Title : Strong Identity Multihoming using 128 bit Identifiers (SIM/CBID128)
Author(s) : E. Nordmark
Filename : draft-nordmark-multi6-sim-01.txt
Pages : 25

This document contains a rough outline of a potential solution to
IPv6 multihoming in order to stimulate discussion.
This proposed solution uses 126 bit identifiers which are hashes of
public keys (know as Cryptographically-based Identifiers) which are
created in an autonomous fashion by every node. When there is a need
to verify whether a new locator should be used with an identifier
than a public-key based challenge-response is used.
The proposal allows locator rewriting by (border) routers, and
ensures that the upper layer protocols can operate unmodified in a
multihomed setting using the stable identifiers.

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
