This document analyzes the potential threats against the security of the Locator/Identifier Separation Protocol (LISP) if deployed in the Internet. This document proposes a set of recommendations to mitigate the identified security risks and keep a security level equivalent to what is observed in the Internet today (i.e., without LISP). By following the recommendations of this draft a LISP deployment can achieve a security level that is comparable to the existing Internet architecture.
