Mobile IPv6 deployments may want to bootstrap their operations
dynamically based on an interaction between the home agent and the
Diameter server of the Mobile Service Provider.  This document
specifies the interaction between a Mobile IP home agent and a
Diameter server.

This document defines the home agent to the Diameter server
communication when the mobile node authenticates using the Internet
Key Exchange v2 protocol with the Extensible Authentication Protocol
or using the Mobile IPv6 Authentication Protocol.  In addition to
authentication and authorization, the configuration of Mobile IPv6-
specific parameters and accounting is specified in this document.  

This document is a product of the Diameter Maintanence and Extensions Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet standards track
protocol for the Internet community,and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Internet
Official Protocol Standards (STD 1) for the standardization state and
status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
