Chapter 10. LISP Security

As the use of LISP has advanced in the Internet of Things (IoT) space along with the enterprise and data center, security has become a major concern that keeps network architects and network engineers up at night. The number of connected IoT devices is increasing rapidly and poses a huge security threat to the network infrastructure. There are two main aspects of any LISP deployment: the control plane and the data plane. LISP provides support for features to secure both the control plane and the data plane. This chapter elaborates on securing the LISP control plane as well as the LISP data plane.

This chapter covers the following topics:

  • Securing the LISP control plane using LISP-SEC

  • Securing the LISP data plane
