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 : Mobile IPv4 Challenge/Response Extensions (revised)

Mobile IP, as originally specified, defines an authentication
extension (the Mobile-Foreign Authentication extension) by
which a mobile node can authenticate itself to a foreign agent.
Unfortunately, that extension does not provide the foreign agent
any direct guarantee that the protocol is protected from replays,
and does not allow for the use of CHAP for authenticating portable
computer devices. In this specification, we define extensions for
the Mobile IP Agent Advertisements and the Registration Request
that allow a foreign agent to use a challenge/response mechanism to
authenticate the mobile node. This document obsoletes RFC 3012.

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
