This chapter provides details related to the MIPv6 protocol. Hierarchical mobility management for MIPv6 is designed to reduce the amount of signaling between the MN, its CNs, and its HA. MIPv6, dual-stack MIPv6, network mobility (NEMO) basic support, and hierarchical mobile IPv6 allow a mobile node/mobile router (MN/MR) to manage its mobility using the BU message, which binds one CoA to one home address and associated mobile networks. NEMO basic support (RFC 3963), as noted, aims at providing continuous Internet connectivity to nodes located in an IPv6 mobile network. Several bootstrapping scenarios can be identified depending on the relationship between the network operator that authenticates an MN for granting network access service (by the ASA) and the service provider that authorizes MIPv6 service (the MSA). RFC 5447 describes MIPv6 bootstrapping using the Diameter Network Access Server to a home AAA (HAAA) server interface.
