On Securing Dynamic Home Agent Address Discovery of On-Board Mobile Router in Mobile IPv6 Networks
In on-board mobile networks, users are connected to a local network that attaches to the Internet via a mobile router and a wireless link. The mobile router has a central role in servicing the mobile network, which makes the security of the mobile router crucial. The security of mobility management protocols used by mobile router, such as Mobile IPv6 has been studied thoroughly. However, the security of configuration protocols for mobile routers has received very little attention. In this paper, the authors focus on the security of Dynamic Home Agent Address Discovery (DHAAD) protocol, a protocol that allows mobile router to automatically configure its home agent.
