Abstract

A Home Agent back-up scheme is proposed to reduce the recovery time in the event of an HA fail- ure. A new entity, the Alternate HA is required that is simply an existing HA that has the ability to regis- ter Mobile Nodes. The scheme does not attempt to address security concerns from the addition of the Alternate HA.
