A way to solve the issue of site multihoming is to have a separate
site prefix for each connection of the site, and to derive as many
addresses for each hosts. This approach to multi-homing, which we
call Host-Centric IPv6 Multihoming, has the advantage of minimal
impact on the inter-domain routing fabric, since each site prefix can
be aggregated within the larger prefix of a specific provider;
however, it opens a number of issues, which we will discuss in this
memo, including the problem created by the interaction between
ingress filtering and multihoming, which we analyze in detail. We
then propose a set of specific solutions that enable host centric
multihoming, and we review how these solutions meet the requirements
of IPv6 site multihoming.

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.
