A Mobile IPv6 node requires a Home Agent address, a home address, and
IPsec security associations with its Home Agent before it can start
utilizing Mobile IPv6 service.  RFC 3775 requires that some or all of
these are statically configured.  This document defines how a Mobile
IPv6 node can bootstrap this information from non-topological
information and security credentials pre-configured on the Mobile
Node.  The solution defined in this document solves the split
scenario described in the Mobile IPv6 bootstrapping problem statement
in RFC 4640.  The split scenario refers to the case where the Mobile
Node's mobility service is authorized by a different service provider
than basic network access.  The solution described in this document
is also generically applicable to any bootstrapping case, since other
scenarios are more specific realizations of the split scenario.  

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

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.
