Providing an existing scalable authorization infrastructure for mobile
nodes is needed for IPv6-based mobility. SIM Authentication provides
a protocol for authenticating and authorizing services. It uses an
authorizing home domain defined by the Subscriber Identity Module

(ICMPv6) extension. It can leverage the existing SIM authorization
infrastructure for automatic bootstrapping of security association
between the mobile node and a service, where the service can be
e.g. authorized last-hop VPN setup for network access or Mobile IPv6
mobile-home security association setup.

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.
