The Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP [RFC6830]) and related mechanisms ([RFC6831], [RFC6832], [RFC6833], [RFC6834], [RFC6835], [RFC6836], [RFC6837]) separate the IP addressing space into two logical spaces, the Endpoint Identifier (EID) space and the Routing Locator (RLOC) space. The first space is used to identify communication endpoints, while the second is used to locate EIDs in the Internet routing infrastructure topology.

   Management Guidelines for the Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP)                     Endpoint Identifier (EID) Block


   This document proposes a framework for the management of the Locator/    ID Separation Protocol (LISP) Endpoint Identifier (EID) address    block.  The framework described relies on hierarchical distribution    of the address space, granting temporary usage of prefixes of such    space to requesting organizations.
