Classless Inter-Domain Routing
CIDR is a new addressing scheme for the Internet which allows for more efficient allocation of IP addresses than the old Class A, B, and C address scheme.

CIDR associates network masks with IP network numbers independent of their traditional class. Routers that support CIDR recognize these networks as individual routes, even though they may represent an aggregation of several traditional subnets.
Also Known As: Classless Inter-Domain Routing, Classless Internet Domain Routing, supernetting
Examples:
CIDR shorthand notation writes an IP address and its associated network mask in the form xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/n, where 'n' is a number between 1 and 31 that is the number of '1' bits in the mask.

IP's are generally given in two forms:-
1. classfull ( public or private)
2. classless (VLSM, CIDR , subnetting nd supernetting )

classless interdomain routing is used for purpose of reducing ip wastage.
In case of CIDR we divide bigger networks into smaller networks based upon classless boundaries.
