Technical Summary This memo describes a new namespace, the Host Identity namespace, and a new protocol layer, the Host Identity Protocol, between the internetworking and transport layers. Herein are presented the basics of the current namespaces, their strengths and weaknesses, and how a new namespace will add completeness to them. The roles of this new namespace in the protocols are defined. This document obsoletes RFC 4423 and addresses the concerns raised by the IESG, particularly that of crypto agility. It incorporates lessons learned from the implementations of RFC 5201 and goes further to explain how HIP works as a secure signaling channel. Working Group Summary There was WG consensus behind this document. Document Quality As discussed in RFC 6538, there are several implementations of the Experimental HIP specs. At least, HIP for Linux and OpenHIP will be updated to comply with the updated Standards-track specifications Personnel Gonzalo Camarillo is the document shepherd. Terry Manderson is the responsible area director.
