LISP-MN: Mobile Networking Through LISP

The current internet architecture was not designed to easily accommodate mobility, because IP addresses are used both to identify and locate hosts. The Locator/Identifier Separation Protocol (LISP) decouples them by considering two types of addresses: EIDs that identify hosts, and RLOCs that identify network attachment points and are used as routing locators. LISP, with such separation in place, can also offer native mobility. LISP-MN is a particular case of LISP which specifies mobility. In this paper, the authors provide a comprehensive tutorial on LISP-MN, showing its main features and how it compares to existing mobility protocols.
