Abstract

When the Host Identity Protocol (HIP) [RFC5201] is used in certain contexts, nodes need the ability to perform source routing. That is, a node needs the ability to send a HIP signaling packet that will traverse a set of nodes before reaching its destination. Such features are needed, e.g., in the HIP-Based Overlay Networking Environment (HIP BONE) [HIP-BONE] or if two nodes wish to keep a third, or more, HIP nodes on the signaling path. This document defines an extension that provides HIP with this functionality.

         Host Identity Protocol (HIP) Multi-Hop Routing Extension

Abstract

   This document specifies two extensions to the Host Identity Protocol    (HIP) to implement multi-hop routing.  The first extension allows    implementing source routing in HIP.  That is, a node sending a HIP    packet can define a set of nodes that the HIP packet should traverse.    The second extension allows a HIP packet to carry and record the list    of nodes that forwarded it.
