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 Network Mobility (NEMO) support MIB, for use with network
   management protocols in the Internet community.  In particular, the
   NEMO MIB will be used to monitor and control a Mobile IPv6 node with
   NEMO functionality.

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 and NEMO Entities

   Mobile IPv6 (MIPv6) [RFC3775] specifies a protocol that allows nodes
   to remain reachable while moving around in the IPv6 Internet.  The
   Network Mobility (NEMO) Basic Support Protocol [RFC3963] is an
   extension to the Mobile IPv6 protocol that facilitates the movement
   of an entire network.  The goals of Network Mobility support and
   related terminology are discussed in [RFC4886] and [RFC4885],
   respectively.

   Typically, mobile routers implement NEMO functionality for achieving
   network mobility.  However, a mobile router may also function as a
   mobile node.  In the context of this document, an entity that
   implements the NEMO protocol is a NEMO entity.

RFC 5488            NEMO Management Information Base          April 2009

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