LIN6 is a protocol supporting mobility and multi-homing in IPv6. LIN6
introduces the node id, not the interface id, for each node. Each node
can be identified by its node id no matter where the node is connected
and no matter how many interfaces the node has. In the IPv6 layer,
64-bit node id called LIN6 ID is used while 128-bit node-id called LIN6
generalized ID is used above the Transport layer. TCP connections and
security associations can be preserved even if the node moves to another
subnet or the node changes the using interface in a multi-homing
environment without modifying TCP or IPsec. In comparison with Mobile
IPv6, LIN6 has several advantages in terms of header overhead and fault

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
