The Internet is moving towards a multi-protocol environment that includes OSI. To support OSI, it is necessary to address network layer entities and network service users. The basic principles of OSI Network Layer addressing and Network Service Access Points (NSAPs) are defined in Addendum 2 to the OSI Network service definition. This internet draft recommends a structure for the Domain Specific Part of NSAP addresses for use in the Internet that is consistent with these principles.
