Charter for Working Group

Help facilitate the incorporation of the OSI protocol suite into the
Internet, to operate in parallel with the TCP/IP protocol suite.
Facilitate the co-existence and interoperability of the TCP/IP and OSI
protocol suites.


Date Milestone
1 Jan 1989 Review the OSI protocol mechanisms proposed for the upcoming Berkeley release 4.4. Coordinate efforts with Berkeley.
1 Jan 1989 Review short-term issues involved in adding OSI gateways to the Internet. Preferably, this should allow OSI and/or dual gateways to be present by the time that Berkeley release 4.4 comes out.
1 Jan 1989 For interoperability between OSI end systems and TCP/IP end systems, there will need to be application layer gateways. Determine if there are any outstanding issues here.
1 Jan 1989 Determine what should be used short-term for (i) intra-domain routing; and (ii) inter-domain routing.
1 Jan 1989 Review GOSIP. Open liaison with Government OSI Users Group (GOSIUG) for feedback of issues and concerns that we may discover.
