Identifier-locator protocols rely on a mapping system that is able to map identifiers to locators. ILA nodes that perform ILA translations need to access the mapping system via a protocol. This document specifies the ILA Mapping Protocol that is used by ILA forwarding nodes and hosts to populate and maintain a cache of ILA mappings.
