Host Identity Protocol (HIP), a novel internetworking technology proposes separation of the identity-location roles of the Internet Protocol (IP). HIP has been successful from the technological perspectives for network security and mobility, however, it has very limited deployment. In this paper we assess HIP to find the reasons behind its limited deployment and highlight the challenges faced by HIP for its commercial use. We propose technological development and outline deployment strategies for the wide use of HIP. Furthermore, this paper investigates the use of HIP in Software Defined Networks (SDN) to evaluate its performance in new disruptive networking technologies. In a nutshell, this paper presents revealing challenges for the deployment of innovative networking protocols and a way ahead for successful and large scale deployment.
