The Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP) relies on three principles to improve the scalability properties of Internet routing: address role separation, encapsulation, and mapping. When invented, LISP was targeted at solving the Internet routing scaling problem [RFC4984]. There have now been years of implementations and experiments examining the impact and open questions of using LISP to improve inter-domain routing scalability. Experience has shown that because LISP utilizes mapping and encapsulation technologies, it can be deployed and used for purposes that go beyond routing scalability. For example, LISP provides a mean for a LISP site to precisely control its inter-domain outgoing and incoming traffic, with the possibility to apply different policies to different domains exchanging traffic with it. LISP can also be used to ease the transition from IPv4 to IPv6 as it allows the transport of IPv4 over IPv6 or IPv6 over IPv4. Furthermore, LISP also supports inter-domain multicast.

Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP) Impact
The Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP) aims to improve the Internet routing scalability properties by leveraging three principles: address role separation, encapsulation, and mapping. In this document, based on implementation work, deployment experiences, and theoretical studies, we discuss the impact that the deployment of LISP can have on both the routing infrastructure and the end user.
