HIP DEX (Host Identity Protocol Diet EXchange) is a light-weight key exchange protocol designed for constrained devices. MLE (Mesh Link Establishment) is defined for establishing and configuring secure links in IEEE 802.15.4 mesh networks. This document defines an extension of MLE protocol to encapsulate HIP DEX key exchange protocol messages.
