Abstract

   This document extends Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP) with a
   capability for bulk mapping retrieval.  It does so by defining new
   LISP messages that are meant to facilitate state recovery of mapping
   tables and improve Ingress Tunnel Routers (ITR) recovery times, in
   particular.  In addition, this document allows to request mappings
   that match destination IP prefixes, names, or AS numbers.

1.  Introduction

   Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP, [RFC6830] ) operation relies
   upon a mapping mechanism that is used by ingress/egress Tunnel
   Routers (xTR) to forward traffic over the LISP network.  This
   document extends LISP with a capability for bulk mappings retrieval.
   It does so by defining new LISP messages that are meant to facilitate
   state recovery of mapping tables and improve Ingress Tunnel Routers
   (ITR) recovery times, in particular.

   The base LISP specification does not define how a requestor may ask
   for multiple EIDs.  Indeed, the current LISP specification [RFC6830]
   states the following:

         Support for requesting multiple EIDs in a single Map-Request
         message will be specified in a future version of the protocol.

   [I-D.boucadair-lisp-multiple-records] defines a backward compatible
   extension of the LISP Map-Request message to request multiple
   records.

   This document defines a more reliable method for the retrieval of
   mapping records from one or multiple Map-Resolvers (Section 3).  It
   does so by using TCP ([RFC0793]) as a transport protocol for
   exchanges the bulk retrieval messages.  Other proposals have been
