This document defines a rendezvous extension for the Host Identity
Protocol (HIP).  The rendezvous extension extends HIP and the HIP
Registration Extension for initiating communication between HIP nodes
via HIP rendezvous servers.  Rendezvous servers improve reachability
and operation when HIP nodes are multihomed or mobile.  This document
obsoletes RFC 5204.

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

This is now a Proposed Standard.
