    An Architectural Framework of the Internet for the Real IP World
                  draft-shyam-real-ip-framework-57.txt

Abstract

   This document tries to propose an architectural framework of the
   internet in the real IP world. It describes how a three-tier mesh
   structured hierarchy can be established in a large address space
   based on fragmenting it into some regions and some sub regions inside
   each of them. It shows how to make a transition from private IP to
   real IP without making significant changes with the existing network.
   It introduces VLSM tree routing protocol. It introduces another
   protocol for host identification with provider independent address.
   With the useful works done through IPv6, it provides all necessary
   inputs based on which a specification of IP with 64 bit address space
   may be emerged.
