This document specifies a mechanism which enhances Proxy Mobile IPv6
protocol signaling to support the creation of a transient binding
cache entry which is used to optimize the performance of dual radio
handover, as well as single radio handover.
Working Group Summary
This is a product of the MIPSHOP WG. See below for more information.
The document has been discussed on the MIPSHOP WG mailing list
and was subject to considerable debate. The core of the debate
centered around the need for host support for this mechanism.
Document Shepherd is Vijay Devarapalli, and the responsible
Area Director is Jari Arkko.
RFC Editor Note
Please add the following text to the end of the first paragraph
in the Security Considerations section:
No new security considerations are introduced in addition to
those in RFC 5213. Thus, the security considerations described
throughout [RFC5213] apply here as well.
Also, change this:
Where no support from the link layer exists and no such
indication can be provided to the nMAG by the network, the host
and the network may need to inform each other about the intended
movement. The method by which this is accomplished is outside the
scope of this specification.
Where no support from the link layer exists and no such indication can
be provided to the nMAG by the network, the nMAG MUST assume that the
host is incapable of this mode of operation, and employ standard
behavior as specified in RFC 5213. In other words, nMAG initiates
a regular RFC5213 handover.
