Identity Driven Mobility Architecture
Source: NEC Laboratories
This paper describes an identity based mobility architecture, which relies on the Identity Management System for mobility decision and execution. This is achieved by clearly separating mobility into a two step procedure: decision and action. The decisions are outsourced on the Identity plane, while the action (moving) is carried out by protocol agnostic mobility architecture. It is becoming clear that Identity will play a major on the Future Internet. It provides a wealth of features, such as new semantics for the network, enhanced user centric capabilities, and a rich information environment with unrivalled levels of privacy, security.
