Hi Charlie,

In the previous discussions on this issue (July 2008), we had almost
concluded on the following text.

   A mobile node detects that it has returned to its home link through
   the movement detection algorithm in use (Section 11.5.1), when the
   mobile node detects that its home subnet prefix is again on-link.
   To be able to send and receive packets using its home address from
   the home link, the mobile node MUST send a Binding Update to its
   home agent to instruct its home agent to no longer intercept or
   tunnel packets for it. Until the mobile node sends a de-registration
   Binding Update, it will not be able to send and receive packets
   using its home address from the home link. The home agent will
   continue to intercept all packets sent to the mobile's home address
   and tunnel to the previously registered care-of address.

Re: [MEXT] Issue #17: Multi-homed mobile node can cause routing loop between home agents

Hi Vijay, Charlie and all,

I tend to agree with Raj that this does not seem a MIP6-specific issue or at least it does not require any
MIP6-specific solution.

While the way of creating the routing loop is specific to MIP6, in the sense that MIP6 signaling is used, the
outcome of the attack may be just a flood of packets to the HA. How is this flooding of packets different from
any other DoS/flooding? Does the HA anyway be equipped to drop packets in case of packets floods?

The HA may just drop packets if they exceed a ceratin threshold and optionally delete the binding. This
seems to be enough in my view considering that there is anyway a long trust relationship between the
attacker (i.e. the MN) and the HA.

What do you think?

Gerardo

[MEXT] I-D Action:draft-ietf-mip6-radius-06.txt

A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Mobility EXTensions for IPv6 Working Group of the IETF.

	Title           : RADIUS Mobile IPv6 Support
	Author(s)       : A. Lior, et al.
	Filename        : draft-ietf-mip6-radius-06.txt
	Pages           : 48
	Date            : 2008-11-03

This document defines new attributes to facilitate Mobile IPv6
operations using RADIUS infrastructure.  The operations include
bootstrapping of information required by the Mobile Node and the
interface between the Network Access Server, Home Agent and the
RADIUS server used to assist MIP6 operations.

[MEXT] A few findings on the binding revocation draft

Hi all,

here are some newcomer's findings on the
binding revocation draft -01:

1) In Fig 2 and 3 there is a field "Cause" in BRA.
    Where is it defined in more detail?

2) In 9.1.1. it is stated that "The Global (G) bit MUST
    be set and..." without any conditions. However, in the
    next bullet, it is stated that "Whenever the Global (G)
    bit is set", implying that it does not always need to
    be set. These texts are controversial and should be fixed.

Some typos found:

3.4.3: "LMA may only supports IPv4" -> "LMA may only support IPv4"

8.2: "the home SHOULD examine" -> "the home agent SHOULD examine"

      "the home agent delete" -> "the home agent deletes"

9.1.1: "anchor send a" -> "anchor sends a"

        "LMA MUST sends a" -> "LMA MUST send a"

Best regards,
Teemu Rinta-aho

But I don't see why a MIPv6 only systems would need to support the new 
(IPv4) option when it doesn't support DSMIPv6...

I think we should define the new option in a new document.

Re: [MEXT] I-D Action:draft-ietf-mip6-radius-06.txt

Hi folks

Please check if the draft supports dual stack MIPv6.

The corresponding Dimameter draft can be referred to
http://tools.ietf.org/id/draft-ietf-dime-mip6-split-13.txt.

The current Mobile IPv6 and NEMO specifications support IPv6 only.
This specification extends those standards to allow the registration
of IPv4 addresses and prefixes, respectively, and the transport of
both IPv4 and IPv6 packets over the tunnel to the home agent.  This
specification also allows the Mobile Node to roam over both IPv6 and
IPv4, including the case where Network Address Translation is present
on the path between the mobile node and its home agent.
