Abstract-- The Internet Engineering Task Force has developed
Mobile IP to handle mobility of Internet hosts at the network
layer. Mobile IP, however, suffers from a number of drawbacks
such as high handover latency, packet loss, and conflict with
network security solutions. In this paper, we describe TraSH, a
new Transport Layer Seamless Handover solution to mobility.
TraSH utilizes multi-homing to achieve a seamless handover of
a mobile host, and is designed to solve many of the drawbacks
of Mobile IP. Various aspects, such as handover, signalling,
location management, data transfer, and security considerations
