Technical Summary This document defines mobility extensions to the Host Identity Protocol (HIP). Specifically, this document defines a general "LOCATOR_SET" parameter for HIP messages that allows for a HIP host to notify peers about alternate addresses at which it may be reached. This document also defines elements of procedure for mobility of a HIP host -- the process by which a host dynamically changes the primary locator that it uses to receive packets. While the same LOCATOR_SET parameter can also be used to support end-host multihoming, detailed procedures are out of scope for this document. This document obsoletes RFC 5206. 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 new standards-track specs like this one. Personnel Gonzalo Camarillo is the documetn shepherd. Terry Manderson is the responsible area director.
