1.  Introduction

   The LISP architecture and protocols [RFC6830] introduces two new
   numbering spaces, Endpoint Identifiers (EIDs) and Routing Locators
   (RLOCs) which are intended to replace most use of IP addresses on the
   Internet.  To provide flexibility for current and future
   applications, these values can be encoded in LISP control messages
   using a general syntax that includes Address Family Identifier (AFI),
   length, and value fields.

   Currently defined AFIs include IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, which are
   formatted according to code-points assigned in [AFI] as follows:

   IPv4 Encoded Address:

     0                   1                   2                   3
     0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    |            AFI = 1            |       IPv4 Address ...        |
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    |     ...  IPv4 Address         |
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

   IPv6 Encoded Address:

     0                   1                   2                   3
     0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    |            AFI = 2            |       IPv6 Address ...        |
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    |                     ...  IPv6 Address  ...                    |
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    |                     ...  IPv6 Address  ...                    |
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    |                     ...  IPv6 Address  ...                    |
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    |     ...  IPv6 Address         |
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

   This document describes the currently-defined AFIs the LISP protocol
   uses along with their encodings and introduces the LISP Canonical
   Address Format (LCAF) that can be used to define the LISP-specific
   encodings for arbitrary AFI values.

2.  Definition of Terms

   Address Family Identifier (AFI):  a term used to describe an address
      encoding in a packet.  An address family currently defined for
      IPv4 or IPv6 addresses.  See [AFI] and [RFC1700] for details.  The
      reserved AFI value of 0 is used in this specification to indicate
      an unspecified encoded address where the the length of the address
      is 0 bytes following the 16-bit AFI value of 0.

   Unspecified Address Format:

     0                   1                   2                   3
     0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    |            AFI = 0            |    <nothing follows AFI=0>    |
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

   Endpoint ID (EID):   a 32-bit (for IPv4) or 128-bit (for IPv6) value
      used in the source and destination address fields of the first
      (most inner) LISP header of a packet.  The host obtains a
      destination EID the same way it obtains a destination address
      today, for example through a DNS lookup or SIP exchange.  The
      source EID is obtained via existing mechanisms used to set a
      host's "local" IP address.  An EID is allocated to a host from an
      EID-prefix block associated with the site where the host is
      located.  An EID can be used by a host to refer to other hosts.

   Routing Locator (RLOC):   the IPv4 or IPv6 address of an egress
      tunnel router (ETR).  It is the output of a EID-to-RLOC mapping
      lookup.  An EID maps to one or more RLOCs.  Typically, RLOCs are
      numbered from topologically aggregatable blocks that are assigned
      to a site at each point to which it attaches to the global
      Internet; where the topology is defined by the connectivity of
      provider networks, RLOCs can be thought of as PA addresses.
      Multiple RLOCs can be assigned to the same ETR device or to
      multiple ETR devices at a site.

3.  LISP Canonical Address Format Encodings

   IANA has assigned AFI value 16387 (0x4003) to the LISP architecture
   and protocols.  This specification defines the encoding format of the
   LISP Canonical Address (LCA).  This section defines both experimental
   types as well as types that reside in the registry that have
   corresponding working group drafts.  See IANA Considerations section
   for a list of types that will reside in the LISP-LCAF Registry.

   The Address Family AFI definitions from [AFI] only allocate code-
   points for the AFI value itself.  The length of the address or entity

   that follows is not defined and is implied based on conventional
   experience.  Where the LISP protocol uses LISP Canonical Addresses
   specifically, the address length definitions will be in this
   specification and take precedent over any other specification.

   The first 6 bytes of an LISP Canonical Address are followed by a
   variable length of fields:

     0                   1                   2                   3
     0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    |           AFI = 16387         |     Rsvd1     |     Flags     |
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    |    Type       |     Rsvd2     |            Length             |
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

   Rsvd1:  this 8-bit field is reserved for future use and MUST be
      transmitted as 0 and ignored on receipt.

   Flags:  this 8-bit field is for future definition and use.  For now,
      set to zero on transmission and ignored on receipt.

   Type:  this 8-bit field is specific to the LISP Canonical Address
      formatted encodings, values are:

     Type 0:  Null Body Type

     Type 1:  AFI List Type

     Type 2:  Instance ID Type

     Type 3:  AS Number Type

     Type 4:  Application Data Type

     Type 5:  Geo Coordinates Type

     Type 6:  Opaque Key Type

     Type 7:  NAT-Traversal Type

     Type 8:  Nonce Locator Type

     Type 9:  Multicast Info Type

     Type 10:  Explicit Locator Path Type

     Type 11:  Security Key Type

Internet-Draft    LISP Canonical Address Format (LCAF)        March 2016


     Type 12:  Source/Dest Key Type

     Type 13:  Replication List Entry Type

     Type 14:  JSON Data Model Type

     Type 15:  Key/Value Address Pair Type

     Type 16:  Encapsulation Format Type

   Rsvd2:  this 8-bit field is reserved for future use and MUST be
      transmitted as 0 and ignored on receipt.

   Length:  this 16-bit field is in units of bytes and covers all of the
      LISP Canonical Address payload, starting and including the byte
      after the Length field.  So any LCAF encoded address will have a
      minimum length of 8 bytes when the Length field is 0.  The 8 bytes
      include the AFI, Flags, Type, Reserved, and Length fields.  When
      the AFI is not next to encoded address in a control message, then
      the encoded address will have a minimum length of 6 bytes when the
      Length field is 0.  The 6 bytes include the Flags, Type, Reserved,
      and Length fields.

   [RFC6830] states RLOC records are sorted when encoded in control
   messages so the locator-set has consistent order across all xTRs for
   a given EID.  The sort order is based on sort-key {afi, RLOC-
   address}. When an RLOC is LCAF encoded, the sort-key is {afi, LCAF-
   Type, payload}. Therefore, when a locator-set has a mix of AFI
   records and LCAF records, all LCAF records will appear after all the
   AFI records.

4.  LISP Canonical Address Applications

4.1.  Segmentation using LISP

   When multiple organizations inside of a LISP site are using private
   addresses [RFC1918] as EID-prefixes, their address spaces must remain
   segregated due to possible address duplication.  An Instance ID in
   the address encoding can aid in making the entire AFI based address
   unique.

   Another use for the Instance ID LISP Canonical Address Format is when
   creating multiple segmented VPNs inside of a LISP site where keeping
   EID-prefix based subnets is desirable.

   Instance ID LISP Canonical Address Format:

     0                   1                   2                   3
     0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    |           AFI = 16387         |     Rsvd1     |     Flags     |
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    |   Type = 2    | IID mask-len  |             4 + n             |
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    |                         Instance ID                           |
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    |              AFI = x          |         Address  ...          |
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

   IID mask-len:  if the AFI is set to 0, then this format is not
      encoding an extended EID-prefix but rather an instance-ID range
      where the 'IID mask-len' indicates the number of high-order bits
      used in the Instance ID field for the range.

   Length value n:  length in bytes of the AFI address that follows the
      Instance ID field including the AFI field itself.

   Instance ID:  the low-order 24-bits that can go into a LISP data
      header when the I-bit is set.  See [RFC6830] for details.

   AFI = x:  x can be any AFI value from [AFI].

   This LISP Canonical Address Type can be used to encode either EID or
   RLOC addresses.

   Usage: When used as a lookup key, the EID is regarded as a extended-
   EID in the mapping system.  And this encoding is used in EID records
   in Map-Requests, Map-Replies, Map-Registers, and Map-Notify messages.

   When LISP-DDT [LISP-DDT] is used as the mapping system mechanism,
   extended EIDs are used in Map-Referral messages.





















4.2.  Carrying AS Numbers in the Mapping Database

   When an AS number is stored in the LISP Mapping Database System for
   either policy or documentation reasons, it can be encoded in a LISP
   Canonical Address.

   AS Number LISP Canonical Address Format:

     0                   1                   2                   3
     0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    |           AFI = 16387         |     Rsvd1     |     Flags     |
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    |   Type = 3    |     Rsvd2     |             4 + n             |
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    |                           AS Number                           |
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    |              AFI = x          |         Address  ...          |
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

   Length value n:  length in bytes of the AFI address that follows the
      AS Number field including the AFI field itself.

   AS Number:  the 32-bit AS number of the autonomous system that has
      been assigned either the EID or RLOC that follows.

Internet-Draft    LISP Canonical Address Format (LCAF)        March 2016


   AFI = x:  x can be any AFI value from [AFI].

   The AS Number Canonical Address Type can be used to encode either EID
   or RLOC addresses.  The former is used to describe the LISP-ALT AS
   number the EID-prefix for the site is being carried for.  The latter
   is used to describe the AS that is carrying RLOC based prefixes in

   Usage: This encoding can be used in EID or RLOC records in Map-
   Requests, Map-Replies, Map-Registers, and Map-Notify messages.  When
   LISP-DDT [LISP-DDT] is used as the mapping system mechanism, extended
   EIDs are used in Map-Referral messages.





















4.3.  Assigning Geo Coordinates to Locator Addresses

   If an ETR desires to send a Map-Reply describing the Geo Coordinates
   for each locator in its locator-set, it can use the Geo Coordinate
   Type to convey physical location information.

   Coordinates are specified using the WGS-84 (World Geodetic System)
   reference coordinate system [WGS-84].

   MS UDP Port Number:  this is the UDP port number of the Map-Server
      and is set to 4342.

   ETR UDP Port Number:  this is the port number returned to a LISP
      system which was copied from the source port from a packet that
      has flowed through a NAT device.

   AFI = x:  x can be any AFI value from [AFI].

   Global ETR RLOC Address:  this is an address known to be globally
      unique built by NAT-traversal functionality in a LISP router.

   MS RLOC Address:  this is the address of the Map-Server used in the
      destination RLOC of a packet that has flowed through a NAT device.

   Private ETR RLOC Address:  this is an address known to be a private
      address inserted in this LCAF format by a LISP router that resides
      on the private side of a NAT device.

   RTR RLOC Address:  this is an encapsulation address used by an ITR or
      PITR which resides behind a NAT device.  This address is known to
      have state in a NAT device so packets can flow from it to the LISP
      ETR behind the NAT.  There can be one or more NTR addresses
      supplied in these set of fields.  The number of NTRs encoded is
      determined by the LCAF length field.  When there are no NTRs
      supplied, the NTR fields can be omitted and reflected by the LCAF
      length field or an AFI of 0 can be used to indicate zero NTRs
      encoded.

   Usage: This encoding can be used in Info-Request and Info-Reply
   messages.  The mapping system does not store this information.  The
   information is used by an xTR and Map-Server to convey private and
   public address information when traversing NAT and firewall devices.

4.5.  Multicast Group Membership Information

   Multicast group information can be published in the mapping database
   so a lookup on an EID based group address can return a replication
   list of group addresses or a unicast addresses for single replication
   or multiple head-end replications.  The intent of this type of
   unicast replication is to deliver packets to multiple ETRs at
   receiver LISP multicast sites.  The locator-set encoding for this EID
   record type can be a list of ETRs when they each register with "Merge
   Semantics".  The encoding can be a typical AFI encoded locator
   address.  When an RTR list is being registered (with multiple levels
   according to [LISP-RE]), the Replication List Entry LCAF type is used
   for locator encoding.

   This LCAF encoding can be used to send broadcast packets to all
   members of a subnet when each EIDs are away from their home subnet
   location.

   Instance ID:  the low-order 24-bits that can go into a LISP data
      header when the I-bit is set.  See [RFC6830] for details.  The use
      of the Instance-ID in this LCAF type is to associate a multicast
      forwarding entry for a given VPN.  The instance-ID describes the
      VPN and is registered to the mapping database system as a 3-tuple
      of (Instance-ID, S-prefix, G-prefix).

   Source MaskLen:  the mask length of the source prefix that follows.

   Group MaskLen:  the mask length of the group prefix that follows.

   AFI = x:  x can be any AFI value from [AFI].  When a specific AFI has
      its own encoding of a multicast address, this field must be either
      a group address or a broadcast address.

   Length value n:  length in bytes of fields that follow.

   Lookup bit (L):  this is the Lookup bit used to indicate to the user
      of the ELP to not use this address for encapsulation but to look
      it up in the mapping database system to obtain an encapsulating
      RLOC address.

   RLOC-Probe bit (P):  this is the RLOC-probe bit which means the
      Reencap Hop allows RLOC-probe messages to be sent to it.  When the
      R-bit is set to 0, RLOC-probes must not be sent.  When a Reencap
      Hop is an anycast address then multiple physical Reencap Hops are
      using the same RLOC address.  In this case, RLOC-probes are not
      needed because when the closest RLOC address is not reachable
      another RLOC address can reachable.

   Strict bit (S):  this the strict bit which means the associated
      Rencap Hop is required to be used.  If this bit is 0, the
      reencapsulator can skip this Reencap Hop and go to the next one in
      the list.

   AFI = x:  x can be any AFI value from [AFI].  When a specific AFI has
      its own encoding of a multicast address, this field must be either
      a group address or a broadcast address.

   Usage: This encoding can be used in RLOC records in Map-Requests,
   Map-Replies, Map-Registers, and Map-Notify messages.  This encoding
   not need to be understood by the mapping system for mapping database
   lookups since this LCAF type is not a lookup key.

   Length value n:  length in bytes of fields that start with the Key
      Material field.

   Key Count:  the Key Count field declares the number of Key sections
      included in this LCAF.

   Key Algorithm:  the Algorithm field identifies the key's
      cryptographic algorithm and specifies the format of the Public Key
      field.

   R bit:  this is the revoke bit and, if set, it specifies that this
      Key is being Revoked.

   Key Length:  this field determines the length in bytes of the Key
      Material field.

   Key Material:  the Key Material field stores the key material.  The
      format of the key material stored depends on the Key Algorithm
      field.

   AFI = x:  x can be any AFI value from [AFI].This is the locator
      address that owns the encoded security key.

   Level Value:  this value is associated with the level within the
      overlay distribution tree hierarchy where the RTR resides.  The
      level numbers are ordered from lowest value being close to the ITR
      (meaning that ITRs replicate to level-0 RTRs) and higher levels
      are further downstream on the distribution tree closer to ETRs of
      multicast receiver sites.

   AFI = x:  x can be any AFI value from [AFI].  A specific AFI has its
      own encoding of either a unicast or multicast locator address.
      All RTR/ETR entries for the same level should be combined together
      by a Map-Server to avoid searching through the entire multi-level
      list of locator entries in a Map-Reply message.

   Usage: This encoding can be used in RLOC records in Map-Requests,
   Map-Replies, Map-Registers, and Map-Notify messages.

Internet-Draft    LISP Canonical Address Format (LCAF)        March 2016


4.10.  Applications for AFI List Type

4.10.1.  Binding IPv4 and IPv6 Addresses

   When header translation between IPv4 and IPv6 is desirable a LISP
   Canonical Address can use the AFI List Type to carry multiple AFIs in
   one LCAF AFI.

   Address Binding LISP Canonical Address Format:

     0                   1                   2                   3

    |   Type = 1    |     Rsvd2     |         2 + 4 + 2 + 16        |
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
    |     ...  IPv4 Address         |            AFI = 2            |
    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

   Length:  length in bytes is fixed at 24 when IPv4 and IPv6 AFI
      encoded addresses are used.

   This type of address format can be included in a Map-Request when the
   address is being used as an EID, but the Mapping Database System
   lookup destination can use only the IPv4 address.  This is so a
   Mapping Database Service Transport System, such as LISP-ALT
   [RFC6836], can use the Map-Request destination address to route the
   control message to the desired LISP site.

   Usage: This encoding can be used in EID or RLOC records in Map-
   Requests, Map-Replies, Map-Registers, and Map-Notify messages.  See
   subsections in this section for specific use cases.

    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

   Length:  length in bytes is fixed at 8 when MAC address AFI encoded
      addresses are used.

   This address format can be used to connect layer-2 domains together
   using LISP over an IPv4 or IPv6 core network to create a layer-2 VPN.
   In this use-case, a MAC address is being used as an EID, and the
   locator-set that this EID maps to can be an IPv4 or IPv6 RLOCs, or
   even another MAC address being used as an RLOC.

   If DNS names or URIs are stored in the LISP Mapping Database System,
   the AFI List Type can be used to carry an ASCII string where it is
   delimited by length 'n' of the LCAF Length encoding.

   ASCII LISP Canonical Address Format:

   Length:  length in bytes is fixed at 18 when an AFI=1 IPv4 address is
      included.

   This format could be used by a Mapping Database Transport System,
   such as LISP-ALT [RFC6836], where the AFI=1 IPv4 address is used as
   an EID and placed in the Map-Request destination address by the
   sending LISP system.  The ALT system can deliver the Map-Request to
   the LISP destination site independent of the Application Data Type
   AFI payload values.  When this AFI is processed by the destination
   LISP site, it can return different locator-sets based on the type of
   application or level of service that is being requested.

4.10.5.  Compatibility Mode Use Case

   A LISP system should use the AFI List Type format when sending to
   LISP systems that do not support a particular LCAF Type used to
   encode locators.  This allows the receiving system to be able to
   parse a locator address for encapsulation purposes.  The list of AFIs
   in an AFI List LCAF Type has no semantic ordering and a receiver
   should parse each AFI element no matter what the ordering.

   Compatibility Mode Address Format:

     0                   1                   2                   3

    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

   If a system does not recognized the Geo Coordinate LCAF Type that is
   accompanying a locator address, an encoder can include the Geo
   Coordinate LCAF Type embedded in a AFI List LCAF Type where the AFI
   in the Geo Coordinate LCAF is set to 0 and the AFI encoded next in
   the list is encoded with a valid AFI value to identify the locator
   address.

   A LISP system is required to support the AFI List LCAF Type to use
   this procedure.  It would skip over 10 bytes of the Geo Coordinate
   LCAF Type to get to the locator address encoding (an IPv4 locator
   address).  A LISP system that does support the Geo Coordinate LCAF
   Type can support parsing the locator address within the Geo
   Coordinate LCAF encoding or in the locator encoding that follows in
   the AFI List LCAF.

5.  Experimental LISP Canonical Address Applications

5.1.  Convey Application Specific Data

   When a locator-set needs to be conveyed based on the type of
   application or the Per-Hop Behavior (PHB) of a packet, the
   Application Data Type can be used.

   Application Data LISP Canonical Address Format:

     0                   1                   2                   3

    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

   Length value n:  length in bytes of the AFI address that follows the
      8-byte Application Data fields including the AFI field itself.

   IP TOS, IPv6 TC, or Flow Label:  this field stores the 8-bit IPv4 TOS
      field used in an IPv4 header, the 8-bit IPv6 Traffic Class or Flow
      Label used in an IPv6 header.

   Local Port/Remote Port Ranges:  these fields are from the TCP, UDP,
      or SCTP transport header.  A range can be specified by using a
      lower value and an upper value.  When a single port is encoded,
      the lower and upper value fields are the same.

   AFI = x:  x can be any AFI value from [AFI].

   The Application Data Canonical Address Type is used for an EID
   encoding when an ITR wants a locator-set for a specific application.
   When used for an RLOC encoding, the ETR is supplying a locator-set
   for each specific application is has been configured to advertise.

   Usage: This encoding can be used in EID records in Map-Requests, Map-
   Replies, Map-Registers, and Map-Notify messages.  When LISP-DDT
   [LISP-DDT] is used as the mapping system mechanism, extended EIDs are

   used in Map-Referral messages.  This LCAF type is used as a lookup
   key to the mapping system that can return a longest-match or exact-
   match entry.





















5.2.  Generic Database Mapping Lookups

   When the LISP Mapping Database system holds information accessed by a
   generic formatted key (where the key is not the usual IPv4 or IPv6
   address), an opaque key may be desirable.

   Opaque Key LISP Canonical Address Format:

   Key Field Num:  the number of fields (minus 1) the key can be broken
      up into.  The width of the fields are fixed length.  So for a key
      size of 8 bytes, with a Key Field Num of 4 allows 4 fields of 2
      bytes in length.  Valid values for this field range from 0 to 15
      supporting a maximum of 16 field separations.

   Key Wildcard Fields:  describes which fields in the key are not used
      as part of the key lookup.  This wildcard encoding is a bitfield.
      Each bit is a don't-care bit for a corresponding field in the key.
      Bit 0 (the low-order bit) in this bitfield corresponds the first
      field, right-justified in the key, bit 1 the second field, and so
      on.  When a bit is set in the bitfield it is a don't-care bit and
      should not be considered as part of the database lookup.  When the
      entire 16-bits is set to 0, then all bits of the key are used for
      the database lookup.

   Key:  the variable length key used to do a LISP Database Mapping
      lookup.  The length of the key is the value n (shown above) minus
      3.

   Usage: This is an experimental type where the usage has not been
   defined yet.

5.4.  Data Model Encoding

   This type allows a JSON data model to be encoded either as an EID or
   RLOC.

   JSON Data Model Type Address Format:

   Length value n:  length in bytes of fields that follow.

   Rsvd{1,2}:  must be set to zero and ignore on receipt.

   B bit:  indicates that the JSON field is binary encoded according to
      [JSON-BINARY] when the bit is set to 1.  Otherwise the encoding is
      based on text encoding according to [RFC4627].

   JSON length:  length in octets of the following 'JSON binary/text
      encoding' field.

   JSON binary/text encoding field:  a variable length field that
      contains either binary or text encodings.

   AFI = x:  x can be any AFI value from [AFI].  A specific AFI has its
      own encoding of either a unicast or multicast locator address.
      All RTR/ETR entries for the same level should be combined together
      by a Map-Server to avoid searching through the entire multi-level
      list of locator entries in a Map-Reply message.

   Usage: This is an experimental type where the usage has not been
   defined yet.

5.5.  Encoding Key/Value Address Pairs

   The Key/Value pair is for example useful for attaching attributes to
   other elements of LISP packets, such as EIDs or RLOCs.  When
   attaching attributes to EIDs or RLOCs, it's necessary to distinguish
   between the element that should be used as EID or RLOC, and hence as
   key for lookups, and additional attributes.  This is especially the
   case when the difference cannot be determined from the types of the
   elements, such as when two IP addresses are being used.

   Key/Value Pair Address Format:

     0                   1                   2                   3

    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

   Length value n:  length in bytes of fields that follow.

   Rsvd{1,2}:  must be set to zero and ignore on receipt.

   AFI = x:  x can be any AFI value from [AFI].  A specific AFI has its

      All RTR/ETR entries for the same level should be combined together
      by a Map-Server to avoid searching through the entire multi-level
      list of locator entries in a Map-Reply message.

   Address as Key:  this AFI encoded address will be attached with the
      attributes encoded in "Address as Value" which follows this field.

   Address as Value:  this AFI encoded address will be the attribute
      address that goes along with "Address as Key" which precedes this
      field.

   Usage: This is an experimental type where the usage has not been
   defined yet.

5.6.  Multiple Data-Planes

   Overlays are becoming popular in many parts of the network which have
   created an explosion of data-plane encapsulation headers.  Since the
   LISP mapping system can hold many types of address formats, it can
   represent the encapsulation format supported by an RLOC as well.
   When an encapsulator receives a Map-Reply with an Encapsulation
   Format LCAF Type encoded in an RLOC-record, it can select an
   encapsulation format, that it can support, from any of the
   encapsulation protocols which have the bit set to 1 in this LCAF
   type.

   Encapsulation Format Address Format:

     0                   1                   2                   3

    +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

   Rsvd1/Rsvd2:  must be set to zero and ignored on receipt.

   Length value n:  length in bytes of the AFI address that follows the
      next 32-bits including the AFI field itself.

   Reserved-for-Future-Encapsulations:  must be set to zero and ignored
      on receipt.  This field will get bits allocated to future
      encapsulations, as they are created.

   L: The RLOCs listed in the AFI encoded addresses in the next longword
      can accept layer3 LISP encapsulation using destination UDP port
      4341 [RFC6830].

   l: The RLOCs listed in the AFI encoded addresses in the next longword
      can accept layer2 LISP encapsulation using destination UDP port
      8472 [L2-LISP].

   V: The RLOCs listed in the AFI encoded addresses in the next longword
      can accept VXLAN encapsulation using destination UDP port 4789
      [RFC7348].

6.  Security Considerations

   There are no security considerations for this specification.  The
   security considerations are documented for the protocols that use
   LISP Canonical Addressing.  Refer to the those relevant
   specifications.

   The use of the Geo-Coordinates LCAF Type may raise physical privacy
   issues.  It can be up to the mapping system, based on policy
   parameters, when this LCAF type is returned to a Map-Requester.

7.  IANA Considerations

   This document defines a canonical address format encoding used in
   LISP control messages and in the encoding of lookup keys for the LISP
   Mapping Database System.  Such address format is based on a fixed AFI
   (16387) and a LISP LCAF Type field.

   The LISP LCAF Type field is an 8-bit field specific to the LISP
   Canonical Address formatted encodings, for which IANA is to create
   and maintain a new registry (as outlined in [RFC5226]) entitled "LISP
   LCAF Type".  Initial values for the LISP LCAF Type registry are given
   below.  Future assignments are to be made through expert review with
   a specification required publication.  Assignments consist of a LISP
   LCAF Type name and its associated value:
