Mobile IPv6 signaling between a Mobile Node (MN) and its Home Agent
(HA) is secured using IPsec.  The security association (SA) between
an MN and the HA is established using Internet Key Exchange Protocol
(IKE) version 1 or 2.  The security model specified for Mobile IPv6,
which relies on IKE/IPsec, requires interaction between the Mobile
IPv6 protocol component and the IKE/IPsec module of the IP stack.
This document proposes an alternate security framework for Mobile
IPv6 and Dual-Stack Mobile IPv6, which relies on Transport Layer
Security for establishing keying material and other bootstrapping
parameters required to protect Mobile IPv6 signaling and data traffic
between the MN and HA.  This document defines an Experimental Protocol 
for the Internet community.

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