In the Inter-Domain Routing Protocol (IDRP), all border routers (border intermediate systems (BISs) in ISO terminology) of a routing domain confederation (RDC) must be configured with the identity of all RDCs that overlap or enclose that RDC. This draft describes some minor modifications to IDRP specification that removes this requirement.
