Several modern day routing protocols suffer from convergence problems. This talk will explain the algebraic approach to routing protocol design that allows one to reason about the behaviour of whole families of routing protocols at the same time. The talk will then discuss the algebraic conditions sufficient to guarantee desirable convergence guarantees for the protocol. In particular we take the “strictly increasing” condition of Sobrinho and show that several new results for distance and path-vector protocols including a weaker asynchronous model and a guarantee of a unique final state. Finally, the talk will discuss how the results have been fully formalised in the Agda theorem prover and the resulting library is publicly available for others to use and extend.
