Topic: Next Generation Routing Architecture LISP (PDF - 6.57 MB)
LISP utilizes a level of indirection to separate an IP address into two namespaces, one being an endpoint identifier (EID) and the other a routing locator (RLOC). LISP provides benefits for multi-homed sites, reducing numbering, controlling ingress traffic patterns and allowing movement without end-node (hosts) IP address change. LISP is a structure that enables the routing and addressing architectures for the next-generation Internet to scale.
