It is often said that there are only problems in the design of IP Routing protocols.
- Propagation – how routes are notified to all elements on the network.
- Expiration – how to detect and notify that routes are no longer valid.
But most people quickly realise that silent third problem – recursion. How does a routing protocol detect loops and remove the router. Challenges with split horizon, loop detection, route duplication and so on are at the very heart of routing protocols.
