The Mobile Node Identifier Option for MIPv6 [RFC4283] has proved to
be a popular design tool for providing identifiers for mobile nodes
during authentication procedures with AAA protocols such as Diameter
[RFC3588]. To date, only a single type of identifier has been
specified, namely the MN NAI. Other types of identifiers are in
common use, and even referenced in RFC 4283. This document proposes
adding some basic types that are defined in various telecommunications
standards, including types for IMSI, P-TMSI, IMEI, and GUTI.
Also includes identifiers that are tied to the physical elements of the
device (RFID, MAC address etc.)
