The Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP) is a protocol to
encapsulate IP packets in order to allow end sites to route to one
another without injecting routes from one end of the Internet to
another.  This memo presents an experimental database and a
discussion of methods to transport the mapping of Endpoint IDs (EIDs)
to Routing Locators (RLOCs) to routers in a reliable, scalable, and
secure manner.  Our analysis concludes that transport of all EID-to-
RLOC mappings scales well to at least 10^8 entries.  This document 
defines an Experimental Protocol for the Internet community.

EXPERIMENTAL: This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the
