The Locator/Identifier Separation Protocol (LISP) is designed to address the scaling issues of the global Internet routing system identified in [RFC4984] by separating the current addressing scheme into Endpoint IDentifiers (EIDs) and Routing LOCators (RLOCs). The main protocol specification [RFC6830] describes how the separation is achieved and which new network elements are introduced, and it details the packet formats for the data and control planes.

              Locator/Identifier Separation Protocol (LISP)                Network Element Deployment Considerations


   This document is a snapshot of different Locator/Identifier    Separation Protocol (LISP) deployment scenarios.  It discusses the    placement of new network elements introduced by the protocol,    representing the thinking of the LISP working group as of Summer    2013.  LISP deployment scenarios may have evolved since then.  This    memo represents one stable point in that evolution of understanding.
