Measured Performance of the Network Time Protocol in the Internet ...

By: D. L. Mills

Technical Reference Publication

Introduction: How do hosts and gateways in a large, dispersed networking community know what time it is? How accurate are their clocks? In a 1988 survey involving 5,722 hosts and gateways of the Internet system [MIL88a], 1158 provided their local time via the network. Sixty percent of the replies had errors greater than one minute, while ten percent had errors greater than 13 minutes. A few had errors as much as two years. Most host clocks are set by eyeball-and-wristwat...

Internet Time Synchronization : The Network Time Protocol

By: D. L. Mills

Technical Reference Publication

Abstract: This memo describes the Network Time Protocol (NTP) designed to distribute time information in a large, diverse internet system operating at speeds from mundane to lightwave. It uses a returnabletime architecture in which a distributed subnet of time servers operating in a self-organizing, hierarchical, master-slave configuration synchronizes local clocks within the subnet and to national time standards via wire or radio. The servers can also redistribute time ...

Security Considerations

By: John Moy

Technical Reference Publication

Authentication: All OSPF protocol exchanges are authenticated. The OSPF packet header (see Section A.2) includes an authentication type field, and 64-bits of data used by the appropriate authentication scheme (determined by the type field). The authentication type is configurable on a per-area basis. Additional authentication data is configurable on a perinterface basis. For example, if an area uses a simple password scheme for authentication, a separate password may be ...

Osi Isis Intradomain Routing Protocol

By: David Oran

Technical Reference Publication

Introduction: This Protocol is one of a set of International Standards produced to facilitate the interconnection of open systems. The set of standards covers the services and protocols required to achieve such interconnection. This Protocol is positioned with respect to other related standards by the layers defined in the ISO 7498 and by the structure defined in the ISO 8648. In particular, it is a protocol of the Network Layer. This protocol permits Intermediate System...

Compressing Tcp/Ip Headers for Low-Speed Serial Links

By: V. Jacobson

Technical Reference Publication

Introduction: As increasingly powerful computers find their way into people?s homes, there is growing interest in extending Internet connectivity to those computers. Unfortunately, this extension exposes some complex problems in link-level framing, address assignment, routing, authentication and performance. As of this writing there is active work in all these areas. This memo describes a method that has been used to improve TCP/IP performance over low speed (300 to 19,2...

By: R. Stine

Technical Reference Publication

Introduction: This catalog contains descriptions of several tools available to assist network managers in debugging and maind taining TCP/IP internets and interconnected communications resources. Entries in the catalog tell what a tool oes, how it works, and how it can be obtained. The NOCTools Working Group of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) compiled this catalog in 1989. Future editions will be produced as IETF members become aware of tools that should be in...

Intermail and Commercial Mail Relay Services

By: A. Westine

Technical Reference Publication

Introduction: The evolution of large electronic mail systems testifies to the increasing importance of electronic mail as a means of communication and coordination throughout the scientific research community. This paper is a summary of the development of, and a status report on, an experiment in protocol interoperation between mail systems of different design. USC/Information Sciences Institute (ISI) began work on this experiment in 1981 and over the years has provided ...

Use of Osi Is-Is for Routing in Tcp/Ip and Dual Environments

By: Ross W. Callon

Technical Reference Publication

Excerpt: Introduction, Overview of the Protocol: The TCP/IP protocol suite has been growing in importance as a multivendor communications architecture. With the anticipated emergence of OSI, we expect coexistence of TCP/IP and OSI to continue for an extended period of time. There is a critical need for routers to support both IP traffic and OSI traffic in parallel. There are two main methods that are available for routing protocols to support dual OSI and IP routers. One...

Guidelines for Osi Nsap Allocation in the Internet

By: Richard Colella

Technical Reference Publication

Introduction: The Internet is moving towards a multi-protocol environment that includes OSI. To support OSI in the Internet, an OSI lower layers infrastructure is required. This infrastructure comprises the connectionless network protocol (CLNP) [12] (see also RFC 994 [8]) and supporting routing protocols. Also required as part of this infrastructure are guidelines for network service access point (NSAP) address assignment. This paper provides guidelines for allocating N...

A Scheme for an Internet Encapsulation Protocol : Version 1

By: R. A. Woodburn

Technical Reference Publication

Background: For several years researchers in the Internet community have needed a means of tunneling between networks. A tunnel is essentially a Source Route that circumvents conventional routing mechanisms. Tunnels provide the means to bypass routing failures, avoid broken gateways and routing domains, or establish deterministic paths for experimentation.

Security Considerations

By: John Moy

Technical Reference Publication

Abstract: This memo documents version 2 of the OSPF protocol. OSPF is a link-state based routing protocol. It is designed to be run internal to a single Autonomous System. Each OSPF router maintains an identical database describing the Autonomous System?s topology. From this database, a routing table is calculated by constructing a shortest-path tree. OSPF recalculates routes quickly in the face of topological changes, utilizing a minimum of routing protocol traffic. OSP...

By: David L. Mills

Technical Reference Publication

Abstract: This document describes the Network Time Protocol (NTP), specifies its formal structure and summarizes information useful for its implementation. NTP provides the mechanisms to synchronize time and coordinate time distribution in a large, diverse internet operating at rates from mundane to lightwave.
