                  Registry for Packet Type Allocations
                     draft-ietf-lisp-rfc8113bis-01

Abstract

   This document specifies a Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP)
   shared message type for defining future extensions and conducting
   experiments without consuming a LISP packet type codepoint for each
   extension.

   This document obsoletes RFC 8113.

   This document updates I-D.ietf-lisp-rfc6833bis.

1.  Introduction

   The Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP) base specification,
   [I-D.ietf-lisp-rfc6833bis], defines a set of primitives that are
   identified with a packet type code.  Several extensions have been
   proposed to add more LISP functionalities.  It is expected that
   additional LISP extensions will be proposed in the future.

   The "LISP Packet Types" IANA registry (see Section 5) is used to ease
   the tracking of LISP message types.

   Because of the limited type space [I-D.ietf-lisp-rfc6833bis] and the
   need to conduct experiments to assess new LISP extensions, this
   document specifies a shared LISP extension message type and describes
   a procedure for registering LISP shared extension sub-types (see
   Section 3).  Concretely, one single LISP message type code is
   dedicated to future LISP extensions; sub-types are used to uniquely
   identify a given LISP extension making use of the shared LISP
   extension message type.  These identifiers are selected by the
   author(s) of the corresponding LISP specification that introduces a
   new LISP extension message type.

2.  Requirements Language

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