                      draft-farinacci-lisp-rig-00

Abstract

   A simple tool called the LISP-DDT Referral Internet Groper or 'rig'
   can be used to query the LISP-DDT hierarchy.  This draft describes
   how the 'rig' tool works.

2.  Introduction

   LISP [LISP] specifies an architecture and mechanism for replacing the
   addresses currently used by IP with two separate name spaces:
   Endpoint IDs (EIDs), used within sites, and Routing Locators (RLOCs),
   used on the transit networks that make up the Internet
   infrastructure.  To achieve this separation, the Locator/ID
   Separation Protocol (LISP) defines protocol mechanisms for mapping
   from EIDs to RLOCs.  In addition, LISP assumes the existence of a
   database to store and propagate those mappings globally.  This
   document focuses on the LISP-DDT [LISP-DDT] mapping database system.

   The 'rig' is a manual management tool to query LISP-DDT mapping
   database hierarchy.  It can be run by all devices which implement
   LISP, including ITRs, ETRs, PITRs, PETRs, Map-Resolvers, Map-Servers,
   and LISP-DDT nodes, as well as by a host system at either a LISP-
   capable or non-LISP-capable site.

   The LISP-DDT 'rig' tool is similar to the 'lig' [LISP-LIG] tool in
   that they are both diagnostic tools to query a distributed database.
