The Host Identity Protocol implements the identifier locator
separation by introduing a new name space and a new layer to the IP
stack. The new structure insulates the transport layer protocols

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this

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
