The Internet Key Exchange Protocol version 2 (IKEv2) is a protocol
for setting up Virtual Private Network (VPN) tunnels from a remote
location to a gateway so that the VPN client can access services in
the network behind the gateway.  This document defines an IKEv2
extension that allows an overloaded VPN gateway or a VPN gateway that
is being shut down for maintenance to redirect the VPN client to
attach to another gateway.  The proposed mechanism can also be used
in Mobile IPv6 to enable the home agent to redirect the mobile node
to another home agent.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
