This document specifies two extensions to HIP to implement multi-hop routing. The first extension allows a HIP packet to carry the list of hosts that forwarded it. The second extension allows implementing source routing in HIP. That is, a host sending a HIP packet can define a set of hosts that the HIP packet should traverse.
