This document specifies two extensions to the Host Identity Protocol
(HIP) to implement multi-hop routing.  The first extension allows 
implementing source routing in HIP.  That is, a node sending a HIP packet 
can define a set of nodes that the HIP packet should traverse.  The second 
extension allows a HIP packet to carry and record the list of nodes that 
forwarded it.  This document defines an Experimental Protocol for the 
Internet community.

This document is a product of the Host Identity Protocol Working Group of the IETF.

EXPERIMENTAL: This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the
