                   Identifier-locator control daemon
                        draft-herbert-idlocd-00

Abstract

   Identifier-locator protocols rely on a mapping system that is able to
   map identifiers to locators. Such a mapping system is a type of
   key/value store. This draft proposes a design and implementation for
   an Identifier-Locator control daemon (idlocd). The intent is to
   provide an open source implementation that would be a basis for
   experimentation, development, and eventual deployment of identifier-
   locator solutions at large scale.

1 Introduction

   This document proposes creation of an open source project to define
   and implement a control daemon for identifier-locator protocols. A
   goal of this is to provide a platform to facilitate development of a
   mapping system and protocols for the IDEAS effort in IETF.
