This note attempts to describe how to apply the MIPv6 protocol to provide fault tolerance to transport layer connections established between a multi-homed host and other hosts in the Internet. Specifically, this note addresses the usage of MIPv6 signaling messages to convey information about alternative address to be used when an outage occurs. Additionally, possible mechanisms to detect failures affecting the currently used path are explored.
