Technical Summary This document specifies a new extension for use by Foreign Agents operating Mobile IP for IPv4. Currently, a foreign agent cannot supply status information without destroying the ability for a mobile node to verify authentication data supplied by the home agent. The new extension solves this problem by making a better place for the foreign agent to provide its status information to the mobile node. Working Group Summary This document was produced by the MIP4 WG. The WG has consensus to publish this document as a Proposed Standard. Protocol Quality This document was reviewed for the IESG by Margaret Wasserman.
