Routing Information Protocol (invariably known as RIP) is a routing protocol for the TCP/IP protocol suite. It is an IGP, and can be used either on pieces of the Internet, or on disconnected internets.

It is a destination vector routing protocol; it was mostly a clone of PUP protocol suite's Gateway Information Protocol.
