This is for testing purposes only, if you don´t know what you´re doing then you should not use this APP.
Due to a bug on the VPN-API the supported Android versions are 4.0, 4.1, 4.2 and 4.3. Google has stated that it will fix the bug in the upcoming release.
LISPmob is an open-source implementation of the Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP, RFC6830). With LISPmob, hosts can change their network attachment point without losing connectivity, while maintaining the same IP address. LISPmob supports multiple interfaces (only one active at at a time) and horizontal handovers across them. LISPmob requires that you configure an Endpoint IDentifier (EID), you may request one visiting http://lispmob.org.
LISPmob main features are (version 0.4.1):
- Register to the Mapping System
- NAT-Traversal (as defined in draft-ermagan-lisp-nat-traversal)
- Support of multiple interfaces (only one active at the same time)
- Horizontal handovers
- IPv4/IPv6 EIDs
- IPv4 RLOCs.
The LISPmob open-source code can be found at: https://github.com/LISPmob/lispmob
If you are unsure of what LISPmob is we encourage you to visit our community website: http://lispmob.org
What permission does LISPmob require?
Storage and System tools: To read/write logs as well as the configuration file (GUI->text).
Network Communication: To encapsulate/decapsulate packets from/to the Internet and instantiate the VPN-API
Additionally, the first time that you run LISPmob you will be prompted to accept that it creates the VPN-API interface. This is used to encapsulate/decapsulate data packets.
What is the difference between this App and LISPmob ROOT (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.lispmob)?
This versions takes advantage of VPN-API (equivalent to tun/tap in traditional Linux systems) to encapsulate/decapsulate packets without requiring root access. However VPN-API prevent us from using multihoming features, please refer to the ROOT application for the full LISP functionality.
