Mobile IPv6 (RFC 3775) enables a mobile node to remain reachable
while it roams on the Internet.  However, the location and movement
of the mobile node can be revealed by the IP addresses used in
signaling or data packets.  In this document, we consider the Mobile
IPv6 location privacy problem described in RFC 4882, and propose
efficient and secure techniques to protect location privacy of the
mobile node.  This document is a product of the IP Mobility
Optimizations (MobOpts) Research Group.  This document defines 
an Experimental Protocol for the Internet community.
