LISP Mapping Versioning

Wed, 03/04/2009 - 00:40 by Olivier Bonaventure • Categories:


This document describes the LISP Map-Versioning mechanism, which
provides in-packet information about EID-to-RLOC mappings used to
encapsulate LISP data packets. The proposed approach is based on
associating a version number to EID-to-RLOC mappings and transport
such a version number in the LISP specific header of LISP-
encapsulated packets. LISP Map-Versioning is particularly useful to
inform communicating xTRs about modifications of the mappings used to
encapsulate packets. The mechanism is transparent to legacy
implementations, since in the LISP-specific header and in the Map
Records, bits used for Map-Versioning can be safely ignored by xTRs
that do not support the mechanism.
