     Mobile IPv6 (MIPv6) Bootstrapping for the Integrated Scenario

Abstract

   Mobile IPv6 bootstrapping can be categorized into two primary
   scenarios: the split scenario and the integrated scenario.  In the
   split scenario, the mobile node's mobility service is authorized by a
   different service authorizer than the network access authorizer.  In
   the integrated scenario, the mobile node's mobility service is
   authorized by the same service authorizer as the network access
   service authorizer.  This document defines a method for home agent
   information discovery for the integrated scenario.

1.  Introduction and Scope

   The Mobile IPv6 protocol [RFC6275] requires the mobile node to have
   the following information:

   o  the Home Address (HoA),

   o  the home agent address, and

   o  the cryptographic materials for establishing an IPsec security
      association with the home agent.
