Status of this Memo

   This RFC specifies an IAB standards track protocol for the Internet
   community, and requests discussion and suggestions for improvements.
   Please refer to the current edition of the "IAB Official Protocol
   Standards" for the standardization state and status of this protocol.
   Distribution of this memo is unlimited.


   We present an architecture for inter-domain policy routing (IDPR).
   The objective of IDPR is to construct and maintain routes, between
   source and destination administrative domains, that provide user
   traffic with the requested services within the constraints stipulated
   for the domains transited.  The IDPR architecture is designed to
   accommodate an internetwork containing tens of thousands of
   administrative domains with heterogeneous service requirements and


   The following people have contributed to the IDPR architecture: Bob
   Braden, Lee Breslau, Ross Callon, Noel Chiappa, Dave Clark, Pat
   Clark, Deborah Estrin, Marianne Lepp, Mike Little, Martha Steenstrup,
   Zaw-Sing Su, Paul Tsuchiya, and Gene Tsudik.  Yakov Rekhter supplied
   many useful comments on a previous draft of this document.
