Routers that form the Internet routing infrastructure maintain state at various layers of detail and function. For example, a typical router maintains a Routing Information Base (RIB) and implements routing protocols such as OSPF, IS-IS, and BGP to exchange reachability information, topology information, protocol state, and other information about the state of the network with other routers.

         An Architecture for the Interface to the Routing System


   This document describes the IETF architecture for a standard,    programmatic interface for state transfer in and out of the Internet    routing system.  It describes the high-level architecture, the    building blocks of this high-level architecture, and their    interfaces, with particular focus on those to be standardized as part    of the Interface to the Routing System (I2RS).
