Host Identity Protocol and Proxy Mobile IPv6: A Secure Global and Localized Mobility Management Scheme for Multihomed Mobile Nodes

The evolution of Internet and its hosts does not match anymore the current Internet architecture, designed when mobility, multi-homing and security were not considered, and based on IP addresses with the double role of host's identity and host's topological location. In this paper, the authors propose a secure global and localized mobility management scheme suitable for multi-homed Mobile Nodes (MNs) and based on Host Identity Protocol (HIP) and Proxy Mobile IPv6 (PMIPv6). It merges the new identifier/locator split architecture proposed by HIP, especially designed for providing security and multi-homing to MNs, with the micro-mobility management scheme of PMIPv6, which has been proposed for unmodified MNs with future Global Mobility Management (GMM) protocols.
