Technical Summary This document describes extensions to OSPF to support mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs). The extension, called OSPF-OR, includes a mechanism for link-local signaling, a OSPF-MANET interface, a simple technique to reduce the size of Hello packets by only transmitting incremental state changes, and a method for optimized flooding of routing updates. Working Group Summary The OSPF WG was unable to reach concensus on a single MANET OSPF approach and agreed to go forward with the three competing approaches as experimental RFCs. Document Quality Passed idnits. The document has been updated in response to Gen-Art and Sec-Dir comments. The protocol in this document has been simulated, and there are at least two implementations (see PROTO writeup by Acee Lindem in the I.D. Tracker). Personnel Dave Ward was the original responsible AD. Ross Callon is the current responsible AD. Acee Lindem is the Document Shepherd.
