                    LISP Site External Connectivity
             draft-jain-lisp-site-external-connectivity-00

Abstract

   This draft defines how to register/retrieve default-pETR mapping
   information in LISP when the destination is not registered/known to
   the local site and its mapping system (e.g. the destination is an
   internet or external site destination).

   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in RFC 2119 [RFC2119].

1.  Introduction

   The LISP architecture and protocol [I-D.ietf-lisp-rfc6833bis]
   introduces two types of replies to a map-request sent by an ITR:

   - when the EID is known or registered to the mapping system, a
   regular map-reply with mapping information is sent, or

   - when the EID is unknown or known but not registered, a negative-
   map-reply (NMR) is sent.

   Currently the NMR does not convey pETR RLOC-set information to
   specify where the ITR should send the packet.

   This document describes how to use the LISP messages to register and
   provide pETR RLOC-set information for destinations which are EIDs not
   registered with the Mapping System, or simply are "not known" to be
   an existing EID.  These destinations could be the destinations which
   are outside of the LISP site belonging to non-LISP domains, hence are
   not registered with the LISP Mapping System.

   The reachability of these destinations can be provided either by
   configuring pETR information directly into the Mapping System, or by
   the registration done by certain pETRs.  The pETR registration is
   specifically useful when the traffic to these external destinations
   needs to be sent encapsulated to a preferred pETR/gateway chosen
   dynamically.  This mechanism also helps to achieve faster
   convergence.

   This document also specifies the structure of the map-reply
   containing pETR RLOC-set information.

2.  Definition of Terms

   Same as defined in [I-D.ietf-lisp-rfc6833bis].

3.  pETR Registration/Notification

   pETRs having external or internet connectivity MAY register the pETR
   with the mapping system.  The pETR Map-Register/Map-Notify procedures
