                  LISP EID Block Management Guidelines
                 draft-ietf-lisp-eid-block-mgmnt-01.txt

Abstract

   This document proposes an allocation framework for the management of
   the LISP EID address prefix (requested in [I-D.ietf-lisp-eid-block]).
   The framework described relies on hierarchical distribution of the
   address space with sub-prefixes allocated on a temporary basis to
   requesting organizations.

1.  Requirements Notation

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

2.  Introduction

   The Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP - [RFC6830]) and related
   mechanisms ([RFC6831], [RFC6832], [RFC6833], [RFC6834], [RFC6835],
   [RFC6836], [RFC6837]) separates the IP addressing space into two
   logical spaces, the End-point IDentifier (EID) space and the Routing
   LOCator (RLOC) space.  The first space is used to identify
   communication end-points, while the second is used to locate EIDs in
   the Internet routing infrastructure topology.

   The document [I-D.ietf-lisp-eid-block] requested an IPv6 address
   block reservation exclusively for the allocation and assignment of
   EID prefixes.  The rationale, intent, size, and usage of the EID
   address block are described in [I-D.ietf-lisp-eid-block].

   This document proposes a management framework for the allocation and
   assignment of EID addresses from that block based on temporary
