Location/ID Separation Protocol as Solution for Enterprise Networks

Florin Teodorescu


The increased rate of expansion and adoption of the internet has raised a lot of challenges for implementing and designing network infrastructures. Among the most important challenges we find the need to have an efficient routing and address system to cope with the increasing number of devices with internet access, and also to ensure the security of these devices against malicious attacks and prevent access to confidential data. Separating the devices identity from its location by implementing the Loc/ID Split scheme, and implementing Virtual Private Networks (VPN) offer the technical support needed to overcome these challenges and increase efficiency and lower implementation costs. The scope of this article is to analyze the benefits of using Location/ID Separation Protocol together with a VPN implementation for creating a scalable infrastructure for the internet of the feature and for secure enterprise networks. The advantages and limitation of such architecture are presented below.
