This document describes data structures and API support for Mobile IPv6 as an extension to Advanced Socket API support for IPv6. Mobility Support in IPv6 introduces mobility protocol header for IPv6. It is expected that future Mobile IPv6 applications and implementations may need to access Mobility binding messages and Return Routability messages for diagnostic, packet accounting and local policy setting purposes. In order to provide portability for Mobile IP applications that use sockets under IPv6, standardization is needed for the Mobile IPv6 specific APIs.
