Abstract
We present the design and implementation of an end-to-end ar-
chitecture for Internet host mobility using dynamic updates to the
Domain Name System (DNS) to track host location. Existing TCP
connections are retained using secure and efficient connection mi-
gration, enabling established connections to seamlessly negotiate a
change in endpoint IP addresses without the need for a third party.
Our architecture is secure--name updates are effected via the se-
cure DNS update protocol, while TCP connection migration uses
a novel set of Migrate options--and provides a pure end-system
alternative to routing-based approaches such as Mobile IP.
Mobile IP was designed under the principle that fixed Internet
hosts and applications were to remain unmodified and only the un-
derlying IP substrate should change. Our architecture requires no
