Abstract

Host Identity Protocol (HIP) [RFC5201] signaling messages can be exchanged over plain IP using the protocol number reserved for this purpose, or over UDP using the UDP port reserved for HIP NAT traversal [RFC5770]. When two hosts perform a HIP base exchange, they set up an encrypted connection between them for data traffic, but continue to use plain IP or UDP for HIP signaling messages.

                 Encrypted Signaling Transport Modes for                        the Host Identity Protocol

Abstract

   This document specifies two transport modes for Host Identity    Protocol (HIP) signaling messages that allow them to be conveyed over    encrypted connections initiated with the Host Identity Protocol.
