A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts

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) [24], 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.

Brief comments:

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:
   [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.
