Optimizing the process by which host routes are leaked to an Internet Protocol (IP) virtual private network (VPN) unicast is of singular importance in a large network environment. To address this type of challenge, techniques are presented herein that support a dynamic means for limiting the host advertisements in a network where hosts are announced only on an as-needed basis. In effect, aspects of the presented techniques optimize what is leaked and optimize the total number of routes in a spine.
