Or you simply rewrite the first 48 bits when the packet traverses the
border into the destination site with the same value the packet had
prior to traversing the border of the source site.
This was not part of any GSE proposal I ever saw,
Yes. In one approach, a mapping of a globally unique 48 bit value to a
set of other globally unique 48 bit values where that distributed
lookup of that mapping occurs at the source border only.
and it involves stateful
distribution of mapping information.
Your alarm must go off continually today, as the mapping is more or
less equivalent to either the DNS or routing tables, depending on your
point of view.
A very different beast from GSE,
and it sets off my stateful=bad alarm.
