Mobile IPv4 Regional Registration
Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: IETF-Announce <email@example.com> Cc: Internet Architecture Board <firstname.lastname@example.org>, RFC Editor <email@example.com>, mip4 mailing list <firstname.lastname@example.org>, mip4 chair <email@example.com> Subject: Document Action: 'Mobile IPv4 Regional Registration' to Experimental RFC The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Mobile IPv4 Regional Registration ' <draft-ietf-mip4-reg-tunnel-05.txt> as an Experimental RFC This document is the product of the Mobility for IPv4 Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Jari Arkko and Mark Townsley. A URL of this Internet-Draft is: http://www.ietf.org/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-mip4-reg-tunnel-05.txt
Technical Summary The document describes a mechanism for reducing the number of round-trip registrations to a Mobile IP Home Agent with the introduction of a new network node, the Gateway Foreign Agent. Mobility within the domain of the Gateway Foreign Agent can be handled by local signaling. Working Group Summary The draft was originally produced and reviewed in the old Mobile IP working group but is now a product of the mip4 working group. Protocol Quality The document was reviewed for protocol quality by Pete McCann, co-chair of MIP4 WG. The specification has also been reviewed for the IESG by Margaret Wasserman and Jari Arkko. Note to RFC Editor Please insert the following new paragraph at the end of the security considerations section: "A co-operating malicious MN-HA pair can trick the GFA into setting up state for an incorrect MN home address. This would result in redirection of data of the node that actually owns that IP address to the malicious MN. Given that the forwarding happens based on the home address at the GFA, such an attack is scoped to the prefix of the HA, not that of the GFA. This type of attack, or its consequences, is not considered in this document."
