This document captures the issues that may arise in the deployment of
IPv6 networks when they support Mobile IPv6 and firewalls.  The
issues are not only applicable to firewalls protecting enterprise
networks, but are also applicable in 3G mobile networks such as
General Packet Radio Service / Universal Mobile Telecommunications
System (GPRS/UMTS) and CDMA2000 networks.

The goal of this document is to highlight the issues with firewalls
and Mobile IPv6 and act as an enabler for further discussion.  Issues
identified here can be solved by developing appropriate solutions.  This 
memo provides information for the Internet community.

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