LISP Flow Mapping

Overview

The LISP Flow Mapping service provides LISP Mapping System services. This includes LISP Map-Server and LISP Map-Resolver services to store and serve mapping data to data plane nodes as well as to OpenDaylight applications. Mapping data can include mapping of virtual addresses to physical network addresses where the virtual nodes are reachable or hosted at. Mapping data can also include a variety of routing policies including traffic engineering and load balancing. To leverage this service, OpenDaylight applications and services can use the northbound REST API to define the mappings and policies in the LISP Mapping Service. Data plane devices capable of LISP control protocol can leverage this service through a southbound LISP plugin. LISP-enabled devices must be configured to use this OpenDaylight service as their Map- Server and/or Map-Resolver.

The southbound LISP plugin supports the LISP control protocol (Map-Register, Map-Request, Map-Reply messages), and can also be used to register mappings in the OpenDaylight mapping service.
