routing paths through the entire

Distance-Vector Algorithm

When a node running the DV algorithm detects a change in the link cost from itself to a neighbor (Lines 10-11), it updates its distance vector (Lines 13-14) and, if there's a change in the cost of the least-cost path, informs its neighbors (Lines 16-17) of its new distance vector, Figure

The Distance-Vector (DV) Routing Algorithm

The LS algorithm is an algorithm using global information, the distance-vector (DV) algorithm is iterative, asynchronous, and distributed. It is distributed in that each node receives some information from one or more of its directly attached neighbors, performs a calculation, and then

The Link-State (LS) Routing Algorithms

Remember that in a link-state algorithm, the network topology and all link costs are known, that is, available as input to the LS algorithm. In fact this is accomplished by having each node broadcast link-state packets to all other nodes in the network, with each link-state packet

Routing Algorithms

Up to now in this section, we've mostly looked at the network layer's forwarding function. We studied that when a packet arrives to a router, the router indexes a forwarding table and determines the link interface to which the packet is to be directed. We also studied that routing

A Brief Foray into IP Security
A Brief Foray into IP Security

"Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP)" covered IPv4 in some detail, containing the services it provides and how those services are implemented. While reading through that section, you may have noticed that there was no mention of any security services. In fact, IPv4 was

Transitioning from IPv4 to IPv6
Transitioning from IPv4 to IPv6

As we have seen the technical details of IPv6 let us look at a very practical matter: How will the public Internet, which is based on IPv4, be transitioned to IPv6? The problem is that while new IPv6-capable systems can be made backward-compatible, that is, can send, route, and

IPv6

In the early 1990s, the Internet Engineering Task Force began an effort to develop a successor to the IPv4 protocol. A prime motivation for this effort was the realization that the 32-bit IP address space was beginning to be used up, with new subnets and IP nodes being attached to

Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP)

Remember that the network layer of the Internet has three main components: the IP protocol, discussed in the previous section; the Internet routing protocols (including RIP, OSPF. and BGP), which are covered in Routing in the Internet and ICMP, which is the subject of this section.
