Technical Summary

 This document specifies Protocol Independent Multicast - Dense Mode 
 (PIM-DM).  PIM-DM is a multicast routing protocol that uses the 
 underlying unicast routing information base to flood multicast datagrams
 to all multicast routers.  Prune messages are used to prevent future 
 messages from propagating to routers with no group membership 
 information.
