- In this paper we present Mobile IP Fast Authentication protocol for IPv6 (MIFAv6). MIFAv6 is developed to support a fast and smooth mobility in IPv6 networks. The Mobile Node (MN) needs to update its binding only at the new Access Router (AR) to be able to resume sending and receiving of data packets. The latency between the current AR and the Home Agent (HA) / Corresponding Node (CN) is hidden from the application and does not affect the performance. A main advantage of MIFAv6 is that it does not make any restrictions on the network topology. Bibtex
