Technical Summary This draft describes a network-based protocol that enables separation of IP addresses into two new numbering spaces: Endpoint Identifiers (EIDs) and Routing Locators (RLOCs). No changes are required to either host protocol stacks or to the "core" of the Internet infrastructure. LISP can be incrementally deployed, without a "flag day", and offers traffic engineering and multi-homing benefits even to early adopters, when there are relatively few LISP-capable sites. Working Group Summary Many of the comments received during last call were complex and difficult for the working group to understand. The working group last call was held open for an extended time to ensure sufficient discussion and sufficient effort to address those objections. The LISP protocol set has been controversial over the course of discussions in the RRG and the WG, but a significant majority of the working group participants and the chairs/ADs believe that this version adequately describes an experimental protocol, with its advantages as well as challenges. Document Quality There are several implementations of LISP in existence. Alia Atlas has done significant review and deserves special mention. Personnel Document Shepherd is Joel Halpern, and the responsible Area Director is Jari Arkko.
