Enabling Mobile Networks Through Secure Naming
Source: University of St Andrews
Mobile Networks are increasingly important in land-, sea and air-based military scenarios. The interest in supporting network mobility for Internet Protocol (IP) networks has led to the NEtwork MObility (NEMO) protocol extensions being proposed for IP within the IETF. These extensions are based on the work already completed on host mobility for Mobile IP (MIP). The current work is based on the use of software agents: a Home Agent (HA) intercepts packets destined for the addresses in the mobile network and uses an IP-in-IP tunnel to send the packets to the Mobile Router (MR) located at a Care of Address (CoA), which terminates the tunnel.
