Locator-ID Separation Protocol
The Locator-ID separation protocol (LISP) is an experimental networking protocol in the Internet Engineering Task Force draft stage. It allows incremental introduction of IPv6 into the existing IPv4 core, by separating the mapping of routing locators from endpoint identifiers. It also can be used purely for IPv6.
