Issue raised by J. Arkko in:


The document would benefit from a more systematic description of what the different message types, encapsulation modes, and src/dst addresses are. I had trouble following what addresses each message has in all cases, for instance.

EID-to-RLOC mapping as that would introduce a circular dependancy.


in a caching mode, where it saves information about oustanding Map-


Encapsulated Map-Reqeust to a matching ETR. It does not otherwise
Reqeusts, originates new Map-Requests to the correct ETR(s), accepts


ETR, though static configuration or another out-of-band mechanism




Encapsulated Map-Request: a LISP Map-Request with an additional
LISP header prepended. Sent to UDP destination port 4342. The
"outer" addresses are globally-routeable IP addresses, also known
as RLOCs. Used by an ITR when sending to a Map-Resolver and by a
Map-Server when sending to an ETR.

... when forwarding a MAP-Request to an ETR?

provides better information about the set
of define EID prefixes.

Reply sent by Vince Fuller:

  • The first point in this issue is more a comment on style rather than substance; the LISP document authors explicitly decided to put all of the message definitions in the base protocol document (draft-ietf-lisp) rather than to scatter them in the different subsystem documents. I thought that all of the typos and other editorial nits had been fixed in the -07 document but see that some remain; I'll fix those for -08.

Note: ticket will be closed Friday 25th March unless the responses noted here do not address the concern. If the concern is still not addressed substantive reasoning would be appreciated.

The WG Chairs will wait for the -08 version of the draft before taking a final decision on this issue.
