When a mobile node moves between two foreign networks, it has to be
re-authenticated.  If the home network has both multiple
Authentication Authorization and Accounting (AAA) servers and Home
Agents (HAs) in use, the Home AAA server may not have sufficient
information to process the re-authentication correctly (i.e., to
ensure that the same HA continues to be used).  This document defines
a Mobile IP extension that carries identities for the Home AAA and HA
servers in the form of Network Access Identifiers (NAIs).  The
extension allows a Home Agent to pass its identity (and that of the
Home AAA server) to the mobile node, which can then pass it on to the
local AAA server when changing its point of attachment.  This
extension may also be used in other situations requiring
communication of a NAI between Mobile IP nodes.

This document is a product of the Mobility for IPv4 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
