  Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) Key Option for Proxy Mobile IPv6

Abstract

   This specification defines a new mobility option for allowing the
   mobile access gateway and the local mobility anchor to negotiate
   Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) encapsulation mode and exchange
   the downlink and uplink GRE keys that are used for marking the
   downlink and uplink traffic that belong to a specific mobility
   session.  In addition, the same mobility option can be used to
   negotiate the GRE encapsulation mode without exchanging the GRE keys.
