The Proxy Mobile IPv6 specification in RFC 5213 describes
network based mobility management for IPv6 hosts across IPv6
network domains. This document describes the possible
interactions between Proxy Mobile IPv6 and Mobile IPv6. It
provides some guidelines on the best practices to use when
combining these two protocols to provide mobility for end hosts.
Working Group Summary
This is a product of the NETLMM WG. There is a consensus in the WG
for publication as an informational RFC.
There have been some disagreements on the approach used to solve the
collocated LMA and HA case in the document. The present approach uses
logically separate binding cache entries for the LMA and HA, which is
based on consensus. Some members of the WG strongly preferred the
approach of having the same binding cache entry for the LMA and HA -
however, the approach needed additional solutions to address race
conditions that arose from it and it did not gain consensus in the WG.
It should be noted that this was not raised by anyone in the WG during
WGLC of the document and the document as a whole had strong consensus
to be published.
The document has gone through various reviews and a successful

Reword "delay in the mobility signaling sent
may imply adverse situations"; maybe "delay in the receipt
mobility signaling may result in undesirable situations"?
In section 3.2, in the last bullet of list item 4:
Based on this consideration, the threat described in [RFC4832] is
worse as it affects also hosts that are using the LMA/HA as MIPv6 HA
and are not using PMIPv6.
Based on this consideration, the threat described in [RFC4832]
becomes more critical with simultaneous use of PMIPv6 and MIPv6,
as the threat affects also hosts that are using the LMA/HA through
