Abstract: LISP is a standardized overlay protocol implementing the
locator/identifier split for the Internet. Multiple extensions exist,
e.g., for NAT traversal, traffic engineering, etc. Existing LISP
implementations are mostly platform-specific, hard to extend or they are
closed source. In this work we present a Java-based implementation for
LISP which is open-source, modular, and features a plugin mechanism that
enables simple integration of new functionality. It provides behavior
for LISP nodes, infrastructure nodes, and various extensions, it is
easily portable, can be run on various operating systems and platforms,
in particular on Android smartphones. The demo illustrates LISP-based
communication including the extensions mentioned above. In addition, the
extensibility is demonstrated by a plugin for a statistics application.
