The Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP) is a routing architecture that provides new semantics for IP addressing. In order to simplify routing operations and improve scalability in future Internet, the LISP uses two different numbering spaces to separate the device identifier from its location. In other words, the LISP separates the 'where' and the 'who' in networking and uses a mapping system to couple the location and identifier. This paper analyses the security and functionality of the LISP mapping procedure using a formal methods approach based on Casper/FDR tool. The analysis points out several security issues in the protocol such as the lack of data confidentiality and mutual authentication. The paper addresses these issues and proposes changes that are
compatible with the implementation of the LISP.
