Title : Optimized Packet Structure for HIP
Author(s) : P. Jokela et al.
Filename : draft-jokela-hip-packets-00.txt
Pages : 24

This memo describes alternative, optimized packet structures for the
Host Identity Payload and Host Layer Protocol (HIP). The packet
structures presented in this memo are intended replace original
packets in HIP. In addition, this memo describes a new packet, CER,
to transmit certificates.
The main objective in redefining HIP packet structures is to make the
packet structures simpler and more distinct, which makes the
implementation work easier, hopefully leading to more secure protocol
implementation. The new structures reduce the average packet size and
take advantage of other existing IPv6 protocols formats, including
alignments concerns, like the newly suggested Mobility header format
for Mobile IPv6.

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
