Abstract:
The Service Location Protocol (SLP) is a proposed standard from IETF. It provides a flexible and scalable service discovery framework in IP network, and it can work with or without a directory service. This paper presents mSLP - Mesh-enhanced Service Location Protocol. mSLP proposes to use a fully meshed peering Directory Agent (DA) architecture. Peer DAs exchange service registration information, and keep the same consistent data for the shared scopes. mSLP provides a reliable directory service for an SLP system. It also greatly simplifies SLP service registration leading to a thin-client Service Agent (SA) implementation. mSLP is backward compatible with SLPv2, and incremental deployment is supported.
