This document reports the outcome of the Routing and Addressing
Workshop that was held by the Internet Architecture Board (IAB) on
October 18-19, 2006, in Amsterdam, Netherlands.  The primary goal of
the workshop was to develop a shared understanding of the problems
that the large backbone operators are facing regarding the
scalability of today's Internet routing system.  The key workshop
findings include an analysis of the major factors that are driving
routing table growth, constraints in router technology, and the
limitations of today's Internet addressing architecture.  It is hoped
that these findings will serve as input to the IETF community and
help identify next steps towards effective solutions.

Note that this document is a report on the proceedings of the
workshop.  The views and positions documented in this report are
