Title : End-Host Mobility and Multihoming with the Host
Author(s) : P. Nikander
Filename : draft-ietf-hip-mm-04.txt
Pages : 47
Date : 2006-6-26
This document defines mobility and multihoming extensions to the Host
Identity Protocol (HIP). Specifically, this document defines a
general "LOCATOR" parameter for HIP messages that allows for a HIP
host to notify peers about alternate addresses at which it may be
reached. This document also defines elements of procedure for
mobility of a HIP host-- the process by which a host dynamically
changes the primary locator that it uses to receive packets. While
the same LOCATOR parameter can also be used to support end-host
multihoming, detailed procedures are left for further study.

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.
