 An IPv6 Distributed Client Mobility Management approach using existing
                               mechanisms
                      draft-bernardos-dmm-cmip-08

Abstract

   The use of centralized mobility management approaches -- such as
   Mobile IPv6 -- poses some difficulties to operators of current and
   future networks, due to the expected large number of mobile users and
   their exigent demands.  All this has triggered the need for
   distributed mobility management alternatives, that alleviate
   operators' concerns allowing for cheaper and more efficient network
   deployments.

   This draft describes a possible way of achieving a distributed
   mobility behavior with Client Mobile IP, based on Mobile IPv6 and the
   use of Cryptographic Generated Addresses.

1.  Introduction

   Most of the currently standardized IP mobility solutions, like Mobile
   IPv6 [RFC6275], or Proxy Mobile IPv6 [RFC5213] rely to a certain
   extent on a centralized mobility anchor entity.  This centralized
   network node is in charge of both the control of the network entities
   involved in the mobility management (i.e., it is a central point for
   the control signalling), and the user data forwarding (i.e., it is
