Technical Summary Mobile IPv6 uses IPsec to protect signaling between the home agent and the mobile node. The mobile IPv6 base document defines the main requirements these nodes must follow. This document discusses these requirements in more depth, illustrates the used packet formats, describes suitable configuration procedures, and shows how implementations can process the packets in the right order. Working Group Summary There was support for this document in the WG. Protocol Quality This document has been reviewed for the IESG by Thomas Narten. RFC Editor Note: Delete the following sentence from the Introduction: Note that in addition to the use of ESP as specified here, it may also be possible to use Authentication Header (AH) , but for brevity this is not discussed in this specification. Also, reference  should be moved from the "Normative References" Section to the "Informative References" section.
