        Title           : Middlebox Traversal Issues of Host Identity
                          Protocol (HIP) Communication
        Author(s)       : M. Stiemerling, et al.
        Filename        : draft-irtf-hiprg-nat-00.txt
        Pages           : 13

   The Host Identity Protocol (HIP) fundamentally changes the way in
   which two Internet hosts communicate.  One key advantage over other
   schemes is that HIP does not require modifications to the traditional
   network-layer functionality of the Internet, i.e., its routers.  In
   the current Internet, however, many devices other than routers modify
   the traditional network-layer behavior of the Internet.  These
   "middleboxes" are intermediary devices that perform functions other
   than the standard functions of an IP router on the datagram path
   between source and destination hosts.  Whereas some types of
   middleboxes may not interfere with HIP at all, others can affect some
   aspects of HIP communication and others can render HIP communication
   impossible.  This document discusses the problems associated with HIP
   communication across network paths that include specific types of
   middleboxes, namely, network address translators and firewalls.  It
   identifies and discusses issues in the current HIP specifications
   that affect communication across these types of middleboxes.

NOTE:   The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
        MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
        feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
        command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
        a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
        exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
        "multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
        up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
        how to manipulate these messages.
