Nimrod: A Scalable Routing Architecture for Large, Heterogeneous, and Dynamic Internetworks

Nimrod was a DARPA-funded scalable routing architecture designed to:

Key features of Nimrod include:

Nimrod was developed within the Nimrod Working Group of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). The working group is no longer active.
