       Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) Goals
                            for Mobile IPv6

Abstract

   In commercial and enterprise deployments, Mobile IPv6 can be a
   service offered by a Mobility Services Provider (MSP).  In this case,
   all protocol operations may need to be explicitly authorized and
   traced, requiring the interaction between Mobile IPv6 and the AAA
   infrastructure.  Integrating the Authentication, Authorization, and
   Accounting (AAA) infrastructure (e.g., Network Access Server and AAA
   server) also offers a solution component for Mobile IPv6
   bootstrapping.  This document describes various scenarios where a AAA
   interface for Mobile IPv6 is required.  Additionally, it lists design
   goals and requirements for such an interface.
