IKEv2 Mobility and Multihoming Protocol (MOBIKE), defined in [RFC4555] allows peers to update their IP addresses without re- establishing IKE and IPsec Security Associations (SAs). In the MOBIKE protocol it is the Initiator of the IKE SA, who is responsible for selecting new SA addresses and for initiating the IP addresses update procedure. This document presents an extension to the MOBIKE protocol that allows the Responder to initiate IP address update. The document updates [RFC4555].
