                 HIP BONE: Host Identity Protocol (HIP)
              Based Overlay Networking Environment (BONE)

Abstract

   This document specifies a framework to build HIP-based (Host Identity
   Protocol) overlay networks.  This framework uses HIP to perform
   connection management.  Other functions, such as data storage and
   retrieval or overlay maintenance, are implemented using protocols
   other than HIP.  These protocols are loosely referred to as "peer
   protocols".
