Abstract

In any computer system the requirement to both identify and locate objects is of fundamental importance. In an Open Systems Interconnection environment, where objects may be widely distributed, this requirement is even more apparent. Names, addresses and routes play an essential role in satisfying such a requirement. The concepts involved and the structure of these three entities are first described, and then their use, with particular emphasis on their use within a typical OSI environment, is investigated.
