This document describes data structures and API support for Mobile
IPv6 as an extension to the Advanced Socket API for IPv6.

Just as the Advanced Sockets API for IPv6 gives access to various
extension headers and the ICMPv6 protocol, this document specifies
the same level of access for Mobile IPv6 components.  It specifies a
mechanism for applications to retrieve and set information for
Mobility Header messages, Home Address destination options, and
Routing Header Type 2 extension headers.  It also specifies the
common data structures and definitions that might be used by certain
advanced Mobile IPv6 socket applications.  This memo provides information 
for the Internet community.

This document is a product of the Mobility for IPv6
Working Group of the IETF.
