The MIPv6 bootstrapping procedure allows the mobile node to dynamically discover its home prefix using an IKEv2 exchange. Since the home prefix is not statically configured on the mobile node, there is a need to specify a mechanism for the mobile node to detect if it is on its home link. This document specifies one such mechanism.
