RFC 8371              MN Identifier Types for MIPv6            July 2018

1.  Introduction

   The "Mobile Node Identifier Option for Mobile IPv6 (MIPv6)" [RFC4283]
   has proved to be a popular design tool for providing identifiers for
   mobile nodes during authentication procedures with Authentication,
   Authorization, and Accounting (AAA) protocols such as Diameter
   [RFC6733].  To date, only a single type of identifier has been
   specified, namely the Mobile Node (MN) NAI.  Other types of
   identifiers are in common use and are even referenced in RFC 4283.
   In this document, we propose adding some basic identifier types that
