OSPF (Open Shortest Path First) is one of the most challenging routing protocols to understand-and one of the most important. In OSPF Complete Implementation, John Moy , OSPF's inventor and primary developer, walks networking professionals through a comprehensive OSPF implementation in C++, step-by-step. A perfect companion to Moy's OSPF: Anatomy of an Internet Routing Protocol (0-201-63472-4), this authoritative guide demonstrates how every part of the standard can be implemented, enabling readers to explore all of the protocol's nooks and crannies, and to discover never-before-published optimization techniques. Moy explains OSPF's functional specifications, software architecture, and key building blocks. An ideal resource for everyone interested in practical Internet routing: netadmins, protocol designers, protocol software developers, and others involved in designing, developing, or managing TCP/IP networks using OSPF.
John T. Moy is a Corporate Fellow at Sycamore Networks, Inc. He is the author of the OSPF and MOSPF protocol specifications and chairs the OSPF and MOSPF Working Groups in the Internet Engineering Task Force. Involved in the design and development of router software for nearly two decades, Moy previously worked at Ascend Communications, Proteon, and Bolt, Beranek and Newman. He holds an M.A. in mathematics from Princeton and a B.S. in mathematics from the University of Minnesota.
