"The Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP)" [RFC6830] specifies an architecture and mechanism for replacing the semantics of an address currently used by IP with two separate namespaces: Endpoint Identifiers (EIDs), used within sites; and Routing Locators (RLOCs), used on the transit networks that make up the Internet infrastructure. To achieve this separation, LISP defines protocol mechanisms for mapping from EIDs to RLOCs. In addition, LISP assumes the existence of a database to store and propagate those mappings globally. This document focuses on the LISP Delegated Database Tree (LISP-DDT) [RFC8111] mapping database system.

    Locator/ID Separation Protocol Delegated Database Tree (LISP-DDT)                      Referral Internet Groper (RIG)


   A simple tool called the Locator/ID Separation Protocol Delegated    Database Tree (LISP-DDT) Referral Internet Groper (RIG), also    referred to in this document as "rig", can be used to query the LISP-    DDT hierarchy.  This document describes how the "rig" tool works.
