This document describes the minor changes in protocol processing rules for the PIM-SM [PIMSM] protocol to support source specific multicast (SSM) routing semantics over the SSM address range [EXPRESS][SSM]. Used in combination with IGMPv3 [IGMPV3], the SSM delivery model can be supported with current protocol implementations. IGMPv3 can be used for communicating source specific (S,G) channel memberships to local routers; PIM-SM can be used for construction of SSM forwarding trees. This document describes the processing rules for PIM-SM in the SSM address range to support construction of SSM delivery trees.
