This document specifies a map-assisted SFC proxy. The SFC proxy uses the LISP Mapping System to store the NSH header indexed by 5-tuple, before decapsulating and forwarding the packet to the legacy function. After the function has processed the packet, the SFC proxy retrieves the NSH header from the Mapping System to SFC encapsulate it.
