Technical Summary This document defines extensions to the current sockets API for the Host Identity Protocol (HIP). The extensions focus on the use of public-key based identifiers discovered via DNS resolution, but define also interfaces for manual bindings between HITs and locators. With the extensions, the application can also support more relaxed security models where the communication can be non-HIP based, according to local policies. The extensions in this document are experimental and provide basic tools for further experimentation with policies. Working Group Summary Nothing in the WG process worth mentioning. Document Quality Currently, there are no implementations of this specification but there are plans to implement it. Personnel Gonzalo Camarillo (Gonzalo.Camarillo@ericsson.com) is the document shepherd. Ralph Droms (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the responsible AD.
