Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors present an implementation of CLNP ground-to-ground packet processing for ATN in Linux kernel version 2.6. They present the big picture of CLNP packet processing, the details of input, routing, and output processing functions, and the implementation of each function based on ISO 8473-1. The functions implemented in this work are PDU header decomposition, header format analysis, header error detection, error reporting, reassembly, source routing, congestion notification, forwarding, composition, segmentation, and transmit to device functions.
