This memo specifies the details of the Host Identity Protocol (HIP).
HIP provides a rapid exchange of Host Identities (public keys)
between hosts and uses a Sigma-compliant [REF] Diffie-Hellman key
exchange to establish shared secrets between such endpoints. The
protocol is designed to be resistant to Denial-of-Service (DoS) and
Man-in-the-middle (MitM) attacks, and when used together with another
suitable security protocol, such as Encapsulated Security Payload
(ESP) , it provides encryption and/or authentication protection
for upper layer protocols such as TCP and UDP, while enabling
continuity of communications across network layer address changes.
A URL for this Internet-Draft is:
1. The Abstract isn't supposed to contain references.
2. It is helpful to indicate a suggested forum for discussion
(the Abstract is a good place)
3. Numeric references are deprecated
4. The introduction refers to an architecture document, reference #25:
 Moskowitz, R., "Host Identity Protocol Architecture",
draft-moskowitz-hip-arch-03 (work in progress), May 2003.
Given the date, I strongly suspected expiration; I checked the I-D
which shows a -06 version as the latest, also expired, and therefore no
link to retrieve the document. Dead End.
5. Appendices (the draft's contain reference citations) should appear
before the Normative/Informative references.
