Welcome to LISP Flow Mapping
Please take a look at the project's old wiki page for extra information. Some of the content there may not be up to date, if in doubt, contact us.
The Lisp Flow Mapping service provides LISP Mapping System services. This includes LISP Map-Server and LISP Map-Resolver services, to store and serve the mapping data to data plane nodes as well as to OpenDaylight applications. Mapping data can include mapping of virtual addresses to physical network address where the virtual nodes are reachable/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 via the LISP control protocol (Map-Register, Map-Request, Map-Reply messages).
