The technique used to designate the location of a node or participant within a network.

Addressing refers to identifying where the participant is situated instead of who they are (i.e. name) or how to reach them (i.e. routing). Ideal addressing specifies the absolute spot of the participant in the network topology.

The key aspect is that addressing provides a way to specify the unique position of each participant in the network, enabling directed communication.
