Improving the Locator/Identifier Separation Protocol

Fri, 07/15/2011 - 09:41 by Olivier Bonaventure • Categories:

The Locator/Identifier Separation Protocol (LISP) was proposed by Dino Farinacci and others to improve the scalability of the Internet architecture. However, the potential benefits of LISP can be much broader than this.

In this project, we both participate in the development of LISP and its standardisation within the IETF and we develop extensions to LISP.

Title : Scaling the Internet with LISP

Abstract : During the last years, several solutions have been proposed to better scale the Internet. The Locator Identifier Separation Protocol (LISP) proposed by Cisco is one of the solutions that has attracted most interest. In this talk, I'll present the current state of the LISP specification being discussed within the IETF and will explain the remaining issues and challenges.
