Mobile IP Administration Guide

Mobile IP Message Authentication

Each mobile node, foreign agent, and home agent supports a mobility security association between the various Mobile IP components, indexed by their security parameter index (SPI) and IP address. In the case of the mobile node, this address is its home address. Registration messages between a mobile node and its home agent are authenticated with the Mobile-home authentication extension. In addition to Mobile-home authentication, which is mandatory, you can use the optional Mobile-foreign agent and Home-foreign agent authentications.
