Title : Mobility Support in IPv6
Author(s) : D. Johnson, C. Perkins
Filename : draft-ietf-mobileip-ipv6-13.txt
Pages : 110

This document specifies the operation of mobile computers using IPv6.
Each mobile node is always identified by its home address, regardless
of its current point of attachment to the Internet. While situated
away from its home, a mobile node is also associated with a care-of
address, which provides information about the mobile node's current
location. IPv6 packets addressed to a mobile node's home address are
transparently routed to its care-of address. The protocol enables
IPv6 nodes to cache the binding of a mobile node's home address with
its care-of address, and to then send any packets destined for the
mobile node directly to it at this care-of address. To support this
operation, Mobile IPv6 defines four new IPv6 destination options,
including one that MUST be supported in packets received by any node,
whether mobile or stationary.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
