Title : GSM SIM Authentication and Key Generation for Mobile
Author(s) : H. Haverinen
Filename : draft-haverinen-mobileip-gsmsim-02.txt
Pages : 20
Date : 11-Apr-01
This document specifies a mechanism for Mobile IP network access
authentication and key distribution using the GSM Subscriber
Identity Module (SIM). The mechanism uses new subtypes of the
generalized key distribution extensions  for Mobile IP
Registration Request and Registration Reply. After the registration
keys have been generated, the default Mobile IP authentication with
these keys can be used (MD5 in prefix + suffix mode). The keys can
be used for several subsequent registrations. However, there are
lifetimes for the keys and before the lifetimes expire, new keys can
be generated with the same procedure.

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.
