IDRP (Interdomain Routing Protocol) is an OSI exterior (interdomain) routing protocol that is used to exchange routing information between autonomous systems (ASs) of routers. The corresponding OSI interior (intradomain) routing protocol is IS-IS, which is designed to work within an autonomous system. IDRP was considered as a routing protocol for the Internet in the early 1990s when it was thought that OSI protocols would be used on the Internet. It has since fallen out of favor.
