Technical Summary The NEMOv4 specification allows a Mobile Router to register a whole network prefix. In the base specification, the Mobile Router must be pre-configured with a home prefix which is sent in the NEMO Registration Request. In this document, the possibility of allocating a prefix from the home network dynamically is allowed. The use of an all-zeroes value in the home prefix extension is proposed to indicate a request for dynamic assignment. Working Group Summary This short and simple draft encountered very little controversy in the working group. Document Quality The working group chairs indicate that the document is simple and the protocol well-specified. Personnel Document Shepherd is Pete McCann. The responsible Area Director is Jari Arkko. RFC Editor Note Please add "Updates: RFC 5177" to the header.
