Abstract
Mobile IPv6 is an IP-layer mobility protocol that is designed to provide mobility support, allowing an IPv6 node to arbitrarily change its location on the IPv6 Internet and still maintain existing connections by handling the change of addresses at the Internet layer using Mobile IPv6 messages, options, and processes that ensure the correct delivery of data regardless of the mobile node's location. Return Routability is an infrastructureless, lightweight procedure that enables a mobile IPv6 node to request another IPv6 node (maybe unaware of mobility) to test the ownership of its permanent IPv6 address in both its home network and its temporary address in the current IPv6 network; and authorizes a binding procedure by the use of a cryptographic token exchange. The main objective of this research effort is to build a test bed for investigating the vulnerabilities of the Mobile IPv6 RR procedure. The test bed shall facilitate the enactment and analysis of the effects of specific threats on the hosts and the network. While this thesis is not about discovering new vulnerabilities or evaluating countermeasures, the resulting test bed and software shall lay the necessary groundwork for future research in those directions.
