IS-IS is an IGP specified and standarized by ISO and incorporating
extensions to support IP. It has been deployed successfully in the
Internet for several years years. The IS-IS Working Group is chartered
to document current protocol implementation practices and
as well as to propose further extensions to be used within the scope
IS-IS and IP routing. Short term, the WG is expected to deliver a set

This working group will interact with other standards bodies that have
responsibility for standardizing IS-IS.
