The IESG has identified several security issues with the
current Mobile IPv6 specification [MIPv6]. A subsequent effort
[MIPv6SecReq] details the security threats introduced by
MIPv6. Two major issues are (1) how to obtain a security
association between an arbitrary MN and CN such that the
binding update (BU) is secure, and, assuming such a mechanism
is in place, (2) how to secure the individual BU messages.

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
