                Mobile IPv6 Management Information Base

Status of This Memo

   This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the
   Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for
   improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet
   Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state
   and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.

Abstract

   This memo defines a portion of the Management Information Base (MIB),
   the Mobile-IPv6 MIB, for use with network management protocols in the
   Internet community.  In particular, the Mobile-IPv6 MIB will be used
   to monitor and control the mobile node, home agent, and correspondent
   node functions of a Mobile IPv6 (MIPv6) entity.

1.  The Internet-Standard Management Framework

   For a detailed overview of the documents that describe the current
   Internet-Standard Management Framework, please refer to section 7 of
   RFC 3410 [RFC3410].

   Managed objects are accessed via a virtual information store, termed
   the Management Information Base or MIB.  MIB objects are generally
   accessed through the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

   Objects in the MIB are defined using the mechanisms defined in the
   Structure of Management Information (SMI).  This memo specifies a MIB
   module that is compliant to the SMIv2, which is described in STD 58,
   RFC 2578 [RFC2578], STD 58, RFC 2579 [RFC2579] and STD 58, RFC 2580
   [RFC2580].

2.  Overview

2.1.  The Mobile IPv6 Protocol Entities

   Mobile IPv6 (MIPv6) [RFC3775] specifies a protocol that allows nodes
   to remain reachable while moving around in the IPv6 Internet.  An
   entity that implements the MIPv6 protocol is a MIPv6 entity.  There
   are three types of entities envisaged by the MIPv6 protocol.

      mobile node (MN): A node that can change its point of attachment
      from one link to another, while still being reachable via its home
      address.

      correspondent node (CN): A peer node with which a mobile node is
      communicating.  The correspondent node may be either mobile or
      stationary.  (Note that a correspondent node does not necessarily
      require MIPv6 support.)

      home agent (HA): A router on a mobile node's home link with which
      the mobile node has registered its current care-of address.  While
      the mobile node is away from home, the home agent intercepts
      packets on the home link destined to the mobile node's home
      address, encapsulates them, and routes them to the mobile node's
      registered care-of address.

   This document defines a set of managed objects (MOs) that can be used
   to monitor and control MIPv6 entities.
