    IGP – interior gateway protocol

    Short for interior gateway protocol, IGP is a generic term for a routing protocol that is used to exchange routing information among routers in an autonomous network, such as an enterprise LAN. IGPs typically support confined geographical areas. RIP and OSPF are two examples of an IGP.

    Compare with EGP.
