This document specifies a protocol which allows nodes to remain
reachable while moving around in the IPv6 Internet.  Each mobile node
is always identified by its home address, regardless of its current
point of attachment to the Internet.  While situated away from its
home, a mobile node is also associated with a care-of address, which
provides information about the mobile node's current location.  IPv6
packets addressed to a mobile node's home address are transparently
routed to its care-of address.  The protocol enables IPv6 nodes to
cache the binding of a mobile node's home address with its care-of
address, and to then send any packets destined for the mobile node
directly to it at this care-of address.  To support this operation,
Mobile IPv6 defines a new IPv6 protocol and a new destination option.
All IPv6 nodes, whether mobile or stationary, can communicate with
mobile nodes.

This document is a product of the IP Routing for Wireless/Mobile Hosts
Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for
the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the
"Internet Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution
of this memo is unlimited.
