Abstract
IP multicasting provides a mechanism for location in-
dependent addressing and packet delivery to a group of
hosts that belong to a multicast group. It also provides
e cient mechanisms for hosts to join and leave multi-
cast groups. The problem of supporting macro and micro
level host mobility in the Internet involves similar issues
of location independent addressing, address translation,
packet forwarding and location management of mobile
hosts.
In order to exploit the commonality of goals in the
two problems, we have investigated a new approach for
supporting host mobility using IP multicasting as the sole
mechanism for addressing and routing packets to mobile
hosts. Mobile hosts are identi ed by unique multicast IP
