Mobile IPv6 is a network-layer solution to node mobility for the IPv6 Internet. It allows a mobile node to maintain a continuous connection from one access point to another. MIPv6 introduces several security vulnerabilities such as the authentication and authorization of Binding Updates (BUs) during the home agent registration process. This paper deals with securing the standard mobile IPv6 handover scheme by adding a cryptography procedure for authenticating the binding updates sent by mobile nodes during the home agent registration process.
