Technical Summary
 
Mobile IPv6 uses IPsec to protect signaling between the home agent and
the mobile node.  The mobile IPv6 base document defines the main
requirements these nodes must follow.  This document discusses these
requirements in more depth, illustrates the used packet formats,
describes suitable configuration procedures, and shows how
implementations can process the packets in the right order.

RFC Editor Note:

Delete the following sentence from the Introduction:

       Note that in addition to the use of ESP as specified here, it
       may also be possible to use Authentication Header (AH) [3], but
       for brevity this is not discussed in this specification.

Also, reference [3] should be moved from the "Normative References"
Section to the "Informative References" section.
