Abstract

A procedure is described for maintaining consistent source-independent explicit routing tables while network failures are concurrent with route creation procedures. This method, called a purge filter, is needed to make the protocol of the preceding article fail-safe. See the preceding article for a brief description of source-independent explicit routing.
