This specification defines a new mobility option for allowing the
mobile access gateway and the local mobility anchor to negotiate
Generic Routing Encapsulation (GRE) encapsulation mode and exchange
the downlink and uplink GRE keys that are used for marking the
downlink and uplink traffic that belong to a specific mobility
session.  In addition, the same mobility option can be used to
negotiate the GRE encapsulation mode without exchanging the GRE keys.

This document is a product of the Network-based Localized Mobility Management Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard Protocol.
