A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.
This draft is a work item of the Site Multihoming in IPv6 Working Group of the IETF.
Title : Threats relating to IPv6 multihoming solutions
Author(s) : E. Nordmark
Filename : draft-ietf-multi6-multihoming-threats-00.txt
Pages : 30
Date : 2004-7-6
This document lists security threats related to IPv6 multihoming.
Multihoming can introduce new opportunities to redirect packets to
different, unintended IP addresses.
The intent is to look at how IPv6 multihoming solutions might make
the Internet less secure than the current Internet, without studying
any proposed solution but instead looking at threats that are
inherent in the problem itself. The threats in this document build
upon the threats discovered and discussed as part of the Mobile IPv6

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
