United States federal Government Open System interconnection NETwork (GOSNET)


The National Bureau of Standards (NBS) will assign a sub value to any company or organizations that participates in the Government Open System Interconnection Network. This program encompasses governmental offices throughout the world.

From Chapter 5 "Names and addresses" of the book "Open Systems Networking. TCP/IP and OSI" (1993) by D.M. Piscitello and A.L. Chapin:
"The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), acting for the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), administers a Government Open Systems Interconnection Profile (GOSIP) registration authority [...].
GSA will provide, to anyone who asks, a numeric value that can be used in the administrative authority identifier field of U.S. GOSIP version 2 of Network Service Access Point (NSAP) addresses, under a delegation of authority from the ISO 6523 part of ISO's subtree that is registered as the [current OID]."
