Final Charter for Working Group

The RIP Working Group was formed from the RIP Version 2 Working
Group, which was originally chartered to create the RIP-2 standard.
Since several other RIP-related efforts are also occuring within
the IETF, it was decided to create a single working group to handle
them all.

The RIP Working Group is chartered to guide the following proposals
and develop the following projects through the IETF standards track:

  • ``RIP Version 2'' (RFC 1723)

  • ``RIP Version 2 MIB Extension'' (RFC 1724)

  • ``Extensions to RIP to Support Demand Circuits'' (RFC 1582)

  • ``RIP-II Cryptographic Authentication'' (Internet-Draft)

Additionally, the RIP Working Group will handle the RIPng protocol
which, in its first incarnation, will contain the minimum modifications
to RIP-2 necessary to handle IPng.


Date Milestone Associated documents
