Abstract

There is a substantial amount of interest in providing guidance to private address administration authorities on preferred formats and semantics for the Domain Specific Part (DSP) of an NSAP address. In particular it is felt that use of a limited number of preferred DSP formats would allow organizations to easily use intermediate and end systems from a variety of suppliers. This technical report specifies the way in which the DSP may be constructed so as to facilitate efficient address assignment.

Status of This Memo

The following is a RFC edition of the ANSI "Guidelines for the Specification of the Structure of the Domain Specific Part (DSP) of the ISO Standard NSAP Address". It should be understood that this ANSI working document is in a draft state and subject to change.

These Guidelines are an important prerequirement to allow IP addressing within the ISO connectionless protocol (CLNS), which itself is necessary to allow the coexistance of the IP and the CLNS in the Arpanet attached gateways.

A RFC to specify a suitable IP addressing method for ISOgrams is currently worked on in Internet Task Forces and should be expected as an RFC shortly.

This RFC is for informational purposes only and it's distribution is unlimited. It does not specify a standard for the Arpa-Internet.

TITLE: GUIDELINES FOR THE SPECIFICATION OF THE STRUCTURE OF THE

DOMAIN SPECIFIC PART (DSP) OF THE ISO STANDARD NSAP ADDRESS

STATUS: X3S3.3 WORKING DRAFT

Introduction

There is a substantial amount of interest in providing guidance to private address administration authorities on preferred formats and semantics for the Domain Specific Part (DSP) of an NSAP address. In particular it is felt that use of a limited number of preferred DSP formats would allow organizations to easily use intermediate and end systems from a variety of suppliers. This technical report specifies the way in which the DSP may be constructed so as to facilitate efficient address assignment.

1. Scope and Field of Application

This Technical Report specifies a recommended syntax and interpretation for the Domain Specific Part of an NSAP address. NSAP Address Administration Authorities are urged to use this format when the equipment comprising an addressing domain is of a heterogeneous nature.
