1.  Introduction

   This document defines the topology naming conventions that are to be

   used in reference to IEPREP phone calls.  These naming conventions

   should be used to focus the IEPREP Working Group (WG) during

   discussions and  when writing requirements, gap analysis and other

   solutions documents.

   There has been much confusion on the IEPREP list as well as within

   each meeting about the topologies IEPREP is considering.  Hopefully

   this document will give each reader and author a reference set of

   named architectures.

   This memo attempts to be agnostic with regard to IP...
