OSPF Definition:
Open Shortest Path First (OSPF), is arouting protocol used to determine thecorrect route for packets within IPnetworks. It was designed by theInternet Engineering Task Force toserve as an Interior Gateway Protocolreplacing RIP.
 
BACKGROUND
Open Shortest Path First (OSPF)
is a routingprotocol developed for Internet Protocol (IP)networks by the Interior Gateway Protocol(IGP) working group of the InternetEngineering Task Force (IETF). The workinggroup was formed in 1988 to design an IGPbased on the Shortest Path First (SPF)algorithm for use in the Internet. Similar tothe Interior Gateway Routing Protocol (IGRP),OSPF was created because in the mid-1980s,the Routing Information Protocol (RIP) wasincreasingly incapable of serving large,heterogeneous internetworks.
 
OSPF was derived from several researchefforts, including Bolt, Beranek, andNewman's (BBN's) SPF algorithm developedin 1978 for the ARPANET (a landmark packet-switching network developed in the early1970s by BBN), and Dr. Radia Perlman'sresearch on fault-tolerant broadcasting of routing information (1988).
