Hi,

this is my review of -08 (and -09 since one single change has been proposed in -09, more inline).

The number of comments is not enormous so I expect that they are all tracked.

Thanks

> Abstract
> 
>    This document describes the data-plane protocol for the Locator/ID
>    Separation Protocol (LISP).  LISP defines two namespaces, End-point
>    Identifiers (EIDs) that identify end-hosts and Routing Locators
>    (RLOCs) that identify network attachment points.  With this, LISP
>    effectively separates control from data, and allows routers to create
>    overlay networks.  LISP-capable routers exchange encapsulated packets
>    according to EID-to-RLOC mappings stored in a local map-cache.
> 
>    LISP requires no change to either host protocol stacks or to underlay
>    routers and offers Traffic Engineering, multihoming and mobility,
>    among other features.

> 1.  Introduction
> 
>    This document describes the Locator/Identifier Separation Protocol
>    (LISP).  LISP is an encapsulation protocol built around the
>    fundamental idea of separating the topological location of a network
>    attachment point from the node's identity [CHIAPPA].  As a result
>    LISP creates two namespaces: Endpoint Identifiers (EIDs), that are
>    used to identify end-hosts (e.g., nodes or Virtual Machines) and
>    routable Routing Locators (RLOCs), used to identify network
>    attachment points.  LISP then defines functions for mapping between
>    the two namespaces and for encapsulating traffic originated by
>    devices using non-routable EIDs for transport across a network
>    infrastructure that routes and forwards using RLOCs.  LISP
>    encapsulation uses a dynamic form of tunneling where no static
>    provisioning is required or necessary.
> 
>    LISP is an overlay protocol that separates control from data-plane,

>    appropriate location.  Tunnel routers are equipped with a cache,
>    called map-cache, that contains EID-to-RLOC mappings.  The map-cache
>    is populated using the LISP Control-Plane protocol
>    [I-D.ietf-lisp-rfc6833bis].

>    LISP does not require changes to either host protocol stack or to
>    underlay routers.  By separating the EID from the RLOC space, LISP
>    offers native Traffic Engineering, multihoming and mobility, among

>    Creation of LISP was initially motivated by discussions during the
>    IAB-sponsored Routing and Addressing Workshop held in Amsterdam in
>    October 2006 (see [RFC4984])
> 
>    This document specifies the LISP data-plane encapsulation and other
>    LISP forwarding node functionality while [I-D.ietf-lisp-rfc6833bis]
>    specifies the LISP control plane.  LISP deployment guidelines can be
>    found in [RFC7215] and [RFC6835] describes considerations for network
>    operational management.  Finally, [I-D.ietf-lisp-introduction]

>    The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
>    "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
>    document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].
> 
> 3.  Definition of Terms
>    Address Family Identifier (AFI):   AFI is a term used to describe an
>       address encoding in a packet.  An address family that pertains to
>       the data-plane.  See [AFN] and [RFC3232] for details.  An AFI
>       value of 0 used in this specification indicates an unspecified
>       encoded address where the length of the address is 0 octets
>       following the 16-bit AFI value of 0.
> 
>    Anycast Address:  Anycast Address is a term used in this document to
>       refer to the same IPv4 or IPv6 address configured and used on
>       multiple systems at the same time.  An EID or RLOC can be an
>       anycast address in each of their own address spaces.
> 
>    Client-side:  Client-side is a term used in this document to indicate
>       a connection initiation attempt by an EID.

[Luigi]
As stated for -07 and discussed later: merge the three bullets above so to simplify the flow.
Here is the proposed single-bullet text:

o    End-systems only send to addresses that are EIDs.  EIDs are typically 
      IP addresses assigned to hosts (other types of EID are supported by LISP, 
      see [RFC8060] for further information). End-systems don't know
      that addresses are EIDs versus RLOCs but assume that packets get
      to their intended destinations.  In a system where LISP is
      deployed, LISP routers intercept EID-addressed packets and assist
      in delivering them across the network core where EIDs cannot be
      routed.  The procedure a host uses to send IP packets does not
      change.
> 
>    o  LISP routers mostly deal with Routing Locator addresses.  See
>       details in Section 4.1 to clarify what is meant by "mostly".
> 
>    o  RLOCs are always IP addresses assigned to routers, preferably
>       topologically oriented addresses from provider CIDR (Classless
>       Inter-Domain Routing) blocks.
> 
>    o  When a router originates packets, it MAY use as a source address
>       either an EID or RLOC.  When acting as a host (e.g., when
>       terminating a transport session such as Secure SHell (SSH),
>       TELNET, or the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP)), it MAY
>       use an EID that is explicitly assigned for that purpose.  An EID
>       that identifies the router as a host MUST NOT be used as an RLOC;
>       an EID is only routable within the scope of a site.  A typical BGP
>       configuration might demonstrate this "hybrid" EID/RLOC usage where
>       a router could use its "host-like" EID to terminate iBGP sessions
>       to other routers in a site while at the same time using RLOCs to
>       terminate eBGP sessions to routers outside the site.
> 
>    o  Packets with EIDs in them are not expected to be delivered end-to-
>       end in the absence of an EID-to-RLOC mapping operation.  They are
>       expected to be used locally for intra-site communication or to be
>       encapsulated for inter-site communication.

As stated for -07 the above bullet (even if modified compare to -07) is about scalability and should be removed.

>    fragmented as they are encapsulated by the ITR.  Instead, the packet
>    is dropped and an ICMP Unreachable/Fragmentation-Needed message is
>    returned to the source.

>    In the case when fragmentation is needed, this specification
>    RECOMMENDS that implementations provide support for one of the
>    proposed fragmentation and reassembly schemes.  Two existing schemes
>    are detailed in Section 7.
> 
>    Since IPv4 or IPv6 addresses can be either EIDs or RLOCs, the LISP
>    architecture supports IPv4 EIDs with IPv6 RLOCs (where the inner
>    header is in IPv4 packet format and the outer header is in IPv6
>    packet format) or IPv6 EIDs with IPv4 RLOCs (where the inner header
>    is in IPv6 packet format and the outer header is in IPv4 packet
>    format).  The next sub-sections illustrate packet formats for the
>    homogeneous case (IPv4-in-IPv4 and IPv6-in-IPv6), but all 4
>    combinations MUST be supported.  Additional types of EIDs are defined

> 9.  Routing Locator Selection 
[Luigi]
As stated for -07:

Large part of this section is about control plane issues and as such should be put in 6833bis.

What this section should state is that priority and weight are used to select the RLOC to use.
Only exception is gleaning where we have one single RLOC and we do not know neither priority nor weight.

All the other operational discussion goes elsewhere, but not in this document.


>    Both the client-side and server-side MAY need control over the
>    selection of RLOCs for conversations between them.  This control is
>    achieved by manipulating the 'Priority' and 'Weight' fields in EID-
>    to-RLOC Map-Reply messages.  Alternatively, RLOC information MAY be
>    gleaned from received tunneled packets or EID-to-RLOC Map-Request
>    messages.
> 
>    The following are different scenarios for choosing RLOCs and the
>    controls that are available:
> 
>    o  The server-side returns one RLOC.  The client-side can only use
>       one RLOC.  The server-side has complete control of the selection.
> 
>    o  The server-side returns a list of RLOCs where a subset of the list
>       has the same best Priority.  The client can only use the subset
>       list according to the weighting assigned by the server-side.  In
>       this case, the server-side controls both the subset list and load-
>       splitting across its members.  The client-side can use RLOCs
>       outside of the subset list if it determines that the subset list
>       is unreachable (unless RLOCs are set to a Priority of 255).  Some
>       sharing of control exists: the server-side determines the
>       destination RLOC list and load distribution while the client-side
>       has the option of using alternatives to this list if RLOCs in the
>       list are unreachable.
> 
>    o  The server-side sets a Weight of 0 for the RLOC subset list.  In
>       this case, the client-side can choose how the traffic load is
>       spread across the subset list.  Control is shared by the server-
>       side determining the list and the client determining load
>       distribution.  Again, the client can use alternative RLOCs if the
>       server-provided list of RLOCs is unreachable.
> 
>    o  Either side (more likely the server-side ETR) decides not to send
>       a Map-Request.  For example, if the server-side ETR does not send
>       Map-Requests, it gleans RLOCs from the client-side ITR, giving the

>       controls how traffic is returned and can alternate using an outer-
>       header source RLOC, which then can be added to the list the

As stated for -07:

There exists data-plane based reachability mechanisms and control plane reachability mechanisms.
We have to keep here only the data plane based mechanism and move the other in 6833bis.

We need to keep: 1, 6, Echo-Nonce, 

We need to move: 2, 3, 4, 5,  RLOC-Probing

The fact that (P)ITRs use this mechanism does make it a data-plane mechanism. is the LISP control plane running on (P)ITRs that does it, using control plane messages.

>    to be taken for a destination address, as it would appear in an IP
>    header.  Therefore, a group address that appears in an inner IP
>    header built by a source host will be used as the destination EID.
>    The outer IP header (the destination Routing Locator address),
>    prepended by a LISP router, can use the same group address as the
>    destination Routing Locator, use a multicast or unicast Routing
>    Locator obtained from a Mapping System lookup, or use other means to
>    determine the group address mapping.
> 
>    With respect to the source Routing Locator address, the ITR prepends
>    its own IP address as the source address of the outer IP header.
>    Just like it would if the destination EID was a unicast address.
>    This source Routing Locator address, like any other Routing Locator

>       by the ETR (those for which the router provides an RLOC
>       translation).  These FIB entries are marked with a flag indicating
>       that control-plane processing SHOULD be performed.  The forwarding
>       logic of testing for particular IP protocol number values is not
>       necessary.  There are a few proven cases where no changes to
>       existing deployed hardware were needed to support the LISP data-
>       plane.
> 
>    o  On an ITR, prepending a new IP header consists of adding more

As stated for -07:

lisp-sec is control-plane has to be referenced in 6833bis.

authentication and integrity of mappings is a control plane issue.

>    The optional mechanisms of gleaning is offered to directly obtain a
>    mapping from the LISP encapsulated packets.  Specifically, an xTR can
>    learn the EID-to-RLOC mapping by inspecting the source RLOC and
>    source EID of an encapsulated packet, and insert this new mapping
>    into its map-cache.  An off-path attacker can spoof the source EID
>    address to divert the traffic sent to the victim's spoofed EID.  If
>    the attacker spoofs the source RLOC, it can mount a DoS attack by
>    redirecting traffic to the spoofed victim;s RLOC, potentially
>    overloading it.
> 
>    The LISP Data-Plane defines several mechanisms to monitor RLOC data-
>    plane reachability, in this context Locator-Status Bits, Nonce-
>    Present and Echo-Nonce bits of the LISP encapsulation header can be
>    manipulated by an attacker to mount a DoS attack.  An off-path
>    attacker able to spoof the RLOC of a victim's xTR can manipulate such
>    mechanisms to declare a set of RLOCs unreachable.  This can be used
>    also, for instance, to declare only one RLOC reachable with the aim
>    of overload it.
> 
>    Map-Versioning is a data-plane mechanism used to signal a peering xTR

As stated for -07:

4342 is control-plane and MUST be requested to IANA in the 6833bis document.

> 
>    A special and appreciative thank you goes to Noel Chiappa for
>    providing architectural impetus over the past decades on separation
>    of location and identity, as well as detailed reviews of the LISP
>    architecture and documents, coupled with enthusiasm for making LISP a
>    practical and incremental transition for the Internet.
> 
>    The authors would like to gratefully acknowledge many people who have
