What is OSPF?

OSPF stands for Open Shortest Path First. It is a link state routing Protocol. It uses shortened path first algorithm in order to build and calculate the shortest path to all known destinations. It is an Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP) that is used mainly in larger TCP/IP internetworks and within autonomous systems of the Internet (Network: source to destination using its own shortest path).
