This document defines new attributes to facilitate Proxy Mobile IPv6
operations using the RADIUS infrastructure.  The protocol defined in
this document uses RADIUS-based interfaces of the mobile access
gateway and the local mobility anchor with the AAA server for
authentication, authorization, and policy functions.  The RADIUS
interactions between the mobile access gateway and the RADIUS-based
AAA server take place when the mobile node (MN) attaches,
authenticates, and authorizes to a Proxy Mobile IPv6 domain.
Furthermore, this document defines the RADIUS-based interface between
the local mobility anchor and the AAA RADIUS server for authorizing
received Proxy Binding Update messages for the mobile node's mobility
session.  In addition to the interactions related to mobility session
setup, this document defines the baseline for the mobile access
gateway and the local mobility anchor generated accounting.  

This document is a product of the Network-Based Mobility 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.
