Title: Models For Address Distribution and Session Management in Broadcast Networks with Dynamic Addresses
Authors: O. Sharon and A. Segall
Abstract: The method of dynamically assigned addresses is an alternative to the traditional method of preassigned addresses. The dynamic approach requires protocols for assigning/unassigning addresses, along with some kind of mechanism which distributes infonnation about assigned/unassigned addresses to network stations and manages sessions between stations. In the present wode we investigate the second issue in relation to broadcast netwodes, present three possible models for address distribution, define the properties required for correct operation and prove that our proposed protocols posses these properties.
