    Locator/ID Separation Protocol Delegated Database Tree (LISP-DDT)


   This document describes the Locator/ID Separation Protocol Delegated    Database Tree (LISP-DDT), a hierarchical distributed database that    embodies the delegation of authority to provide mappings from LISP    Endpoint Identifiers (EIDs) to Routing Locators (RLOCs).  It is a    statically defined distribution of the EID namespace among a set of    LISP-speaking servers called "DDT nodes".  Each DDT node is    configured as "authoritative" for one or more EID-prefixes, along    with the set of RLOCs for Map-Servers or "child" DDT nodes to which    more-specific EID-prefixes are delegated.
