Interface to The Internet Routing System (IRS)

This list is for the discussion of an interface to the routing system (IRS) that allows applications to rapidly and dynamically install routing state into routers, and to learn sufficient information from routers to make timely, data-based decisions about what routing state to specify. Such an interface would facilitate control and diagnosis of the routing infrastructure, as well as enabling sophisticated applications to be built on top of today's routed networks. The IRS is conceived as a programmatic, streaming interface for transferring state into and out of the Internet's routing system, recognizing that the routing system and a router's OS provide useful mechanisms that applications could harness to accomplish application-level goals. A fundamental component of the IRS is a clear data model that defines the semantics of the information that can be written and read.
