Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP) operation relies upon a mapping mechanism that is used by ingress/egress Tunnel Routers (xTR) to forward traffic over the LISP network. The ability of dynamically discovering the Map-Resolver and Map-Server entities that provide such mapping services is meant to facilitate global LISP operation (automatic discovery of Map-Resolvers and Map-Servers). This document specifies a BGP Extended Communities attribute that can be used to dynamically discover LISP Mapping Systems of different domains.
