In commercial and enterprise deployments, Mobile IPv6 can be a service
offered by a Mobility Services Provider (MSP).  In this case, all
protocol operations may need to be explicitly authorized and traced,
requiring the interaction between Mobile IPv6 and the AAA
infrastructure.  Integrating the Authentication, Authorization, and
Accounting (AAA) infrastructure (e.g., Network Access Server and AAA
server) also offers a solution component for Mobile IPv6
bootstrapping.  This document describes various scenarios where a AAA
interface for Mobile IPv6 is required.  Additionally, it lists design
goals and requirements for such an interface.  This memo provides 
information for the Internet community.

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