[mobile-ip] I-D ACTION:draft-ietf-mobileip-mipv6-scrty-reqts-01.txt
A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the IP Routing for Wireless/Mobile Hosts Working Group of the IETF.
Title : Threat Models introduced by Mobile IPv6 and
Requirements for Security in Mobile IPv6
Author(s) : A. Mankin et al.
Filename : draft-ietf-mobileip-mipv6-scrty-reqts-01.txt
Pages : 29
Date : 02-Oct-01
The IESG returned the Mobile IPv6 (MIPv6) draft to the working group
due to concerns about the security and scalability of binding updates
(BUs) sent to correspondent nodes and the associated IPsec processing
that is specified in the draft. Since that time discussions have
continued to attempt to define what is really needed to make binding
updates secure while taking into consideration the aspect of
scalability as well as the fact that IPsec may not be the most
suitable security mechanism for securing BUs between MNs and CNs.

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
