In this paper we present a solution for handling trust manage-ment
in Mobile IPv6. We first define a trust model suitable
for mobile nodes, and then establish trust relationships
between the various entities in the network based on this
model. We are especially interested in the relationship between
the Mobile Node (MN) and the Corresponding Node (CN).
Trust is expressed using authorization certificates. Our model
primarily relies on Simple Public Key Infrastructure (SPKI)
certificates, although other authorization certificates could
be used as well. The main advantage of our approach is
that it is simple, flexible, and scalable, which will be shown
in the paper.
