Internet-Draft       Automotive NEMO RO Requirements       February 2008


1.  Introduction

   NEMO Basic Support [1] defines a protocol that provides IPv6 mobility
   support for entire moving networks, where all data packets go through
   the IPv6-in-IPv6 tunnel established between the Mobile Router (MR)
   and the Home Agent (HA).  As already pointed out in various documents
   ([5], [6] and [9]) this can have severe consequences on the
   communication performances, as it causes data packets to follow a
   path that can be very far from optimal and requires a double IPv6
   header for every packet exchanged with a Correspondent Node (CN) in
   the Internet.  Compared with a communication that uses the ideal
   packet routing and the normal IPv6 header size, these factors result
   in an increased delay and a reduced throughput, plus indirect
   consequences like increased packet fragmentation and overall less
   efficient usage of resources.

   Various projects and consortia involving the automotive industry are
   considering NEMO as part of their protocol stack for the provisioning
   of session continuity and global reachability.  Nevertheless, the
   lack of standardized Route Optimization (RO) techniques allowing data
   packets to be exchanged directly between vehicles or between vehicles
   and hosts in the Internet is regarded as an obstacle for the actual
   deployment of this protocol.  As the definition of a general NEMO
   Route Optimization technique is highly complex, it appears more
   reasonable to address specific deployment requirements and design
   more tailored, less complex schemes for Route Optimization.

   This document gathers requirements from two bodies that are committed
   in deploying vehicular communications including NEMO as part of their
   protocol stacks.

   o  The Car2Car Communication Consortium [10] is an industry
      consortium of car manufacturers and electronics suppliers
      operating in Europe.  Its mission is to establish an open European
      industry standard for vehicular communications based on wireless
      LAN technology.  Its approach consists in considering vehicles as
      a Vehicular ad hoc Network (VANET), where cars are equipped with
      short-range communication devices that operate at frequencies
      dedicated to safety and non-safety vehicular applications.

   o  ISO TC 204 WG 16 (CALM): ISO (International Standard Organization)
      runs a number of Technical Committees.  Members are nations and
      offical participants represent their country.  TC 204 is devoted
      to Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and comprises a number of
      Working Groups (16, but 12 still in operation).  ISO TC 204 WG 16
      is working on "Wide Area Communications Protocols and Interfaces"
      and was established in year 2000.  It is specifying a protocol
      architecture from the physical layer up to the application layer

      and designed for all ITS types of communications (vehicle-vehicle,
      vehicle-infrastructure, infrastrutcure-vehicle).  Known as the
      CALM architecture, the acronym was initially set to mean
      "Communications Air-interface, Long and Medium range" but was
      renamed in 2007 to "Communication Architecture for Land Mobile".

   The document is organized as follows: Section 2 defines terminology.
   Section 3 overviews the technical approaches adopted by the two
   automotive bodies to deploy NEMO.  Section 4 provides a non-
   exhaustive list of use cases of NEMO in automotive applications.
   Section 5 introduces the RO scenario and finally Section 6 lists the
   requirements for NEMO RO.


2.  Terminology

   The following terms used in this document are defined in the Network
   Mobility Support Terminology document [7]:

   o  Mobile Network

   o  Network Mobility (NEMO)

   o  Home Agent (HA)

   o  Home Address (HoA)

   o  Mobile Router (MR)

   o  Mobile Network Prefix (MNP)

   o  Mobile Network Node (MNN)

   o  Correspondent Router (CR)

   o  Correspondent Entity (CE)

   The following new terms are used in this document:

   o  On Board Unit (OBU): a device installed in vehicles, implementing
      the communication protocols and algorithm and equipped with at
      least 1) a short-range wireless network interface operating at
      dedicated frequencies and 2) a wireless or wired network interface
      where Application Units (AU) can be attached to.  With respect to
      the NEMO terminology, the OBU is the physical machine acting as
      MR, 1) is used as egress interface and 2) as ingress.





Baldessari, et al.       Expires August 21, 2008                [Page 4]


Internet-Draft       Automotive NEMO RO Requirements       February 2008


   o  Application Unit (AU): a portable or built-in device connected
      temporarily or permanently to the vehicle's OBU.  It is assumed
      that AUs support a standard TCP/IPv6 protocol stack.  Devices
      enhanced with Mobile IPv6, like hand-held user devices, also fall
      into the definition of Application Unit.  With respect to the NEMO
      terminology, an AU is a generic MNN.

   o  Road Side Unit (RSU): a device installed along roadsides
      implementing automotive communication protocols and algorithms.
      RSUs can either be isolated or connected to a network
      infrastructure.  In the latter case, RSUs are attachment points
      either acting themselves as IPv6 access routers or as bridges
      directly connected to an access router.

   o  In-vehicle network: the wireless or wired network placed in a
      vehicle and composed by (potentially) several AUs and one OBU.

   o  Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) Communication Mode: a generic
      communication mode in which data packets are exchanged between two
      vehicles, either directly or by means of multi-hop routing,
      without involving any node in the infrastructure.

   o  Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) Communication Mode: a generic
      communication mode in which data packets sent or received by a
      vehicle traverse a network infrastructure.

   o  Vehicle-to-Infrastructure-to-Vehicle (V2I2V) Communication Mode: a
      generic communication mode in which data packets are exchanged
      between two vehicles, by means of multi-hop routing involving a
      RSU connected or not to a network infrastructure.  From the point
      of view of the communication and routing protocol, this mode is
      equivalent to V2V, as RSUs act as relay in the same way OBUs do.
      Nevertheless introducing this definition is beneficial from a
      functional point of view.


3.  NEMO Automotive Deployments

3.1.  Car2Car Communication Consortium

   The Car2Car Communication Consortium (C2C-CC [10]) is an industry
   consortium of car manufacturers and electronics suppliers that
   focuses on the definition of an European standard for vehicular
   communication protocols.  The Consortium gathers results from
   research projects and aims at harmonizing their efforts.  For the
   standardization activity, the C2C-CC operates in cooperation with the
   newly established ETSI TC ITS (Technical Committee Intelligent
   Transportation System).

   The consortium's Manifesto [11] gives an overview of the system and
   protocol architecture, as well as of the applications on which the
   Consortium has agreed so far.  In essence, this document defines a
   C2C-C protocol stack that offers specialized functionalities and
   interfaces to (primarily) safety-oriented applications and relies as
   a communication technology on a modified version of IEEE 802.11p
   [14].  This protocol stack is placed beside a traditional TCP/IP
   stack, based on IP version 6, which is used mainly for non-safety
   applications or potentially by any application that is not subject to
   strict delivery requirements, including Internet-based applications.
   The interaction between these stacks is currently discussed and
   briefly overviewed in this document.

3.1.1.  System and Protocol Architecture

   The current draft reference architecture of the C2C communication
   system is shown in Figure 1.

   Vehicles are equipped with networks logically composed of an OBU and
   potentially multiple AUs.  An AU is typically a dedicated device that
   executes a single or a set of applications and utilizes the OBU
   communication capabilities.  An AU can be an integrated part of a
   vehicle and be permanently connected to an OBU.  It can also be a
   portable device such as laptop, PDA or game pad that can dynamically
   attach to (and detach from) an OBU.  AU and OBU are usually connected
   with wired connection, but the connection can also be wireless, such
   as Bluetooth.  The distinction between AU and OBU is logical, they
   can also reside in a single physical unit.

   Vehicles' OBUs and stationary units along the road, termed road-side



Baldessari, et al.       Expires August 21, 2008                [Page 7]


Internet-Draft       Automotive NEMO RO Requirements       February 2008


   units (RSUs), form a self-organizing network.  An OBU is at least
   equipped with a (short range) wireless communication device based on
   draft standard IEEE 802.11p [14] (adapted to European conditions and
   with specific C2C-C extensions) primarily dedicated for road safety,
   and potentially with other optional communication devices.  OBUs
   directly communicate if wireless connectivity exist among them.  In
   case of no direct connectivity, multi-hop communication is used,
   where data is forwarded from one OBU to another, until it reaches its
   destination.  For example in Figure 1, RSU and OBU1 have direct
   connectivity, whereas OBU2 is out of RSU radio coverage but can
   communicate with it through multi-hop routing.

   The primary role of an RSU is improvement of road safety.  RSUs have
   two possible configuration modes: as isolated nodes, they execute
   applications and/or extend the coverage of the ad hoc network
   implementing routing functionalities.  As attachment point connected
   to an infrastructure network, RSUs distribute information originated
   in the infrastructure and offer connectivity to the vehicles.  As
   result, for example, the latter configuration allows AUs registered
   with an OBU to communicate with any host located in the Internet,
   when at least one RSU connected to a network infrastructure is
   available.

   An OBU may also be equipped with alternative wireless technologies
   for both, safety and non-safety.  For example, an OBU may also
   communicate with Internet nodes or servers via public wireless LAN
   hot spots (PHS) operated individually or by wireless Internet service
   providers.  While RSUs for Internet access are typically set up with
   a controlled process by a C2C-C key stake holder, such as road
   administrators or other public authorities, public hot spots are
   usually set up in a less controlled environment.  These two types of
   infrastructure access, RSU and PHS, also correspond to different
   applications types.  Other communication technologies, such as wide
   coverage/cellular networks (e.g.  UMTS, GPRS) do not fall in the
   scope of the C2C-CC activity.  Nevertheless, the C2C-CC aims at
   guaranteeing future system extensibility and interoperability with
   different technologies.

   The protocol stack currently considered by the C2C-CC for OBUs is
   depicted in Figure 2.

      non-safety applications is in progress.  Expected communication
      range in line of sight is at least 500m.  This network interface
      is mandatory.

   o  IEEE 802.11a/b/g: this block represents MAC and PHY layers
      provided by one ore more IEEE 802.11a/b/g network interfaces.
      This network interface is optional but C2C-C Consortium encourages
      its installation.

   o  C2C-CC Network: this block represents the network layer protocol
      currently defined by the C2C-CC.  The protocol provides secure ad
      hoc routing and forwarding, as well as addressing, error handling,
      packet sequencing, congestion control and information
      dissemination.  The specification of this protocol is currently
      under discussion.  Only the C2C-CC Network protocol can access the
      Modified IEEE 802.11p network interface.  The C2C-CC Network
      protocol can also access the IEEE 802.11a/b/g interface.  The
      C2C-CC Network protocol offers an interface to the IPv6 protocol.
      This interface allows IPv6 headers and payload to be encapsulated
      into C2C-CC Network datagrams and sent over the Modified IEEE
      802.11p or IEEE 802.11a/b/g network interface.  The specification
      of this interface is currently under discussion.  A primary goal

      of the C2C-CC Network layer is to provide geographic routing and
      addressing functionalities for cooperative safety applications.
      Through the mentioned interface to the IPv6 protocol, these
      functionalities are also available for IP-based applications.

   o  C2C-CC Transport: this block represents the transport layer
      protocol that is currently being defined by the C2C-CC.  This
      protocol provides a selected set of traditional transport layer
      functionalities (e.g. application data multiplexing/
      demultiplexing, connection establishment, reliability etc.).  The
      specification of this protocol is currently under discussion.

   o  C2C-CC Applications: this block represents the application layer
      protocol currently defined by the C2C-CC and concerns Active
      Safety and Traffic Efficiency Applications.

3.1.2.  IPv6 Deployment

   As described in Section 3.1.1, the C2C-CC includes IPv6 as mandatory
   part of its specified protocol architecture.  Currently, three
   methods are discussed for transmission of IPv6 headers and their
   payload:

   o  On the Modified IEEE 802.11p interface via the C2C-CC Network
      layer: in this method, IPv6 headers are encapsulated into C2C-CC
      Network headers and sent using dedicated frequencies for inter-
      vehicle communications.  Since the C2C-CC Network layer provides
      ad hoc routing, from the IPv6 layer perspective other nodes (OBUs
      and RSU) appear as attached to the same link.  The broadcast
      domain used for IPv6 multicast traffic is selected by the C2C-CC
      Network layer on a geographical basis.  The C2C-CC Network layer
      presents Ethernet-like characteristics, so that [4] can be
      applied.

   o  On the IEEE 802.11a/b/g interface via the C2C-CC Network layer: in
      this method, IPv6 headers are encapsulated into C2C-CC Network
      headers and sent using license-free ISM frequency bands (wireless
      LAN).  Except the network interface, this method is equivalent to
      the previous one.

   o  On the IEEE 802.11a/b/g interface directly: in this method, IPv6
      headers are sent directly to the wireless LAN interface.

   As a result, a C2C-CC OBU has at least two IPv6 network interfaces, a
   real one (IEEE 802.11a/b/g) and a virtual one (tunnel over C2C-CC
   Network layer).  The following informational list briefly summarizes
   some currently discussed design concepts:




Baldessari, et al.       Expires August 21, 2008               [Page 10]


Internet-Draft       Automotive NEMO RO Requirements       February 2008


   o  in order to avoid address resolution procedures, vehicles only use
      IPv6 addresses with as host part an EUI-64 identifier derived from
      the MAC address.  Privacy issues described in [3] are strongly
      alleviated through the use of temporary, changing MAC addresses,
      which are assigned in a set to every vehicle;

   o  according to the current availability of infrastructure
      connectivity, OBUs can use (at least) 2 types of globally routable
      IPv6 addresses: an IPv6 address configured using standard IPv6
      stateless address configuration from Router Advertisements sent by
      RSUs connected to a network infrastructure and an IPv6 address
      configured from a prefix permanently allocated to the vehicle and
      delegated to the vehicle from a home network.  The former globally
      routable IPv6 address is used as the NEMO Care-of Address (CoA)
      and the latter as the NEMO Home Address (HoA).  In addition, a
      self-generated IPv6 address with as prefix part a pre-defined IPv6
      prefix (either reserved for C2C-CC communications or a general
      purpose one) may be used for ad-hoc communications with other
      OBUs;

   o  RSUs can either act as IPv6 Access Routers or as bridges connected
      to external IPv6 Access Routers.  Different Access Routers are
      responsible for announcing different network prefixes with global
      validity.  As a consequence, when roaming between different Access
      Routers, vehicles experience layer 3 handovers.

   When infrastructure access via RSUs is available, IPv6 support in
   C2C-CC systems is enhanced with Mobility Support.  As a vehicle
   includes a set of attached devices (AUs), NEMO Basic Support is the
   default protocol selected by the C2C-CC for maintaining ongoing
   sessions during L3 handovers.

3.1.3.  Scope of NEMO

   The C2C-CC is defining a protocol stack for both safety and non-
   safety applications.  These two application categories put different
   requirements on the protocol stack.  Therefore the C2C-CC defined a
   double protocol stack which is depicted in Figure 2.  Applications
   that are subject to safety requirements use the left part, whereas
   applications that do not require these particular features use the
   right part of the stack.  The left part of the stack provides
   functionalities like geographic packet distribution, information
   dissemination according to relevance, information aggregation using
   cross-layer analysis, security and plausibility checks at different
   protocol layers.  The right part of the stack is designed for non-
   safety applications and for non-critical applications, which can
   still support safety.

Internet-Draft       Automotive NEMO RO Requirements       February 2008


   The deployment of NEMO in C2C-CC systems is achieved through the
   right part of the stack depicted in Figure 2 and targets non-safety
   applications.  Nevertheless, applications using NEMO might indirectly
   support safety applications.  Example use cases are listed in
   Section 4.

3.2.  ISO TC204 WG 16 (CALM)

   ISO TC 204 WG 16 (CALM) is working on "Wide Area Communications
   Protocols and Interfaces" and was established in year 2000.  The WG
   is itself devided into a number of sub-groups.

   The purpose of this WG is specifying a protocol architecture from the
   physical layer up to the application layer and designed for all ITS
   types of communications. media.

   The CALM handbook [12] gives an overview of the system and protocol
   architecture.  In essence, this document defines a protocol stack
   that offers specialized functionalities and interfaces to safety and
   non-safety applications and doesn't rely on a specific communication
   technology.  This protocol stack allows for both IP and non-IP types
   of communications.  The IP version 6 is the version considered for IP
   types of flows.

3.2.1.  System and Protocol Architecture

   The current draft reference CALM architecture [13] is shown in
   Figure 3.

   Vehicles are equipped with networks logically composed of an
   (potentially multiple) OBU(s) and potentially multiple AUs.  An AU is
   typically a dedicated device that executes a single or a set of
   applications and utilizes the OBU communication capabilities.  An AU
   can be an integrated part of a vehicle and be permanently connected
   to an OBU.  It can also be a portable device such as laptop, PDA or
   game pad that can dynamically attach to (and detach from) an OBU.  AU
   and OBU are usually connected with wired connection, but the
   connection can also be wireless, such as Bluetooth.  The distinction
   between AU and OBU is logical, they can also reside in a single
   physical unit.




Baldessari, et al.       Expires August 21, 2008               [Page 13]


Internet-Draft       Automotive NEMO RO Requirements       February 2008


   Vehicles' OBUs and stationary units along the road, termed road-side
   units (RSUs), form a self-organizing network.  An OBU is equipped
   with a number of short range, medium range and long range wireless
   communication devices, typically IEEE 802.11p [14], IEEE 802.11a/b/g
   or 3G. OBUs can communicate with one another, either directly if
   wireless connectivity exist among them, via multi-hop communication
   where data is forwarded from one OBU to another, until it reaches its
   destination, through the roadside infrastrucure, or through the
   Internet.  For example in Figure 3, RSU and OBU1 have direct
   connectivity, whereas OBU2 is out of RSU radio coverage but can
   communicate with it through multi-hop routing or through the
   Internet.

   The primary role of an RSU is improvement of road safety and road
   traffic.  RSUs have two possible configuration modes: as isolated
   nodes, they execute applications and/or extend the coverage of the ad
   hoc network implementing routing functionalities.  As attachment
   point connected to an infrastructure network, RSUs distribute
   information originated in the infrastructure and offer connectivity
   to the vehicles.  As result, for example, the latter configuration
   allows AUs registered with an OBU to communicate with any host
   located in the Internet, when at least one RSU connected to a network
   infrastructure is available.

   An OBU is equipped with alternative wireless technologies for both
   safety and non-safety applications.  For example, an OBU may also
   communicate with Internet nodes or servers via public wireless LAN
   hot spots (PHS) or wide coverage/cellular networks (e.g.  UMTS, GPRS)
   operated individually or by wireless Internet service providers.
   While RSUs for Internet access are typically set up with a controlled
   process by a CALM key stake holder, such as road administrators or
   other public authorities, public hot spots are usually set up in a
   less controlled environment.  These two types of infrastructure
   access, RSU and PHS, also correspond to different applications types.
   Other communication technology not currently available or de facto
   considered in the CALM architecture may be added at will.

   CALM allows all communication modes:

   o  in Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) mode, data packets are exchanged
      directly between OBUs, either via multi-hop or not, without
      involving any RSU;

   o  in Vehicle-to-Infrastructure mode (V2I), an OBU exchanges data
      packets through a RSU with an arbitrary node connected to the
      infrastructure (potentially another vehicle not attached to the
      same RSU).

   o  in Vehicle-to-Infrastructure-to-Vehicle mode (V2I2V), an OBU
      exchanges data packets with another OBU through an arbitrary node
      in the infrastructure or the Internet;

   o  in Vehicle-to-Internet mode (Internet), an OBU exchanges data
      packets with an an arbitrary node in the Internet.

3.2.2.  IPv6 Deployment

   The CALM architecture includes IPv6 as mandatory part of its
   specified protocol architecture.

   The following informational list briefly summarizes currently
   discussed design concepts:

   o  in order to avoid address resolution procedures, vehicles use only
      IPv6 addresses with as host part an EUI-64 identifier derived from
      the MAC address.  Privacy issues described in [3] are strongly
      alleviated through the use of temporary, changing MAC addresses,
      which are assigned in a set to every vehicle (as part of their
      assigned "pseudonyms");

   o  according to the current availability of infrastructure
      connectivity, OBUs can use (at least) 2 types of globally routable
      IPv6 addresses: an IPv6 address configured using standard IPv6
      stateless address configuration from Router Advertisements sent by

      purpose one) may be used for ad-hoc communications with other
      OBUs;

      to external IPv6 Access Routers.  Different Access Routers are

Internet-Draft       Automotive NEMO RO Requirements       February 2008


3.2.3.  Scope of NEMO

   In all the methods for use of IPv6 in the CALM architecture as
   described above, the IPv6 layer is meant to be enhanced with Mobility
   Support.  As a vehicle includes a set of attached devices (AUs), NEMO
   Basic Support is the default protocol selected by ISO for maintaining
   ongoing sessions during L3 handovers.


4.  Example Use Cases

   In this section, the main use cases are listed that have been
   identified by the C2C-CC and ISO for usage of NEMO: notification
   services, peer-to-peer applications, upload/download services,
   navigation services, multimedia applications.

4.1.  Notification Services

   A generic notification service delivers information to subscribers by
   means of the Internet.  After subscribing the service with a
   provider, a user is notified when updates are available.  Example
   services are weather, traffic or news reports, as well as commercial
   and technical information from the car producer or other companies.

   In this use case, the HoA or a pre-defined address belonging to the
   MNP is registered to the service provider.  The service provider
   sends the updates to this address which does not change while the
   vehicle changes point of attachment.

4.2.  Peer-to-peer Applications

   A generic peer-to-peer application exchanges data directly between
   vehicles, without contacting any application server.  Data traffic
   goes through a network infrastructure (V2I or V2I2V) or directly
   between cars when the infrastructure is not available (V2V).  Example
   applications are vehicle-to-vehicle instant messaging (chat) and off-
   line messaging (peer-to-peer email), vehicle-to-vehicle voice over IP
   and file exchange.

   The C2C-CC also considers this use case when vehicles are isolated
   from the infrastructure, i.e.  V2V mode.  As the NEMO protocol is not
   involved when infrastructure access is not available, this particular
   case is out of scope of this document.

4.3.  Upload and Download Services

   A generic upload/download service via the Internet consists in simple
   file exchange procedures with servers located in the Internet.  The

Internet-Draft       Automotive NEMO RO Requirements       February 2008


   service is able to resume after a loss of connectivity.

4.4.  Vehicles Monitoring

   Vehicles monitoring services allow car manufacturers, car garages and
   other trusted parties to remotely monitor vehicle statistics.  Data
   is collected by the OBU and sent to the service center via the
   Internet.

   As an example, car manufacturers or garages offering this service
   could deploy NEMO Home Agents to serve thousands of cars.

4.5.  Infortainment Applications

   TBD by ISO CALM

4.6.  Navigation Services

   TBD by ISO CALM


5.  NEMO Route Optimization Scenarios

   In this section, operational characteristics of automotive
   deployments of NEMO are described that are relevant for the design of
   Route Optimization techniques.  In particular a restriction of the
   general solution space for RO and motivations for RO requirements
   described in Section 6 are provided.

   With respect to the classification of NEMO Route Optimization
   scenarios described in [6], the non-nested NEMO RO case (Section 3.1)
   is considered as the most important for the automotive deployment.
   However, MIPv6-enabled AUs (i.e.  VMNs) and nested Network Mobility
   are allowed in ISO CALM but not specifically addressed.

   The requirements defined in this document refer to RO between MR and
   CE (Correspondent Entity).  According to the automotive use cases,
   the CE can be:

   1.  Another vehicle, i.e. another automotive MR.

   2.  A dedicated node (host or router) installed on the roadside (2a)
       or in the Internet (2b) for automotive applications.

   3.  An arbitrary node in the Internet.

   In cases 1 and 2, the CE is a newly deployed entity.  Whereas the
   communicating peers in case 1 are obvious, case 2 includes for

Internet-Draft       Automotive NEMO RO Requirements       February 2008


   example information points installed along the road, control centers,
   notification points and infotainment service providers located in the
   infrastructure.

   The suboptimal routing due to the lack of RO has the most negative
   impact when the topological distance between MR and CE is
   considerably smaller than between MR and HA.  This is highly likely
   to occour in case 1 (e.g. two neighboring vehicles communicating with
   each others) and case 2a (e.g. vehicles receiving updates from
   information points installed on the roadside).  For these two cases,
   the suboptimal routing might represent a limiting factor for the
   system performance and, in turn, a limiting factor for the deployment
   of NEMO.

   In cases 2b and 3, the impact of suboptimal routing depends on the
   arbitrary CE topological position.  At this point of time no
   particular assumption can be made on the topological position of CE
   in case 2b and, obviously, in case 3.  Consequently, the case 1 and
   2a deserve a higher priority with respect to the definition of a NEMO
   RO solution for automotive applications.

   Any available information about the geographical or topological
   position of the CE is relevant for the MR in order to apply RO.  In
   this respect, external information might be used to define policy
   rules specifying whether or not RO should be enabled with a
   particular pre-defined CE, which is known in advanced to the MR.


6.  NEMO Route Optimization Requirements

   Table Figure 5 summarizes which requirement applies to both C2C-CC
   and ISO, or only one of these.

6.1.  Req 1 - Separability

   A RO technique, including its establishment procedure, MUST have the
   ability to be enabled on a per-flow basis according to pre-defined
   policies.  Policies criteria for the switching to RO MUST at least
   include the end points' addresses and the MNP for which RO is to be
   established.  Policies MAY change dynamically.

   In some scenarios it might not be beneficial to activate RO due to
   the intermittent connectivity.  Based on external information, a
   management instance of the MR can dynamically specify policies for RO
   establishment of a particular IPv6 flow.  Furthermore, policies can
   prevent unnecessary or unwanted RO sessions to take place (e.g.  DNS
   queries, location privacy protection etc.).  In case of MRs serving
   multiple MNPs (e.g. served by different HAs or MNPs that vary only in

Internet-Draft       Automotive NEMO RO Requirements       February 2008


   the length), the policies allow for specifying for which MNP RO
   should be established (i.e. prefix including length).

6.2.  Req 2 - RO Security

   As a minimum security feature, an RO technique MUST prevent off-path
   malicious nodes to claim false MNP ownership.  Further security
   requirements are TBD.

   As a minimum requirement, the security level of a RO scheme should be
   comparable with today's Internet.

6.3.  Req 3 - Privacy Protection

   A RO technique MUST NOT allow off-path malicious nodes to match the
   MR's CoA with its MNP or HoA.

   In other words, the RO technique must not expose the MNP/HoA to nodes
   other than the CE and, indirectly, the nodes on the path between the
   MR and the CE.

6.4.  Req 4 - Multihoming

   A RO technique MUST allow a MR to be simultaneously connected to
   multiple access networks, having multiple prefixes and Care-Of
   Addresses in a MONAMI6 context, and be served by multiple HAs.

   Adopting the classification of [8], the automotive NEMO deployment
   includes at least the cases (1,n,n), (n,1,1) and (n,n,n).  Case
   (1,n,n) takes place when a single MR is installed in the vehicle's
   OBU but different MNPs/HAs are used for different purposes (e.g.
   vehicle monitoring, traffic information, infotainment) or to achieve
   better fault tolerance.  Cases (n,1,1) and (n,n,n) take place when
   the vehicle's connectivity is enhanced by installing additional NEMO
   MRs in a separated unit in a later stage.  A RO technique must not
   prevent any of these three configurations from working properly.

6.5.  Req 5 - Efficient Signaling

   A RO technique MUST be capable of efficient signaling.  The number of
   per-flow signaling messages for the establishment of RO SHOULD be
   smaller than TBD and the number of per-flow signaling messages upon a
   layer 3 handover should be smaller than TBD.

6.6.  Req 6 - Switching HA

   A RO technique MUST allow a MR to switch from one HA to another one
   topologically distant from the first one.
