A method is proposed for providing key information for use between
a mobile node and correspondent node, to be used for the purpose of
authenticating Mobile IPv6 Binding Updates. The key distribution
is secure except against man-in-the-middle attacks, when the
attacker resides along the routing path between the correspondent
node and the mobile node's home agent. The key can be used for
authenticating subsequent Binding Updates from the same mobile node,
substantially reducing the number of key establishment cycles needed
for maintaining efficient communication paths between the mobile node
and correspondent node.

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.
