Mobile IPv6 has been developed to enable mobility in IP networks for mobile terminals. Mobile IPv6 security standardization is still ongoing and security issues are one of the primary considerations that need to be address. In this paper, the authors proposed a mechanism that if will be adopted; MIPv6 will have a better security. This proposed new security mechanism for Mobile IPv6 which to make the RR method more secure is to use IPSec ESP in tunnel mode between the MN and the HA when sending the messages 1(MN to the CN) and 3 (CoA to the CN) and CGA method should be used in parallel with the RR to provide better security.
