The LISP architecture and protocol [RFC6830] introduces two new numbering spaces: Endpoint Identifiers (EIDs) and Routing Locators (RLOCs). To provide flexibility for current and future applications, these values can be encoded in LISP control messages using a general syntax that includes Address Family Identifier (AFI), length, and value fields.
