Issues with Mobile IP

Part of the Series in Computer Science book series (SCS)


Before Mobile IP can be adopted widely, the IETF Working Group has a few obstacles to overcome. These obstacles include problems of network security, performance degradation of TCP traffic, supporting real time traffic, locating network services, supporting multicasting and integrating mobile IP in a wireless network. The most important of these obstacles is network security because reliable communication with mobile node cannot be maintained unless appropriate security precautions are taken.
