1498 Saltzer Aug 93 On the Naming and Binding of Network Destinations

This brief paper offers a perspective on the subject of names of destinations in data communication networks. It suggests two ideas: First, it is helpful to distinguish among four different kinds of objects that may be named as the destination of a packet in a network.
