Abstract

   This memo specifies the details of the Host Identity Protocol (HIP).

   The overall description of protocol and the underlying architectural
   thinking is available in the separate
   HIP architecture specification.
   The Host Identity Protocol is used to establish provides a rapid
   authentication exchange of Host Identities (public keys)
   between two hosts and uses a Sigma-compliant [REF] Diffie-Hellman key
   exchange to provide continuity of
   communications establish shared secrets between those hosts independent of the networking
   layer. such endpoints.  The various forms of the Host Identity, Host Identity Tag (HIT) and
   Local Scope Identifier (LSI), are covered in detail.  It
   protocol is described
   how they are used designed to support authentication be resistant to Denial-of-Service (DoS) and the establishment of
   keying material, which is then used for protecting subsequent HIP
   messages,
   Man-in-the-middle (MitM) attacks, and which can be when used for generating session keys for other together with another
   suitable security protocols, protocol, such as IPsec Encapsulaed Encapsulated Security Payload (ESP).
   The basic state machine for HIP
   (ESP) [24], it provides a HIP compliant host with
   the resiliency to avoid many denial-of-service (DoS) attacks.  The
   basic HIP exchange encryption and/or authentication protection
   for two public hosts shows the actual packet flow.
   Other HIP exchanges, including those that work upper layer protocols such as TCP and UDP, while enabling
   continuity of communications across NATs, are
   covered elsewhere. network layer address changes.

1.  Introduction

   The

   This memo specifies the details of the Host Identity Protocol (HIP) provides a rapid exchange (HIP).
   A high-level description of Host
   Identities between two hosts.  The the protocol is designed to be
   resistant to Denial-of-Service (DoS) and Man-in-the-middle (MitM)
   attacks, the underlying
   architectural thinking is available in the separate HIP architecture
   description [25].  Briefly, the HIP architecture proposes an
   alternative to the dual use of IP addresses as "locators" (routing
   labels) and when "identifiers" (endpoint, or host, identifiers).  Instead,
   in HIP, the host identifiers are public keys of a public/private key
   pair.  By using public keys (and their representations) as host
   identifiers, to which higher layer protocols are bound instead of an
   IP address, dynamic changes to IP address sets can be directly

   between hosts at the TCP/IP stack level can be obtained.

   This memo specifies the base HIP protocol ("base exchange") used together
   between hosts to establish communications context (keying material,
   per-packet context tags) prior to communications.  It also defines a
   packet format and procedures for updating an active HIP association.
   Other elements of the HIP architecture are specified in other
   documents, including how HIP can be combined with another suitable security
   protocol, such as Encapsulated a variant of the
   Encapsulating Security Payload (ESP) [23], it
   provides DoS for encryption and/or
   authentication protection, mobility and MitM protection host multihoming extensions,
   DNS extensions for upper layer protocols, such as
   TCP storing host identities, HIP-related
   infrastructure in the network, techniques for NAT traversal, and UDP.
   possibly other future extensions.

1.1  A new name space New Name Space and identifiers Identifiers

   The Host Identity Protocol introduces a new namespace, the Host
   Identity.  The effects  Some ramifications of this change new namespace are explained in
   the companion document, the HIP architecture [21] [25] specification.

   There are two main representations of the Host Identity, the full
   Host Identifier (HI) and the Host Identity Tag (HIT).  The HI is a
   public key and directly represents the Identity.  Since there are
   different public key algorithms that can be used with different key
   lengths, the HI is not good for use as a packet identifier, or as an
   index into the various operational tables needed to support HIP.
   Consequently, a hash of the HI, the Host Identity Tag (HIT), becomes
   the operational representation.  It is 128 bits long and is used in
   the HIP payloads and to index the corresponding state in the end
   hosts.  The HIT has an important security property in that it is
   self-certifying (see Section 3).

1.2  The HIP base exchange Base Exchange

   The HIP base exchange is a two-party cryptographic protocol that
   consists of used to
   establish communications context between hosts.  The base exchange is
   a Sigma-compliant [REF] four packets. packet exchange.  The first party is
   called the Initiator and the second party the Responder.  The four-packet four-
   packet design helps to make HIP DoS resilient.  The protocol
   exchanges Diffie-Hellman keys in the 2nd and 3rd packets, and
   authenticates the parties in the 3rd and 4th packets.  Additionally, it starts
   the Responder starts a cookie puzzle exchange in the 2nd packet, with
   the Initiator completing it in the 3rd packet. packet before the Responder
   stores any state from the exchange.

   The exchange uses can use the Diffie-Hellman exchange output to hide encrypt the Host
   Identity of the Initiator in packet 3.  The Responder's 3 (although Aura et al. [29]
   notes that such operation may interfere with packet-inspecting
   middleboxes), or the Host Identity
   is not may instead be sent unencrypted.
   The Responder's Host Identity is not protected.  It should be noted,
   however, that both the Initiator's and the Responder's HITs are
   transported as such (in cleartext) in the packets, allowing an
   eavesdropper with a priori knowledge about the parties to verify
   their identities.

   Data packets start to flow after the 4th packet.  The 3rd and 4th HIP
   packets may carry a data payload in the future.  However, the details
   of this are to be defined later as more implementation experience is
   gained.

   Finally, HIP is designed as an end-to-end authentication and key
   establishment protocol, to be used with Encapsulated Security Payload
   (ESP) [23] [24] and other end-to-end security protocols.  The base
   protocol lacks the details for security association management and
   much of the fine-grained policy control found in Internet Key
   Exchange IKE RFC2409 [8] that allows IKE to support complex gateway
   policies.  Thus, HIP is not a replacement for IKE.

   HIT Hash Algorithm: hash algorithm used to generate a Host Identity
   Tag (HIT) from the Host Identity public key.  Currently SHA-1 [23] is
   used.

3.  Host Identifier (HI) and its representations Representations

   A public key of an asymmetric key pair is used as the Host Identifier
   (HI).  Correspondingly, the host itself is defined as the entity that
   holds the private key from the key pair.  See the HIP architecture
   specification [21] [25] for more details about the difference between an
   identity and the corresponding identifier.

   HIP implementations MUST support the Rivest Shamir Adelman (RSA) [14] [15]
   public key algorithm, and SHOULD support the Digital Signature
   Algorithm (DSA) [13] algorithm; other algorithms MAY be supported.

   A hash of the HI, the Host Identity Tag (HIT), is used in protocols
   to represent the Host Identity.  The HIT is 128 bits long and has the
   following three key properties: i) it is the same length as an IPv6
   address and can be used in address-sized fields in APIs and
   protocols, ii) it is self-certifying (i.e., given a HIT, it is
   computationally hard to find a Host Identity key that matches the
   HIT), and iii) the probability of HIT collision between two hosts is
   very low.

   In many environments, 128 bits is still considered large.  For
   example, currently used IPv4 based applications are constrained with
   32-bit address fields.  Another problem is that the cohabitation of
   IPv6 and HIP might require some applications to differentiate an IPv6
   address from a HIT.  Thus, a third representation, the Local Scope
   Identifier (LSI), may be needed.  There are two types of such LSIs:
   32-bit IPv4-compatible ones and 128-bit IPv6-compatible ones.  The
   LSI provides a compression of the HIT with only a local scope so that
   it can be carried efficiently in any application level packet and
   used in API calls.  The LSIs do not have the same properties as HITs
   (i.e., they are not self-certifying nor are they as unlikely to
   collide -- hence their local scope), and consequently they must be
   used more carefully.

   Finally, HIs, HITs, HIs and LSIs HITs are not expected to be carried explicitly in
   the headers of user data packets. packets, due to their sizes.  Depending on
   the form of further communication, other methods are used to map the
   data packet to the these representatives of host identities.  For
   example, if ESP is used to protect data traffic, the Security
   Parameter Index (SPI) can be used for this purpose.  In some cases,
   this makes it possible to use HIP without an additional explicit
   protocol header.

3.1  Host Identity Tag (HIT)

   The Host Identity Tag is a 128 bits long value -- a hash of the Host
   Identifier.  There are two advantages of using a hash over the actual
   Host Identity public key in protocols.  Firstly, its fixed length
   makes for easier protocol coding and also better manages the packet
   size cost of this technology.  Secondly, it presents a consistent
   format to the protocol whatever underlying identity technology is
   used.

   There are two types of HITs.  HITs of the first type, called _type _Type 1
   HIT_, consist of 128 an 8-bit prefix followed by 120 bits of the SHA-1 hash of
   the public key.  HITs of the second type (Type 2 HIT) consist of a
   Host Assigning Authority Field (HAA), and only the last 64 bits come
   from a SHA-1 hash of the Host Identity.  This latter format for HIT
   is recommended for 'well known' systems.  It is possible to support a
   resolution mechanism for these names in hierarchical directories,
   like the DNS.  Another use of HAA is in policy controls, see
   Section 11.

   As the type of a HIT cannot be determined by inspecting its contents,
   the HIT type must be communicated by some external means.

   When comparing HITs for equality, it is RECOMMENDED that conforming
   implementations ignore the TBD top most bits.  This is to allow
   better compatibility for legacy IPv6 applications; see [29].
   However, independent of how many bits are actually used for HIT
   comparison, it is also RECOMMENDED that the final equality decision
   is based on the public key and not the HIT, if possible.  See also
   Section 3.2 for related discussion. 7.

   This document fully specifies only type Type 1 HITs.  HITs that consists
   of the HAA field and the hash are specified in [25]. [27].

   Any conforming implementation MUST be able to deal with Type 1 HITs.
   When handling other than type Type 1 HITs, the implementation is
   RECOMMENDED to explicitly learn and record the binding between the
   Host Identifier and the HIT, as it may not be able to generate such
   HITs from the Host Identifiers.

3.1.1  Restricting HIT values

   To facilitate experimentation and make certain kind  It is a matter of
   implementations easier, the policy whether a
   host will accept a HIP connection when such binding is not known.

   The following restrictions are temporarily
   placed on HITs.  These restriction are to be lifted at figure shows the end structure of a Type 1 HIT.

                                                                  1
       0                                                          2
       0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8  ...                                     7
      +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-//-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
      |   Prefix      |             Hash                           |
      +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-//-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

       Prefix (8 bits) - Fixed prefix, TBD.  All other values reserved.

          0x40 - SHA-1 hash algorithm
                 All other values reserved.

       Hash (120 bits) - Lower-order bits of
   2008.  That is, after January 1st 2009, any implementation claiming
   conformance to this specification MUST accept any HITs from peers and
   be able to process them normally.

   The restrictions: Before the end hash (as specified by
                 the hash algorithm) of 2008, all implementations SHOULD
   restrict the HITs they generate to ones whose upper-most (left-most)
   two bits are either binary01 or10.  That is, when generating new HIs,
   if public key

   Additional values for the resulting prefix (including different hash
   algorithms, or other information) may be defined in the future.  A
   host may receive a HIT has as its first two bits as00 or11, for which it does not understand the
   implementation SHOULD generate new HIs until prefix.
   In such a case, it generates one that
   fulfills this restriction.  Additionally, a conforming implementation
   MAY refuse to communicate with a peer that has a HIT with the
   upper-most bits either00 or11.  When refusing a HIP connection on
   this bases, the implementation MAY send an R2 with a NOTIFY payload,
   with the NOTIFY code being UNSUPPORTED_HIT_VALUE_RANGE.  Any such
   NOTIFYs may will not be rate-limited

   A rationale: One way to experimentally implement HIP is able to use
   unmodified IPv6, TCP and UDP implementations in the stack, using HITs
   in check the place of IPv6 addresses.  This modification makes it easier to
   use existing IPv6 data structures to hold HITs and to distinguish mapping between the two data types.  If the IPv6 address space HI
   and the HIT
   value space overlap, it becomes hard to define secure IPsec policies
   without explicitly tagging the values either as HITs or IPv6
   addresses.

3.1.2 HIT.

3.2  Generating a HIT from a HI

   The 128 120 or 64 hash bits in a HIT MUST be generated by taking the
   least significant 128 120 or 64 bits of the SHA-1 [22] HIT Hash Algorithm hash of
   the Host Identifier as it is represented in the Host Identity field
   in a HIP payload packet.

   For Identities that are either RSA or DSA public keys, the HIT is
   formed as follows:

   1.  The public key is encoded as specified in the corresponding
       DNSSEC document, taking the algorithm specific portion of the
       RDATA part of the KEY RR.  There is currently only two defined
       public key algorithms: RSA and DSA.  Hence, either of the
       following applies:

          The RSA public key is encoded as defined in RFC3110 [14] [15]
          Section 2, taking the exponent length (e_len), exponent (e)
          and modulus (n) fields concatenated.  The length (n_len) of
          the modulus (n) can be determined from the total HI length
          (hi_len) and the preceding HI fields including the exponent
          (e).  Thus, the data to be hashed has the same length as the
          HI (hi_len).  The fields MUST be encoded in network byte
          order, as defined in RFC3110 [14]. [15].

          The DSA public key is encoded as defined in RFC2536 [13]
          Section 2, taking the fields T, Q, P, G, and Y, concatenated.
          Thus, the data to be hashed is 1 + 20 + 3 * 64 + 3 * 8 * T
          octets long, where T is the size parameter as defined in
          RFC2536 [13].  The size parameter T, affecting the field
          lengths, MUST be selected as the minimum value that is long
          enough to accommodate P, G, and Y. The fields MUST be encoded
          in network byte order, as defined in RFC2536 [13].

   2.  A SHA-1 hash [22] [23] is calculated over the encoded key.

   3.  The least significant 128 120 or 64 bits of the hash result are used
       to create the HIT, as defined above.

   In Appendix D the HIT generation process is illustrated using pseudo-
   code.

4.  Protocol Overview

   The following pseudo-codes illustrates material is an overview of the process for both RSA HIP protocol operation,
   and
   DSA.  The symbol := denotes assignment; does not contain all details of the symbol += denotes
   appending.  The pseudo-function encode_in_network_byte_order takes
   two parameters, an integer (bignum) packet formats or the packet

   returns more detail

   normative in case of any conflicts with this section.

3.2  Local Scope Identifier (LSI)

   LSIs are 32 or 128 bits long localized representations of a Host
   Identity.
   protocol number 99 is currently used).  The purpose of an LSI HIP payload (Section 5.1)
   header could be carried in every IP datagram.  However, since HIP
   headers are relatively large (40 bytes), it is desirable to facilitate using Host
   Identities
   'compress' the HIP header so that the HIP header only occurs in existing IPv4
   control packets used to establish or IPv6 based protocols and APIs. change HIP state.  The
   LSI can be used anywhere in system processes where IP addresses have
   traditionally been used, such as IPv4 actual
   method for header 'compression' and IPv6 API calls for matching data packets with
   existing HIP associations (if any) is defined in separate extension
   documents, describing transport formats and FTP PORT
   commands.

   The IPv4-compatible LSIs methods.  All HIP
   implementations MUST be allocated from implement, at minimum, the TBD subnet and ESP transport format
   for HIP [24].

4.1  Creating a HIP Association

   By definition, the IPv6-compatible LSIs MUST be allocated from system initiating a HIP exchange is the TBD subnet.  That
   makes it easier to differentiate between LSIs Initiator,
   and IP addresses at the
   API level.  By default, peer is the low order 24 bits of an IPv4-compatible
   LSI are equal Responder.  This distinction is forgotten once
   the base exchange completes, and either party can become the
   Initiator in future communications.

   The HIP base exchange serves to manage the low order 24 bits establishment of state
   between an Initiator and a Responder.  The first packet, I1,
   initiates the corresponding HIT,
   while exchange, and the low order TBD bits last three packets, R1, I2, and R2,
   constitute a standard authenticated Diffie-Hellman key exchange for
   session key generation.  During the Diffie-Hellman key exchange, a
   piece of an IPv6-compatible LSI keying material is generated.  The HIP association keys are equal
   drawn from this keying material.  If other cryptographic keys are
   needed, e.g., to be used with ESP, they are expected to be drawn from
   the low order TBD bits of the corresponding HIT.

   A host performing same keying material.

   The Initiator first sends a HIP handshake may discover that trigger packet, I1, to the LSI formed
   from Responder.
   The packet contains only the peer's HIT collides with another LSI in use locally (i.e., of the lower 24 or TBD bits Initiator and possibly the
   HIT of two different HITs are the same).  In Responder, if it is known.

   The second packet, R1, starts the actual exchange.  It contains a
   puzzle-- a cryptographic challenge that case, the host MUST handle Initiator must solve
   before continuing the LSI collision locally such that
   application calls exchange.  The level of difficulty of the
   puzzle can be disambiguated.  One possible means adjusted based on level of doing
   so is to perform a Host NAT function to locally convert a peer's LSI
   into a different LSI value.  This would require trust with the host to ensure
   that LSI bits on Initiator,
   current load, or other factors.  In addition, the wire (i.e., in R1 contains the application data stream) are
   converted back to match that host's LSI.  Other alternatives for
   resolving LSI collisions may be added in
   initial Diffie-Hellman parameters and a signature, covering part of
   the future.

4.  Host Identity Protocol

   The Host Identity Protocol is IP protocol TBD (number will be
   assigned by IANA).  The HIP payload (Section 6.1) header could be
   carried in every datagram.  However, since HIP datagrams message.  Some fields are
   relatively large (at least 40 bytes), it is desirable left outside the signature to 'compress' support
   pre-created R1s.

   In the HIP header so that I2 packet, the HIP header only occur in datagrams Initiator must display the solution to
   establish or change HIP state. the
   received puzzle.  Without a correct solution, the I2 message is
   discarded.  The actual method I2 also contains a Diffie-Hellman parameter that
   carries needed information for header
   'compression' and matching data packets with existing HIP
   associations (if any) the Responder.  The packet is defined in separate extension documents,
   describing transport formats and methods.  All HIP implementations
   MUST implement, at minimum, signed
   by the ESP transport format for HIP [23].

   For testing purposes, sender.

   The R2 packet finalizes the protocol number 99 is currently used.

4.1  HIP base exchange exchange.  The packet is signed.

   The HIP base exchange serves is illustrated below.  The term "key" refers to manage the establishment of state
   between an Initiator
   host identity public key, and "sig" represents a Responder. signature using such
   key.  The last three packets of the
   exchange, R1, I2, and R2, constitute a standard authenticated
   Diffie-Hellman key exchange for session key generation.  During the
   Diffie-Hellman key exchange, a piece of keying material is generated.
   The HIP association keys are drawn from this keying material.  If contain other cryptographic keys are needed, e.g., to be used with ESP, they
   are expected to be drawn from the same keying material.

   The Initiator first sends a trigger packet, I1, to the Responder.
   The packet contains only the HIT of the Initiator and possibly the
   HIT of the Responder, if it is known.

   The second packet, R1, starts the actual exchange.  It contains a
   puzzle, that is, a cryptographic challenge that the Initiator must
   solve before continuing the exchange.  In addition, it contains the
   initial Diffie-Hellman parameters and a signature, covering part of
   the message.  Some fields are left outside the signature to support
   pre-created R1s.

   In the I2 packet, the Initiator must display the solution to the
   received puzzle.  Without a correct solution, the I2 message is
   discarded.  The I2 also contains a Diffie-Hellman parameter that
   carries needed information for the Responder.  The packet is signed
   by the sender.

   The R2 packet finalizes the base exchange.  The packet is signed.

   The base exchange is illustrated below. not shown in this figure.

   In R1, the signature covers the packet, after setting the Initiator
   HIT, header checksum, and the PUZZLE parameter's Opaque and Random #I
   fields temporarily to zero, and excluding any TLVs that follow the
   signature.

   In I2, the signature covers the whole packet, excluding any TLVs that
   follow the signature.

   In R2, the signature and the HMAC cover the whole envelope.

   In this section we cover the overall design of the base exchange.
   The details are the subject of the rest of this memo.

4.1.1  HIP Cookie Mechanism

   The purpose of the HIP cookie mechanism is to protect the Responder
   from a number of denial-of-service threats.  It allows the Responder
   to delay state creation until receiving I2.  Furthermore, the puzzle
   included in the cookie allows the Responder to use a fairly cheap
   calculation to check that the Initiator is "sincere" in the sense
   that it has churned CPU cycles in solving the puzzle.

   The Cookie mechanism has been explicitly designed to give space for
   various implementation options.  It allows a responder Responder implementation
   to completely delay session specific state creation until a valid I2
   is received.  In such a case a validly correctly formatted I2 can be rejected
   earliest
   only once the Responder has checked its validity by computing one
   hash function.  On the other hand, the design also allows a responder Responder
   implementation to keep state about received I1s, and match the
   received I2s against the state, thereby allowing the implementation
   to avoid the computational cost of the hash function.  The drawback
   of this latter approach is the requirement of creating state.
   Finally, it also allows an implementation to use other combinations
   of the space-saving and computation-saving mechanisms.

   One possible way for a Responder to remain stateless but drop most
   spoofed I2s is to base the selection of the cookie on some function
   over the Initiator's Host Identity.  The idea is that the Responder
   has a (perhaps varying) number of pre-calculated R1 packets, and it
   selects one of these based on the information carried in I1.  When
   the Responder then later receives I2, it checks that the cookie in
   the I2 matches with the cookie sent in the R1, thereby making it
   impractical for the attacker to first exchange one I1/R1, and then
   generate a large number of spoofed I2s that seemingly come from
   different IP addresses or use different HITs.  The method does not
   protect from an attacker that uses fixed IP addresses and HITs,
   though.  Against such an attacker it is probably best to create a
   piece of local state, and remember that the puzzle check has
   previously failed.  See Appendix C for one possible implementation.
   Note, however, that the implementations MUST NOT use the exact
   implementation given in the appendix, and
   Implementations SHOULD include sufficient randomness to the algorithm
   so that algorithm complexity attacks become impossible [27]. [30].

   The Responder can set the puzzle difficulty for Initiator, based on
   its concern level of trust of the Initiator.  The Responder SHOULD use
   heuristics to determine when it is under a denial-of-service attack,
   and set the puzzle difficulty value K appropriately; see below.

   The Responder starts the cookie exchange when it receives an I1.  The
   Responder supplies a random number I, and requires the Initiator to
   find a number J. To select a proper J, the Initiator must create the
   concatenation of I, the HITs of the parties, and J, and take a SHA-1
   hash over this concatenation.  The lowest order K bits of the result
   MUST be zeros.  The value K sets the difficulty of the puzzle.

   To generate a proper number J, the Initiator will have to generate a
   number of Js until one produces the hash target of zero.  The
   Initiator SHOULD give up after exceeding the puzzle lifetime in the
   PUZZLE TLV.  The Responder needs to re-create the concatenation of I,
   the HITs, and the provided J, and compute the hash once to prove that
   the Initiator did its assigned task.

   To prevent pre-computation attacks, the Responder MUST select the
   number I in such a way that the Initiator cannot guess it.
   Furthermore, the construction MUST allow the Responder to verify that
   the value was indeed selected by it and not by the Initiator.  See
   Appendix C for an example on how to implement this.

   Using the Opaque data field in an ECHO_REQUEST parameter, the
   Responder can include some data in R1 that the Initiator must copy
   unmodified in the corresponding I2 packet.  The Responder can
   generate the Opaque data in various ways; e.g. using the sent I, some
   secret, and possibly other related data.  Using this same secret,
   received I in I2 packet and possible other data, the Receiver can
   verify that it has itself sent the I to the Initiator.  The Responder
   MUST change the secret periodically.

   It is RECOMMENDED that the Responder generates a new cookie and a new
   R1 once every few minutes.  Furthermore, it is RECOMMENDED that the
   Responder remembers an old cookie at least 2*lifetime seconds after
   it has been deprecated.  These time values allow a slower Initiator
   to solve the cookie puzzle while limiting the usability that an old,
   solved cookie has to an attacker.

   NOTE: The protocol developers explicitly considered whether R1 should
   include a timestamp in order to protect the Initiator from replay
   attacks.  The decision was NOT to NOT include a timestamp.

   NOTE: The protocol developers explicitly considered whether a memory
   bound function should be used for the puzzle instead of a CPU bound
   function.  The decision was not to use memory bound functions.  At
   the time of the decision the idea of memory bound functions was
   relatively new and their IPR status were unknown.  Once there is more
   experience about memory bound functions and once their IPR status is
   better known, it may be reasonable to reconsider this decision.

4.1.2  Authenticated Diffie-Hellman Protocol

   The packets R1, the values I I2, and K are sent in network byte order.  Similarly,
   in I2 the values I R2 implement a standard authenticated Diffie-
   Hellman exchange.  The Responder sends its public Diffie-Hellman key
   and J are sent its public authentication key, i.e., its host identity, in network byte order. R1.
   The SHA-1
   hash is created by concatenating, signature in network byte order, R1 allows the
   following data, in Initiator to verify that the following order:
      64-bit random value I, in network byte order, as appearing in R1
      and I2.
      128-bit initiator HIT, in network byte order, as appearing in has
   been once generated by the
      HIP Payload in R1 Responder.  However, since it is
   precomputed and I2.
      128-bit responder HIT, in network byte order, as appearing in therefore does not cover all of the packet, it does
   not protect from replay attacks.

   When the Initiator receives an R1, it computes the Diffie-Hellman
   session key.  It creates a HIP Payload in R1 association using keying material from
   the session key (see Section 6.4), and I2.
      64-bit random value J, in network byte order, as appearing in I2.
   In order may use the association to be a valid response cookie,
   encrypt its public authentication key, i.e., host identity.  The
   resulting I2 contains the K low-order bits Initiator's Diffie-Hellman key and its
   (optionally) encrypted public authentication key.  The signature in
   I2 covers all of the
   resulting SHA-1 digest must be zero.

   Notes: packet.

   The length of Responder extracts the data to be hashed is 48 bytes.
      All Initiator Diffie-Hellman public key from
   the data in the hash input MUST be in network byte order.

      The order of I2, computes the initiator Diffie-Hellman session key, creates a
   corresponding HIP association, and responder HITs are different in decrypts the
      R1 and I2 packets, see Section 6.1.  Care must be taken to copy Initiator's public
   authentication key.  It can then verify the values in right order signature using the
   authentication key.

   The final message, R2, is needed to protect the hash input.

4.1.3  HIP Replay Protection

   The HIP protocol includes the Responder

      Sets up following mechanisms to protect against
   malicious replays.  Responders are protected against replays of I1
   packets by virtue of the puzzle difficulty K.
      Creates a signed stateless response to I1s with presigned R1 and caches it.
   Responder

      Selects a suitable cached R1.

   messages.  Initiators are protected against R1 replays by a random number I.
      Sends I and K
   monotonically increasing "R1 generation counter" included in an the R1.
      Saves I
   Responders are protected against replays or false I2s by the cookie
   mechanism (Section 4.1.1 above), and K for a Delta time.
   Initiator

      Generates repeated attempts optional use of opaque data.
   Hosts are protected against replays to solve the puzzle until a matching J
      is found:

      Sends I R2s and J in an I2.
   Responder

      Verifies that the received I UPDATEs by use of a
   less expensive HMAC verification preceding HIP signature
   verification.

   The R1 generation counter is a saved one.
      Finds monotonically increasing 64-bit
   counter that may be initialized to any value.  The scope of the right K based on I.
      Computes V := Ltrunc( SHA-1( I | HIT-I | HIT-R | J ), K )
      Rejects if V != 0
      Accept
   counter MAY be system-wide but SHOULD be per host identity, if V == 0 there
   is more than one local host identity.  The Ltrunc (SHA-1(), K) denotes value of this counter
   SHOULD be kept across system reboots and invocations of the lowest order K bits HIP base
   exchange.  This counter indicates the current generation of cookie
   puzzles.  Implementations MUST accept puzzles from the SHA-1
   result.

4.1.2  Authenticated Diffie-Hellman protocol

   The packets R1, I2, current
   generation and R2 implement a standard authenticated
   Diffie-Hellman exchange.  The Responder sends its public
   Diffie-Hellman key MAY accept puzzles from earlier generations.  A
   system's local counter MUST be incremented at least as often as every
   time old R1s cease to be valid, and its public authentication key, i.e., its host
   identity, in R1.  The signature in R1 allows SHOULD never be decremented, lest
   the Initiator host expose its peers to verify
   that the replay of previously generated,
   higher numbered R1s.  Also, the R1 has been once generated by generation counter MUST NOT roll
   over; if the Responder.  However, since
   it counter is precomputed and therefore does not cover all of about to become exhausted, the packet, it
   does not protect from corresponding
   HI must be abandoned and replaced with a new one.

   A host may receive more than one R1, either due to sending multiple
   I1s (Section 6.5.1) or due to a replay attacks. of an old R1.  When the Initiator receives sending
   multiple I1s, an R1, it computes the Diffie-Hellman
   session key.  It creates initiator SHOULD wait for a HIP association using keying material from
   the session key (see Section 9), and uses small amount of time
   after the association first R1 reception to encrypt
   its public authentication key, i.e., host identity.  The resulting I2
   contains the Initiator's Diffie-Hellman key allow possibly multiple R1s to
   arrive, and its encrypted public
   authentication key.  The signature in I2 covers all of it SHOULD respond to an R1 among the packet.

   The Responder extracts set with the largest
   R1 generation counter.  If an Initiator Diffie-Hellman public key from is processing an R1 or has
   already sent an I2 (still waiting for R2) and it receives another R1
   with a larger R1 generation counter, it MAY elect to restart R1
   processing with the I2, computes fresher R1, as if it were the Diffie-Hellman session key, creates a
   corresponding first R1 to arrive.

   Upon conclusion of an active HIP association, and decrypts association with another host, the Initiator's public
   authentication key.  It can then verify
   R1 generation counter associated with the signature using peer host SHOULD be
   flushed.  A local policy MAY override the
   authentication key. default flushing of R1
   counters on a per-HIT basis.  The final message, R2, reason for recommending the
   flushing of this counter is needed to protect that there may be hosts where the Initiator from replay
   attacks.

4.1.3 R1
   generation counter (occasionally) decreases; e.g., due to hardware
   failure.

4.1.4  Refusing a HIP replay protection

   The Exchange

   A HIP protocol includes the following mechanisms aware host may choose not to protect against
   malicious replays.  Responders are protected against replays of I1
   packets by virtue of accept a HIP exchange.  If the stateless response
   host's policy is to I1s with presigned R1
   messages.  Initiators are protected against R1 replays by only be an Initiator, it should begin its own HIP
   exchange.  A host MAY choose to have such a
   monotonically increasing "R1 generation counter" included in policy since only the R1.
   Responders are
   Initiator HI is protected against replays or false I2s by in the cookie
   mechanism (Section 4.1.1 above), and optional use of opaque data.
   Hosts are protected against replays to R2s and UPDATEs by use of a
   less expensive HMAC verification preceding HIP signature
   verification.

   The R1 generation counter exchange.  There is a monotonically increasing 64-bit
   counter that may be initialized to any value.  The scope risk of the
   counter MAY be system-wide but SHOULD be per host identity, a race
   condition if there each host's policy is more than one local host identity.  The value of this counter
   SHOULD to only be kept across system reboots and invocations of an Initiator, at which
   point the HIP base
   exchange.  This counter indicates exchange will fail.

   If the current generation of cookie
   puzzles.  Implementations MUST accept puzzles from host's policy does not permit it to enter into a HIP exchange
   with the current
   generation and MAY accept puzzles from earlier generations. Initiator, it should send an ICMP 'Destination Unreachable,
   Administratively Prohibited' message.  A
   system's local counter MUST be incremented at least as often more complex HIP packet is
   not used here as every
   time old R1s cease it actually opens up more potential DoS attacks than
   a simple ICMP message.

4.2  Updating a HIP Association

   A HIP association between two hosts may need to be valid, and SHOULD never be decremented, lest updated over time.
   Examples include the host expose its peers need to the replay of previously generated,
   higher numbered R1s.  Also, the R1 generation counter MUST NOT roll
   over; if the counter rekey expiring user data security
   associations, add new security associations, or change IP addresses
   associated with hosts.  The UPDATE packet is about to become exhausted, used for those and other
   similar purposes.  This document only specifies the corresponding
   HI must be abandoned UPDATE packet
   format and replaced basic processing rules, with mandatory TLVs.  The actual
   usage is defined in separate specifications.

   HIP provides a new one.

   A host may receive more than one R1, either due to sending multiple
   I1s (Section 8.4.1) or due to a replay of an old R1.  When sending general purpose UPDATE packet, which can carry
   multiple I1s, an initiator SHOULD wait HIP parameters, for a small amount of time
   after updating the first R1 reception to allow possibly multiple R1s to
   arrive, and it SHOULD respond to an R1 among HIP state between two
   peers.  The UPDATE mechanism has the set with following properties:

      UPDATE messages carry a monotonically increasing sequence number
      and are explicitly acknowledged by the largest
   R1 generation counter.  If an initiator peer.  Lost UPDATEs or
      acknowledgments may be recovered via retransmission.  Multiple
      UPDATE messages may be outstanding.

      UPDATE is protected by both HMAC and HIP_SIGNATURE parameters,
      since processing UPDATE signatures alone is a potential DoS attack
      against intermediate systems.

   The UPDATE packet is defined in Section 5.3.5.

4.3  Error Processing

   HIP error processing behavior depends on whether there exists an R1
   active HIP association or has
   already sent not.  In general, if an I2 (still waiting for R2) and it receives another R1
   with a larger R1 generation counter, it MAY elect to restart R1
   processing with the fresher R1, as if it were the first R1 to arrive.

   Upon conclusion of an active HIP association with another host,
   exists between the
   R1 generation counter associated with sender and receiver of a packet causing an error
   condition, the peer host receiver SHOULD be
   flushed.  A local policy MAY override the default flushing of R1
   counters on respond with a per-HIT basis.  The reason for recommending NOTIFY packet.  On the
   flushing of this counter is that
   other hand, if there may be hosts where are no existing HIP associations between the R1
   generation counter (occasionally) decreases; e.g., due to hardware
   failure.

4.2  TCP and UDP pseudo-header computation for user data

   When computing TCP
   sender and UDP checksums on user data packets that flow
   through sockets bound to HITs receiver, or LSIs, the IPv6 pseudo-header format
   [11] MUST be used.  Additionally, the HITs MUST be used in receiver cannot reasonably determine the place
   identity of the IPv6 addresses in the IPv6 pseudo-header.  Note that sender, the
   pseudo-header for actual HIP payloads is computed differently; receiver MAY respond with a suitable ICMP
   message; see Section 6.1.2.

4.3  Updating a HIP association

   A 5.4 for more details.

   The HIP association protocol and state machine is designed to recover from one of
   the parties crashing and losing its state.  The following scenarios
   describe the main use cases covered by the design.

      No prior state between the two hosts may need systems.

         The system with data to be updated over time.
   Examples include send is the need to rekey expiring user data security
   associations, add new security associations, or change IP addresses
   associated with hosts. Initiator.  The UPDATE packet is used for those and other
   similar purposes.  This document only specifies process
         follows the UPDATE standard four packet
   format and basic processing rules, with mandatory TLVs.  The actual
   usage is defined in separate specifications.

   HIP provides a general purpose UPDATE packet, which can carry
   multiple HIP parameters, for updating base exchange, establishing
         the HIP state between two
   peers. association.

      The UPDATE mechanism system with data to send has no state with the following properties:
      UPDATE messages carry receiver, but
      the receiver has a monotonically increasing sequence number residual HIP association.

         The system with data to send is the Initiator.  The Initiator
         acts as in no prior state, sending I1 and are explicitly acknowledged by getting R1.  When the peer.  Lost UPDATEs or
      acknowledgments may be recovered via retransmission.  Multiple
      UPDATE messages may be outstanding.
      UPDATE
         Responder receives a valid I2, the old association is protected by both HMAC
         'discovered' and HIP_SIGNATURE parameters,
      since processing UPDATE signatures alone deleted, and the new association is a potential DoS attack
      against intermediate systems.
         established.

      The UPDATE packet is defined in Section 7.6.

4.4  Error processing

   HIP error processing behaviour depends on whether there exists an
   active HIP association or not.  In general, if system with data to send has an HIP association
   exists between association, but the sender and
      receiver of a packet causing an error
   condition, does not.

         The system sends data on the outbound user data security
         association.  The receiver SHOULD respond with a NOTIFY packet.  On the
   other hand, if there are no existing HIP associations between 'detects' the
   sender and receiver, or the receiver cannot reasonably determine the
   identity of the sender, the receiver MAY respond with a suitable ICMP
   message; see Section 6.3 for more details.

4.5  Certificate distribution

   HIP does not define how to use certificates.  However, situation when it does define
         receives a simple certificate transport mechanisms user data packet that MAY be used it cannot match to
   implement certificate-based security policies. any HIP
         association.  The certificate
   payload is defined in Section 6.2.9, and receiving host MUST discard this packet.
         Optionally, the certificate receiving host MAY send an ICMP packet in
   Section 7.5.

4.6  Sending data on HIP packets

   A future version of this document may define how with the
         Parameter Problem type to include user data
   on various inform about non-existing HIP packets.  However, currently the
         association (see Section 5.4), and it MAY initiate a new HIP header
         negotiation.  However, responding with these optional
         mechanisms is a
   terminal header, and not followed by any other headers.

4.7  Transport Formats implementation or policy dependent.

4.4  HIP State Machine

   The actual data transmission format, used for user data after HIP protocol itself has little state.  In the HIP base exchange,
   there is not defined in this document.  Such transport
   formats an Initiator and methods are described in separate specifications.  All
   HIP implementations MUST implement, at minimum, the ESP transport
   format for HIP [23].

   When new transport formats are defined, the corresponding parameters
   MUST have smaller type value than the ESP_TRANSFORM parameter.  The
   order in which a Responder.  Once the transport formats SAs are presented in the R1 packet, established,
   this distinction is lost.  If the preferred order.  The last of the transport formats MUST HIP state needs to be
   ESP transport format, represented by re-
   established, the ESP_TRANSFORM parameter.

5.  HIP protocol overview controlling parameters are which peer still has
   state and which has a datagram to send to its peer.  The following material
   state machine attempts to capture these processes.

   The state machine is presented in a single system view, representing
   either an overview Initiator or a Responder.  There is not a complete overlap
   of processing logic here and in the HIP protocol operation. packet definitions.  Both are
   needed to completely implement HIP.

   Implementors must understand that the state machine, as described
   here, is informational.  Specific implementations are free to
   implement the actual functions differently.  Section 8 6 describes the
   packet processing steps rules in more detail.

   A typical HIP packet flow is shown below, between an Initiator (I)
   and a Responder (R).  It illustrates  This state machine focuses
   on the exchange of four HIP packets
   (I1, I1, R1, I2, and R2).

    I --> Directory: lookup R
    I <-- Directory: return R's addresses, and HI and/or HIT
    I1      I --> R (Hi. Here is my I1, let's talk HIP)
    R1      I <-- R (OK. Here is my R1, handle this HIP cookie)
    I2      I --> R (Compute, compute, here is my counter I2) R2      I <-- R (OK.  Let's finish HIP with my R2)
    I --> R (data)
    I <-- R (data)

   By definition, the system initiating a HIP exchange is the Initiator,
   and the peer is the Responder.  This distinction is forgotten once
   the base exchange completes, and either party can become the
   initiator packets only.  Other states may be
   introduced by mechanisms in future communications.

   User data to send is the Initiator.  The Initiator
         acts as in no prior state, sending requiring a new HIP association, send I1 and getting R1.  When the
         Responder receives a valid I2, the old association is
         'discovered' go to

   Receive I1, send R1 and deleted, stay at UNASSOCIATED

      The system with data go to send has an HIP association, but the
      receiver does not.
         The system sends data on the outbound user data security
         association.  The receiver 'detects' the situation when it
         receives a R2-SENT
        if fail, stay at UNASSOCIATED

   Receive user data packet that it cannot match to any for unknown HIP

   Section 5.4
    and stay at UNASSOCIATED
   Receive CLOSE, optionally send an ICMP packet with the Parameter Problem type to inform about non-existing HIP
         association (see Section 6.3), and it MAY initiate a new HIP
         negotiation.  However, responding with these optional
         mechanisms is implementation or policy dependent.

        if successful, send R2, drop old HIP association, establish a valid Opaque data as well as a valid signature.
   Note that either the original Initiator or the Responder could end up
   restarting the exchange, becoming the new Initiator.

   If a system receives a
        new HIP association, to to R2-SENT

   | CLOSING | HIP association information.  Reacting has not been used for UAL (Unused
   +---------+ Association Lifetime) minutes.

   User data to such traffic depends on the
   implementation and send, requires the environment where creation of another incarnation
       of the implementation is used.

   After HIP association, started by sending the an I1, the HIP negotiation proceeds as normally and,
   when successful, the SA is created
       and stay at the initiating end.  The peer
   end removes the OLD SA CLOSING

   Receive I1, send R1 and replaces it with the new one.

5.4  HIP State Machine

   The HIP protocol itself has little state.  In the HIP base exchange,
   there is an Initiator stay at CLOSING
   Receive I2, process
       if successful, send R2 and a Responder.  Once the SAs are established,
   this distinction is lost.  If the HIP state needs go to be
   re-established, the controlling parameters are which peer still has
   state R2-SENT
       if fail, stay at CLOSING

   Receive R1, process
       if successful, send I2 and which has a datagram go to I2-SENT
       if fail, stay at CLOSING

   Receive CLOSE, process
       if successful, send to its peer.  The following CLOSE_ACK, discard state machine attempts and go to capture these processes.

   The CLOSED
       if failed, stay at CLOSING
   Receive CLOSE_ACK, process
       if successful, discard state machine is presented in a single system view, representing
   either an Initiator or a Responder.  There is not a complete overlap
   of processing logic here and in the packet definitions.  Both are
   needed go to completely implement HIP.

   Implementors must understand that the state machine, as described
   here, UNASSOCIATED
       if failed, stay at CLOSING

   Receive ANYOTHER, drop and stay at CLOSING

   Timeout, increment timeout sum, reset timer
       if timeout sum is informational.  Specific implementations are free less than UAL+MSL minutes, retransmit CLOSE
         and stay at CLOSING
       if timeout sum is greater than UAL+MSL minutes, go to
   implement the actual functions differently.  Section 8 describes
          UNASSOCIATED

   +--------+
   | CLOSED | CLOSE_ACK sent, resending CLOSE_ACK if necessary
   +--------+

   Datagram to send, requires the
   packet processing rules in more detail.  This state machine focuses
   on creation of another incarnation
       of the HIP association, started by sending an I1, R1, I2,
       and R2 packets only.  Other states may be
   introduced by mechanisms in other drafts (such as mobility stay at CLOSED

   Receive I1, send R1 and
   multihoming).

4.5  User Data Considerations

4.5.1  TCP and stay at ESTABLISHED
   Receive I2, process with cookie UDP Pseudo-header Computation for User Data

   When computing TCP and possible Opaque UDP checksums on user data verification
        if successful, send R2, drop old HIP association, establish a new
        HIP association, to packets that flow
   through sockets bound to R2-SENT
        if fail, stay at ESTABLISHED
   Receive R1, drop and stay at ESTABLISHED
   Receive R2, drop and stay at ESTABLISHED

   Receive user data HITs, the IPv6 pseudo-header format [11]
   MUST be used, even if the outer addresses on the packet are IPv4
   addresses.  Additionally, the HITs MUST be used in the place of the
   IPv6 addresses in the IPv6 pseudo-header.  Note that the pseudo-
   header for actual HIP association, process and stay at ESTABLISHED
   No packet sent/received during UAL minutes, send CLOSE and go to CLOSING.
   Receive CLOSE, process
        if successful, send CLOSE_ACK and go payloads is computed differently; see
   Section 5.1.2.

4.5.2  Sending Data on HIP Packets

   A future version of this document may define how to CLOSED
        if failed, stay at ESTABLISHED

   +---------+
   | CLOSING | include user data
   on various HIP association has packets.  However, currently the HIP header is a
   terminal header, and not been followed by any other headers.

4.5.3  Transport Formats

   The actual data transmission format, used for UAL (Unused
   +---------+ Association Lifetime) minutes.

   User user data to send, requires the creation of another incarnation
       of after the HIP association, started by sending an I1,
   base exchange, is not defined in this document.  Such transport
   formats and stay methods are described in separate specifications.  All
   HIP implementations MUST implement, at CLOSING

   Receive I1, send minimum, the ESP transport
   format for HIP [24].

   When new transport formats are defined, they get the type value from
   the HIP Transform type value space 2048 - 4095.  The order in which
   the transport formats are presented in the R1 packet, is the
   preferred order.  The last of the transport formats MUST be ESP
   transport format, represented by the ESP_TRANSFORM parameter.

4.5.4  Reboot and stay at CLOSING
   Receive I2, process
       if successful, send R2 and go to R2-SENT
       if fail, stay at CLOSING
   Receive R1, process
       if successful, send I2 and go to I2-SENT
       if fail, stay at CLOSING

   Receive CLOSE, process
       if successful, send CLOSE_ACK, discard SA Timeout Restart of HIP

   Simulating a loss of state and go to CLOSED
       if failed, stay at CLOSING
   Receive CLOSE_ACK, is a potential DoS attack.  The following
   process
       if successful, discard state and go has been crafted to UNASSOCIATED
       if failed, stay at CLOSING

   Receive ANYOTHER, drop and stay at CLOSING

   Timeout, increment timeout sum, reset timer
       if timeout sum is less than UAL+MSL minutes, retransmit CLOSE
         and stay at CLOSING
       if timeout sum is greater than UAL+MSL minutes, go manage state recovery without presenting
   a DoS opportunity.

   If a host reboots or times out, it has lost its HIP state.  If the
   system that lost state has a datagram to
          UNASSOCIATED

   +--------+
   | CLOSED | CLOSE_ACK sent, resending CLOSE_ACK if necessary
   +--------+

   Datagram deliver to send, requires the creation of another incarnation
       of its peer, it
   simply restarts the HIP association, started by sending exchange.  The peer replies with an I1,
       and stay at CLOSED

   Receive I1, send R1 and stay at CLOSED
   Receive I2, process
       if successful, send R2 and go to R2-SENT
       if fail, stay at CLOSED

   Receive R1, process
       if successful, send HIP
   packet, but does not reset its state until it receives the I2 and go HIP
   packet.  The I2 packet MUST have a valid solution to I2-SENT the puzzle and,
   if fail, stay at CLOSED

   Receive CLOSE, process
       if successful, send CLOSE_ACK, stay at CLOSED
       if failed, stay at CLOSED

   Receive CLOSE_ACK, process
       if successful, discard state and go inserted in R1, a valid Opaque data as well as a valid signature.
   Note that either the original Initiator or the Responder could end up
   restarting the exchange, becoming the new Initiator.

   If a system receives a user data packet that cannot be matched to UNASSOCIATED
       if failed, stay at CLOSED

   Receive ANYOTHER, drop and stay at CLOSED

   Timeout (UAL + 2MSL), discard any
   existing HIP association, it is possible that it has lost the state
   and go to UNASSOCIATED

   | E-FAILED | HIP failed its peer has not.  It MAY send an ICMP packet with the Parameter
   Problem type, the Pointer pointing to establish the referred HIP-related
   association with peer

   Move information.  Reacting to UNASSOCIATED after an such traffic depends on the
   implementation and the environment where the implementation specific time.  Re-negotiation is possible after moving to UNASSOCIATED state.

5.4.3  Simplified used.

   After sending the I1, the HIP State Diagram negotiation proceeds as normally and,
   when successful, the SA is created at the initiating end.  The following diagram shows peer
   end removes the major state transitions.  Transitions
   based on received packets implicitly assume that OLD SA and replaces it with the packets are
   successfully authenticated new one.

4.6  Certificate Distribution

   +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

   The HIP header is logically an IPv6 extension header.  However, this
   document does not describe processing for Next Header values other
   than decimal 59, IPPROTO_NONE, the IPV6 no next header value.  Future
   documents MAY do so.  However, implementations MUST ignore trailing
   data if an unimplemented Next Header value is received.

   The Header Length field contains the length of the HIP Header and HIP
   parameters in 8 bytes units, excluding the first 8 bytes.  Since all
   HIP headers MUST contain the sender's and receiver's HIT fields, the
   minimum value for this field is 4, and conversely, the maximum length
   of the HIP Parameters field is (255*8)-32 = 2008 bytes.  Note: this
   sets an additional limit for sizes of TLVs included in the Parameters
   field, independent of the individual TLV parameter maximum lengths.

   The Packet Type indicates the HIP packet type.  The individual packet
   types are defined in the relevant sections.  If a HIP host receives a
   HIP packet that contains an unknown packet type, it MUST drop the
   packet.

   The HIP Version is four bits.  The current version is 1.  The version
   number is expected to be incremented only if there are incompatible
   changes to the protocol.  Most extensions can be handled by defining
   new packet types, new parameter types, or new controls.

   The following four bits are reserved for future use.  They MUST be
   zero when sent, and they SHOULD be ignored when handling a received
   packet.

   The HIT fields are always 128 bits (16 bytes) long.

6.1.1

5.1.1  HIP Controls

   The HIP control Controls section transfers conveys information about the structure of
   the packet and capabilities of the host.

   The following fields have been defined:

      +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
      | SHT | DHT | | | | | | | | |C|A| | |A|
      +-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

   C

   SHT - Certificate One or more certificate packets (CER) follows this
      HIP packet (see Section 7.5).
   A Sender's HIT Type:  Currently the following values are
      specified:

         0 RESERVED

         1 Type 1 HIT

         2 Type 2 HIT

         3-6 UNASSIGNED

         7 RESERVED

   DHT - Anonymous If this is set, Destination's HIT Type:  Uses the sender's same values as the SHT.

   A - Anonymous:  If this is set, the sender's HI in this packet is
      anonymous, i.e., one not listed in a directory.  Anonymous HIs
      SHOULD NOT be stored.  This control is set in packets R1 and/or
      I2.  The peer receiving an anonymous HI may choose to refuse it.
   SHT - Sender's HIT Type Currently the following values are specified:
         0 RESERVED
         1 Type 1 HIT
         2 Type 2 HIT
         3-6 UNASSIGNED
         7 RESERVED
   DHT - Destination's HIT Type Using the same values as SHT.

   The rest of the fields are reserved for future use and MUST be set to
   zero on sent packets and ignored on received packets.

6.1.2

5.1.2  Checksum

   The checksum field is located at the same location within in the header as
   the checksum field in UDP packets, enabling aiding hardware assisted checksum
   generation and verification.  Note that since the checksum covers the
   source and destination addresses in the IP header, it must be
   recomputed on HIP-aware NAT boxes. devices.

   If IPv6 is used to carry the HIP packet, the pseudo-header [11]
   contains the source and destination IPv6 addresses, HIP packet length
   in the pseudo-header length field, a zero field, and the HIP protocol
   number (TBD, see Section 4) in the Next Header field.  The length
   field is in bytes and can be calculated from the HIP header length
   field: (HIP Header Length + 1) * 8.

   In case of using IPv4, the IPv4 UDP pseudo header format [1] is used.
   In the pseudo header, the source and destination addresses are those
   used in the IP header, the zero field is obviously zero, the protocol
   is the HIP protocol number (TBD, see Section 4), and the length is
   calculated as in the IPv6 case.

6.2

5.1.3  HIP parameters Fragmentation Support

   A HIP implementation must support IP fragmentation / reassembly.
   Fragment reassembly MUST be implemented in both IPv4 and IPv6, but
   fragment generation MUST be implemented only in IPv4 (IPv4 stacks and
   networks will usually do this by default) and SHOULD be implemented
   in IPv6.  In IPv6 networks, the minimum MTU is larger, 1280 bytes,
   than in IPv4 networks.  The larger MTU size is usually sufficient for
   most HIP Parameters packets, and therefore fragment generation may not be
   needed.  If a host expects to send HIP packets that are used larger than
   the minimum IPv6 MTU, it MUST implement fragment generation even for
   IPv6.

   In IPv4 networks, HIP packets may encounter low MTUs along their
   routed path.  Since HIP does not provide a mechanism to carry use multiple
   IP datagrams for a single HIP packet, support for path MTU discovery
   does not bring any value to HIP in IPv4 networks.  HIP-aware NAT
   devices MUST perform any IPv4 reassembly/fragmentation.

   All HIP implementations MUST employ a reassembly algorithm that is
   sufficiently resistant to DoS attacks.

5.1.4  Solving the public key associated with Puzzle

   This subsection describes the sender's HIT, together with other related security puzzle solving details.

   In R1, the values I and other
   information.  The HIP Parameters consists of ordered parameters,
   encoded K are sent in TLV format. network byte order.  Similarly,
   in I2 the values I and J are sent in network byte order.  The SHA-1
   hash is created by concatenating, in network byte order, the
   following data, in the following order:

      64-bit random value I, in network byte order, as appearing in R1
      and I2.

      128-bit Initiator HIT, in network byte order, as appearing in the
      HIP Payload in R1 and I2.

      128-bit Responder HIT, in network byte order, as appearing in the
      HIP Payload in R1 and I2.

      64-bit random value J, in network byte order, as appearing in I2.

   In order to be a valid response cookie, the K low-order bits of the
   resulting SHA-1 digest must be zero.

   Notes:

      i) The length of the data to be hashed is 48 bytes.

      ii) All the data in the hash input MUST be in network byte order.

      iii) The order of the Initiator and Responder HITs are different
      in the R1 and I2 packets, see Section 5.1.  Care must be taken to
      copy the values in right order to the hash input.

   The following procedure describes the processing steps involved,
   assuming that the Responder chooses to precompute the R1 packets:

   Precomputation by the Responder:
      Sets up the puzzle difficulty K.
      Creates a signed R1 and caches it.

   Responder:
      Selects a suitable cached R1.
      Generates a random number I.
      Sends I and K in an R1.
      Saves I and K for a Delta time.

   Initiator:
      Generates repeated attempts to solve the puzzle until a matching J
      is found:
      Ltrunc( SHA-1( I | HIT-I | HIT-R | J ), K ) == 0
      Sends I and J in an I2.

   Responder:
      Verifies that the received I is a saved one.
      Finds the right K based on I.
      Computes V := Ltrunc( SHA-1( I | HIT-I | HIT-R | J ), K )
      Rejects if V != 0
      Accept if V == 0

5.2  HIP Parameters

   The HIP Parameters are used to carry the public key associated with
   the sender's HIT, together with related security and other
   information.  They consist of ordered parameters, encoded in TLV
   format.

   The following parameter types are currently defined.

6.2.1

   Because the ordering (from lowest to highest) of HIP parameters is
   strictly enforced, the parameter type values for existing parameters
   have been spaced to allow for future protocol extensions.  Parameters
   numbered between 0-1023 are used in HIP handshake and update
   procedures and are covered by signatures.  Parameters numbered
   between 1024-2047 are reserved.  Parameters numbered between 2048-
   4095 are used for parameters related to HIP transform types.
   Parameters numbered between 4096 and (2^16 - 2^12) 61439 are
   reserved.  Parameters numbered beteween 61440-62463 are used for
   signatures and signed MACs.  Parameters numbered between 62464-63487
   are used for parameters that fall outside of the signed area of the
   packet.  Parameters numbered between 63488-64511 are used for
   rendezvous and other relaying services.  Parameters numbered between
   64512-65535 are reserved.

5.2.1  TLV format Format

   The TLV encoded TLV-encoded parameters are described in the following
   subsections.  The type-field value also describes the order of these
   fields in the packet, except for type values from 2048 to 4095 which
   are reserved for new transport forms.  The parameters MUST be
   included into in the packet so such that the their types form an increasing
   order.  If the order does not follow this rule, the packet is
   considered to be malformed and it MUST be discarded.

   Parameters using type values from 2048 up to 4095 are transport
   formats.  Currently, one transport format is defined: the ESP
   transport format [23]. [24].  The order of these parameters does not follow
   the order of their type value, but they are put in the packet in
   order of preference.  First one  The first of the transport formats it the most
   preferred, and so on.

   All of the TLV parameters have a length (including Type and Length
   fields) which is a multiple of 8 bytes.  When needed, padding MUST be
   added to the end of the parameter so that the total length becomes a
   multiple of 8 bytes.  This rule ensures proper alignment of data.  If
   padding is added, the Length field MUST NOT include the padding.  Any
   added padding bytes MUST be set zero zeroed by the sender, but and their content values
   SHOULD NOT be checked on by the receiving end. receiver.

   Consequently, the Length field indicates the length of the Contents
   field (in bytes).  The total length of the TLV parameter (including
   Type, Length, Contents, and Padding) is related to the Length field
   according to the following formula:

   Total Length = 11 + Length - (Length + 3) % 8;

                   The C bit is considered to be a part of the Type
                   field. Consequently, critical parameters are always
                   odd and non-critical ones have an even value.

   Critical parameters MUST be recognized by the recipient.  If a
   recipient encounters a critical parameter that it does not recognize,
   it MUST NOT process the packet any further.  It MAY send an ICMP or
   NOTIFY, as defined in Section 4.4. 4.3.

   Non-critical parameters MAY be safely ignored.  If a recipient
   encounters a non-critical parameter that it does not recognize, it
   SHOULD proceed as if the parameter was not present in the received
   packet.

6.2.2

5.2.2  Defining new parameters New Parameters

   Future specifications may define new parameters as needed.  When
   defining new parameters, care must be taken to ensure that the
   parameter type values are appropriate and leave suitable space for
   other future extensions.  One must remember that the parameters MUST
   always be arranged in the increasing order by the type code, thereby
   limiting the order of parameters.

   The following rules must be followed when defining new parameters.

   1.  The low order bit C of the Type code is used to distinguish
       between critical and non-critical parameters.

   2.  A new parameter may be critical only if an old recipient ignoring
       it would cause security problems.  In general, new parameters
       SHOULD be defined as non-critical, and expect a reply from the
       recipient.

   3.  If a system implements a new critical parameter, it MUST provide
       the ability to configure the associated feature off, such that
       the critical parameter is not sent at all.  The configuration
       option must be well documented.  By default, sending of such a
       new critical parameter SHOULD be off.  In other words, the
       management interface MUST allow vanilla standards-only mode as a
       default configuration setting, and MAY allow new critical
       payloads to be configured on (and off).

   4.  The following type codes are reserved for future base protocol
       extensions, and may be assigned only through an appropriate WG or
       RFC action.
          0 - 511
          65024 - 65535
   5.  The following type codes are reserved for experimentation and
       private use.  Types SHOULD be selected in a random fashion from
       this range, thereby reducing the probability of collisions.  A
       method employing genuine randomness (such as flipping a coin)
       SHOULD be used.
          32768 - 49141
   6.  All other parameter type codes MUST be registered by the IANA.  See section Section 13.

6.2.3 9 for allocation rules regarding type codes.

   The R1_COUNTER parameter contains an 64-bit unsigned integer in
   network byte order, indicating the current generation of valid
   puzzles.  The sender is supposed to increment this counter
   periodically.  It is RECOMMENDED that the counter value is
   incremented at least as often as old PUZZLE values are deprecated so
   that SOLUTIONs to them are no longer accepted.

   The R1_COUNTER parameter is optional.  It SHOULD be included in the
   R1 (in which case it is covered by the signature), and if present in
   the R1, it MAY be echoed (including the Reserved field in verbatim) by
   the Initiator in the I2.

   an ECHO_REQUEST parameter to an R1.  The included in the R1; the contents of the
   ECHO_REQUEST are then echoed back in the ECHO_RESPONSE, allowing the
   Responder to use the included information as a part of its puzzle
   processing.

   The Opaque and Random #I field are not covered by the HIP_SIGNATURE_2

   is defined in [9].  The OAKLEY well known group 5 is the same as the
   1536-bit MODP group.

   A HIP implementation MUST support Group IDs 1 and 3.  The 384-bit
   group can be used when lower security is enough (e.g. web surfing)
   and when the equipment is not powerful enough (e.g. some PDAs).
   Equipment powerful enough SHOULD implement also group ID 5.  The
   384-bit 384-
   bit group is defined in Appendix E. F.

   To avoid unnecessary failures during the base exchange, the rest of
   the groups SHOULD be implemented in hosts where resources are
   adequate.

                     signature is calculated.

   Zeroing the Initiator's HIT makes it possible to create R1 packets
   beforehand to minimize the effects of possible DoS attacks.  Zeroing
   the I and Opaque fields allows these fields to be populated
   dynamically on precomputed R1s.

   To avoid certain types of attacks, a Responder SHOULD avoid sending a
   NOTIFY to any host with which it has not successfully verified a
   puzzle solution.

   Types in the range 0 - 16383 are intended for reporting errors.  An
   implementation that receives a NOTIFY error parameter in response to
   a request packet (e.g., I1, I2, UPDATE), SHOULD assume that the
   corresponding request has failed entirely.  Unrecognized error types
   MUST be ignored except that they SHOULD be logged.

6.3  ICMP messages

   When a HIP implementation detects a problem with an incoming packet,
   and it either cannot determine the identity of the sender of the
   packet or does not have any existing HIP association with the sender
   of the packet, it MAY respond with an ICMP packet.  Any such replies
   MUST be rate limited as described in [4].  In most cases, the ICMP
   packet will have the Parameter Problem type (12 for ICMPv4, 4 for
   ICMPv6), with the Pointer field pointing to the field that caused the
   ICMP message to be generated.

6.3.1  Invalid Version

   If a HIP implementation receives a HIP packet that has an
   unrecognized HIP version number, it SHOULD respond, rate limited,
   with an ICMP packet with type Parameter Problem, the Pointer pointing
   to the VER./RES.  byte in the

5.3  HIP header.

6.3.2  Other problems with Packets

   There are eight basic HIP packets.  Four are for the HIP header base
   exchange, one is for updating, one is for sending notifications, and packet structure

   If a HIP implementation receives
   two for closing a HIP packet that has association.

   Packets consist of the fixed header as described in Section 5.1,
   followed by the parameters.  The parameter part, in turn, consists of
   zero or more TLV coded parameters.

   In addition to the base packets, other
   unrecoverable problems packets types will be defined
   later in separate specifications.  For example, support for mobility
   and multi-homing is not included in this specification.

   Packet representation uses the header following operations:

      ()      parameter
      x{y}    operation x on content y
      <x>i    x exists i times
      []      optional parameter
      x | y   x or packet format, it MAY
   respond, rate limited, with an ICMP packet with type Parameter
   Problem, y
   In the Pointer pointing to future, an OPTIONAL upper layer payload MAY follow the HIP
   header.  The Next Header field that failed to pass in the
   format checks.  However, an implementation MUST NOT send an ICMP
   message header indicates if there is
   additional data following the Checksum fails; instead, it HIP header.  The HIP packet, however,
   MUST silently drop NOT be fragmented.  This limits the
   packet.

6.3.3  Invalid Cookie Solution

   If a HIP implementation receives an I2 packet that has an invalid
   cookie solution, size of the behaviour depends on possible
   additional data in the underlying version of
   IP.  If IPv6 is used, packet.

5.3.1  I1 - the implementation SHOULD respond with an ICMP HIP Initiator Packet

   The HIP header values for the I1 packet:

      Header:
        Packet Type = 1
        SRC HIT = Initiator's HIT
        DST HIT = Responder's HIT, or NULL

      IP ( HIP () )

   The I1 packet with type Parameter Problem, contains only the Pointer pointing to fixed HIP header.

   Valid control bits: none

   The Initiator gets the
   beginning Responder's HIT either from a DNS lookup of
   the Puzzle solution #J field in Responder's FQDN, from some other repository, or from a local
   table.  If the SOLUTION payload in Initiator does not know the HIP message.

   If IPv4 is used, Responder's HIT, it may
   attempt opportunistic mode by using NULL (all zeros) as the implementation MAY respond with an ICMP packet
   with
   Responder's HIT.  If the type Parameter Problem, copying enough of bytes form Initiator sends a NULL as the I2
   message Responder's
   HIT, it MUST be able to handle all MUST and SHOULD algorithms from
   Section 3, which are currently RSA and DSA.

   Since this packet is so that the SOLUTION parameter fits in easy to the ICMP message,
   the Pointer pointing spoof even if it were signed, no
   attempt is made to the beginning add to its generation or processing cost.

   Implementations MUST be able to handle a storm of the Puzzle solution #J
   field, as in the IPv6 case.  Note, however, received I1
   packets, discarding those with common content that arrive within a
   small time delta.

5.3.2  R1 - the resulting ICMPv4
   message exceeds the typical ICMPv4 message size as defined in [2].

6.3.4  Non-existing HIP association

   If a Responder Packet

   The HIP implementation receives a CLOSE, or UPDATE packet, or any
   other packet whose handling requires an existing association, that
   has either a Receiver or Sender header values for the R1 packet:

      Header:
        Packet Type = 2
        SRC HIT = Responder's HIT that does not match with any
   existing
        DST HIT = Initiator's HIT

      IP ( HIP association, ( [ R1_COUNTER, ]
                 PUZZLE,
                 DIFFIE_HELLMAN,
                 HIP_TRANSFORM,
                 HOST_ID,
                 [ ECHO_REQUEST, ]
                 HIP_SIGNATURE_2 )
                 [, ECHO_REQUEST ])

   Valid control bits: C, A

   If the implementation MAY respond, rate
   limited, with Responder HI is an ICMP packet with the type Parameter Problem, anonymous one, the
   Pointer pointing to A control MUST be set.

   The Initiator HIT MUST match the one received in I1.  If the beginning of
   Responder has multiple HIs, the first Responder HIT that does not
   match.

   A host used MUST NOT reply with such an ICMP if it receives any of the
   following messages: I1, R2, I2, R2, CER, and NOTIFY.  When
   introducing new packet types, a specification SHOULD define match
   Initiator's request.  If the
   appropriate rules for sending or not sending this kind of ICMP
   replies.

7.  HIP Packets

   There are nine basic HIP packets.  Four are for Initiator used opportunistic mode, the HIP base
   exchange, one
   Responder may select freely among its HIs.

   The R1 generation counter is for updating, one used to determine the currently valid
   generation of puzzles.  The value is for sending certificates, one
   for sending notifications, increased periodically, and two for closing a HIP association.

   Packets consist of the fixed header it
   is RECOMMENDED that it is increased at least as described in Section 6.1,
   followed by the parameters.  The parameter part, in turn, consists of
   zero or more TLV coded parameters.

   In addition often as solutions to the base packets, other packets types will be defined
   later in separate specifications.  For example, support for mobility
   old puzzles are no longer accepted.

   The Puzzle contains a random #I and multi-homing is not included in this specification.

   Packet representation uses the following operations:

      ()      parameter
      x{y}    operation x on content y
      <x>i    x exists i times
      []      optional parameter
      x | y   x or y

   In difficulty K. The difficulty
   K is the future, an OPTIONAL upper layer payload MAY follow number of bits that the HIP
   header.  The payload proto field Initiator must get zero in the header indicates if there
   puzzle.  The random #I is
   additional data following not covered by the HIP header.  The HIP packet, however,
   MUST NOT signature and must be fragmented.  This limits
   zeroed during the size of signature calculation, allowing the possible
   additional data in sender to
   select and set the packet.

7.1  I1 - #I into a pre-computed R1 just prior sending it to
   the HIP initiator packet peer.

   The HIP header values Diffie-Hellman value is ephemeral, but can be reused over a
   number of connections.  In fact, as a defense against I1 storms, an
   implementation MAY use the same Diffie-Hellman value for a period of
   time, for example, 15 minutes.  By using a small number of different
   Cookies for a given Diffie-Hellman value, the R1 packets can be pre-
   computed and delivered as quickly as I1 packet:

      Header:
        Packet Type = 1
        SRC HIT = Initiator's HIT
        DST HIT = Responder's HIT, or NULL

      IP ( HIP () ) packets arrive.  A scavenger
   process should clean up unused DHs and Cookies.

   The HIP_TRANSFORM contains the encryption and integrity algorithms
   supported by the Responder to protect the HI exchange, in the order
   of preference.  All implementations MUST support the AES [19] with
   HMAC-SHA-1-96 [6].

   The I1 packet ECHO_REQUEST contains only data that the fixed HIP header.

   Valid control bits: none

   The Initiator gets sender wants to receive
   unmodified in the Responder's HIT corresponding response packet in the ECHO_RESPONSE
   parameter.  The ECHO_REQUEST can be either from a DNS lookup of covered by the Responder's FQDN, from some other repository, signature,
   or it can be left out from a local
   table.  If it.  In the Initiator does not know first case, the Responder's HIT, it may
   attempt opportunistic mode by using NULL (all zeros) as ECHO_REQUEST
   gets Type number 897 and in the
   Responder's HIT.  If latter case 63661.

   The signature is calculated over the whole HIP envelope, after
   setting the Initiator send a NULL HIT, header checksum as well as the Responder's
   HIT, it MUST be able Opaque
   field and the Random #I in the PUZZLE parameter temporarily to handle all MUST zero,
   and SHOULD algorithms from excluding any TLVs that follow the signature, as described in
   Section 3, which are currently RSA and DSA.

   Since this packet is so easy to spoof even if it were signed, no
   attempt is made to add to its generation or processing cost.

   Implementation MUST be able 5.2.12.  This allows the Responder to handle a storm of use precomputed R1s.
   The Initiator SHOULD validate this signature.  It SHOULD check that
   the Responder HI received I1 packets,
   discarding those matches with common content that arrive within a small time
   delta.

7.2  R1 the one expected, if any.

5.3.3  I2 - the Second HIP responder packet Initiator Packet

   The HIP header values for the R1 I2 packet:

      Header:
        Packet
        Type = 2 3
        SRC HIT = Responder's Initiator's HIT
        DST HIT = Initiator's Responder's HIT

      IP ( HIP ( [ R1_COUNTER, ]
                 PUZZLE, [R1_COUNTER,]
                 SOLUTION,
                 DIFFIE_HELLMAN,
                 HIP_TRANSFORM,
                 ENCRYPTED { HOST_ID } or HOST_ID,
                 [ ECHO_REQUEST, ]
                 HIP_SIGNATURE_2 )

                 HIP_SIGNATURE
                 [, ECHO_REQUEST ]) ECHO_RESPONSE] ) )

   Valid control bits: C, A

   The R1 packet may be followed by one or more CER packets.  In this
   case, the C-bit in the control field HITs used MUST be set. match the ones used previously.

   If the responder Initiator HI is an anonymous one, the A control MUST be set.

   The initiator HIT MUST match Initiator MAY include an unmodified copy of the one R1_COUNTER
   parameter received in I1.  If the
   Responder has multiple HIs, the responder HIT used MUST match
   Initiator's request.  If the Initiator used opportunistic mode, the
   Responder may select freely among its HIs.

   The corresponding R1 generation counter is used to determine packet into the currently valid
   generation of puzzles.  The value is increased periodically, and it
   is RECOMMENDED that it is increased at least as often as solutions to
   old puzzles are not accepted any longer. I2 packet.

   The Puzzle Solution contains a the random #I # I from R1 and the difficulty K. computed # J.
   The difficulty low order K is the number of bits that the Initiator must get zero in the
   puzzle.  The random #I is not covered by the signature and must be
   zeroed during the signature calculation, allowing the sender to
   select and set the #I into a pre-computed R1 just prior sending it to
   the peer.

   The Diffie-Hellman value is ephemeral, but can be reused over a
   number of connections.  In fact, as a defense against I1 storms, an
   implementation MAY use the same Diffie-Hellman value for a period of
   time, for example, 15 minutes.  By using a small number of different
   Cookies for a given Diffie-Hellman value, the R1 packets can be
   pre-computed and delivered as quickly as I1 packets arrive.  A the SHA-1(I | ... | J) MUST be zero.

   The Diffie-Hellman value is ephemeral.  If precomputed, a scavenger
   process should clean up unused DHs and Cookies. DHs.

   The HIP_TRANSFORM contains the single encryption and integrity algorithms
   supported
   transform selected by the Responder Initiator, that will be used to protect the
   HI exchange, exchange.  The chosen transform MUST correspond to one offered by
   the Responder in the order
   of preference. R1.  All implementations MUST support the AES [10] with
   HMAC-SHA-1-96 [6].
   transform [19].

   The ECHO_REQUEST Initiator's HI MAY be encrypted using the HIP_TRANSFORM
   encryption algorithm.  The keying material is derived from the
   Diffie-Hellman exchanged as defined in Section 6.4.

   The ECHO_RESPONSE contains data that the sender wants to receive the unmodified in Opaque data copied from
   the corresponding response packet in the ECHO_RESPONSE
   parameter.  The ECHO_REQUEST TLV.  The ECHO_RESPONSE can be either
   covered by the signature, HMAC and SIGNATURE or it can be left out from it. not covered.  In the first former
   case, the ECHO_REQUEST ECHO_RESPONSE gets Type number 1022 and 961, in the latter case 65281. it is
   63425.

   The HMAC is calculated over whole HIP envelope, excluding any TLVs
   after the HMAC, as described in Section 6.3.1.  The Responder MUST
   validate the HMAC.

   The signature is calculated over whole HIP envelope, excluding any
   TLVs after the HIP_SIGNATURE, as described in Section 5.2.11.  The
   Responder MUST validate this signature.  It MAY use either the HI in
   the packet or the HI acquired by some other means.

5.3.4  R2 - the Second HIP Responder Packet

   The HIP header values for the R2 packet:

      Header:
        Packet Type = 4
        SRC HIT = Responder's HIT
        DST HIT = Initiator's HIT

      IP ( HIP ( HMAC_2, HIP_SIGNATURE ) )

   Valid control bits: none

   The HMAC_2 is calculated over whole HIP envelope, with Responder's
   HOST_ID TLV concatenated with the HIP envelope.  The HOST_ID TLV is
   removed after the HMAC calculation.  The procedure is described in
   8.3.1.

   The signature is calculated over the whole HIP envelope, after
   setting the initiator HIT, header checksum as well as the Opaque
   field and the Random #I in the PUZZLE parameter temporarily to zero,
   and excluding any TLVs that follow the signature, as described in
   Section 6.2.13.  This allows the Responder to use precomputed R1s. envelope.

   The Initiator SHOULD MUST validate this signature.  It SHOULD check that both the responder HI received matches with HMAC and the one expected, if any.

7.3  I2 signature.

5.3.5  UPDATE - the second HIP initiator Update Packet

   Support for the UPDATE packet is MANDATORY.

   The HIP header values for the I2 UPDATE packet:

                 ENCRYPTED { HOST_ID },
                 [ ECHO_RESPONSE ,] [SEQ, ACK, ] HMAC, HIP_SIGNATURE
                 [, ECHO_RESPONSE] ) )

   Valid control bits: C, A

   The HITs used MUST match the ones used previously.

   If the initiator HI is an anonymous one, the A control MUST be set. None

   The Initiator MAY include an unmodified copy of the R1_COUNTER
   parameter received in the corresponding R1 UPDATE packet into the I2 packet.

   The Solution contains the random # I from R1 mandatory HMAC and the computed # J. HIP_SIGNATURE
   parameters, and other optional parameters.

   The low order K bits of the SHA-1(I | ...  | J) MUST be zero. UPDATE packet contains zero or one SEQ parameter.  The Diffie-Hellman value is ephemeral.  If precomputed, presence
   of a scavenger
   process should clean up unused DHs.

   The HIP_TRANSFORM contains the encryption and integrity used to
   protect the HI exchange selected by SEQ parameter indicates that the Initiator.  All
   implementations receiver MUST support the AES transform [10].

   The Initiator's HI is encrypted using ack the HIP_TRANSFORM encryption
   algorithm.  The keying material UPDATE.
   An UPDATE that does not contain a SEQ parameter is derived from the Diffie-Hellman
   exchanged as defined in Section 9.

   The ECHO_RESPONSE simply an ACK of a
   previous UPDATE and itself MUST not be acked.

   An UPDATE packet contains zero or one ACK parameters.  The ACK
   parameter echoes the SEQ sequence number of the unmodified Opaque data copied from UPDATE packet being
   acked.  A host MAY choose to ack more than one UPDATE packet at a
   time; e.g., the ACK may contain the last two SEQ values received, for
   robustness to ack loss.  ACK values are not cumulative; each received
   unique SEQ value requires at least one corresponding ECHO_REQUEST TLV. ACK value in
   reply.  Received ACKs that are redundant are ignored.

   The ECHO_RESPONSE can be either
   covered by the signature, or it can be left out from it. UPDATE packet may contain both a SEQ and an ACK parameter.  In the
   first
   this case, the ECHO_RESPONSE gets Type number 1024 and in the latter
   case 65283.

   The HMAC ACK is calculated over whole HIP envelope, excluding any TLVs
   after being piggybacked on an outgoing UPDATE.  In
   general, UPDATEs carrying SEQ SHOULD be acked upon completion of the HMAC, as described in Section 8.3.1.  The Responder MUST
   validate
   processing of the HMAC.

   The signature is calculated over whole HIP envelope, excluding any
   TLVs after UPDATE.  A host MAY choose to hold the HIP_SIGNATURE, as described UPDATE
   carrying ACK for a short period of time to allow for the possibility
   of piggybacking the ACK parameter, in Section 6.2.12. a manner similar to TCP delayed
   acknowledgments.

   A sender MAY choose to forego reliable transmission of a particular
   UPDATE (e.g., it becomes overcome by events).  The
   Responder semantics are such
   that the receiver MUST validate this signature.  It acknowledge the UPDATE but the sender MAY use either
   choose to not care about receiving the HI ACK.

   UPDATEs MAY be retransmitted without incrementing SEQ.  If the same
   subset of parameters is included in multiple UPDATEs with different
   SEQs, the packet or host MUST ensure that receiver processing of the HI acquired by some other means.

   multiple times will not result in a protocol error.

5.3.6  NOTIFY - the second HIP responder Notify Packet

   The NOTIFY packet is OPTIONAL.  The NOTIFY packet MAY be used to
   provide information to a peer.  Typically, NOTIFY is used to indicate
   some type of protocol error or negotiation failure.

   The HIP header values for the R2 NOTIFY packet:

      Header:

   Valid control bits: none

   The HMAC_2 is calculated over whole HIP envelope, with Responder's
   HOST_ID TLV concatenated with the HIP envelope.  The HOST_ID TLV is
   removed after the HMAC calculation.  The procedure is described in
   8.3.1. None

   The signature NOTIFY packet is calculated over whole HIP envelope.

   The UPDATE packet contains mandatory sender MUST include both an HMAC and HIP_SIGNATURE
   parameters, and other optional parameters.

   The UPDATE packet contains zero or one SEQ parameter.  The presence
   of a SEQ parameter indicates that signature (calculated over
   the whole HIP envelope).

   The receiver peer MUST ack validate both the UPDATE.
   An UPDATE that does not contain a SEQ parameter is simply an ACK of a
   previous UPDATE HMAC and itself MUST not be acked.

   An UPDATE packet contains zero or one ACK parameters.  The ACK
   parameter echoes the SEQ sequence number of the UPDATE packet being
   acked.  A host MAY choose to ack more than one UPDATE packet at a
   time; e.g., the ACK may contain the last two SEQ values received, for
   robustness to ack loss.  ACK values are not cumulative; each received
   unique SEQ value requires at least one corresponding ACK value in
   reply.  Received ACKs that are redundant are ignored.

   The UPDATE packet may contain both signature.

5.4  ICMP Messages

   When a SEQ and an ACK parameter.  In
   this case, the ACK is being piggybacked on an outgoing UPDATE.  In
   general, UPDATEs carrying SEQ SHOULD be acked upon completion HIP implementation detects a problem with an incoming packet,
   and it either cannot determine the identity of the
   processing sender of the UPDATE.  A host
   packet or does not have any existing HIP association with the sender
   of the packet, it MAY choose to hold respond with an ICMP packet.  Any such replies
   MUST be rate limited as described in [4].  In most cases, the UPDATE
   carrying ACK ICMP
   packet will have the Parameter Problem type (12 for a short period of time to allow ICMPv4, 4 for
   ICMPv6), with the possibility
   of piggybacking Pointer field pointing to the ACK parameter, in a manner similar field that caused the
   ICMP message to TCP delayed
   acknowledgments.

   A sender MAY choose be generated.

5.4.1  Invalid Version

   If a HIP implementation receives a HIP packet that has an
   unrecognized HIP version number, it SHOULD respond, rate limited,
   with an ICMP packet with type Parameter Problem, the Pointer pointing
   to forego reliable transmission of the VER./RES. byte in the HIP header.

5.4.2  Other Problems with the HIP Header and Packet Structure

   If a particular
   UPDATE (e.g., HIP implementation receives a HIP packet that has other
   unrecoverable problems in the header or packet format, it becomes overcome by events).  The semantics are such MAY
   respond, rate limited, with an ICMP packet with type Parameter
   Problem, the Pointer pointing to the field that failed to pass the receiver
   format checks.  However, an implementation MUST acknowledge NOT send an ICMP
   message if the UPDATE but Checksum fails; instead, it MUST silently drop the sender MAY
   choose to not care about receiving

   field, as in the IPv6 case.  Note, however, that the resulting ICMPv4
   message exceeds the typical ICMPv4 message size as defined in response, and both an HMAC and [2].

5.4.4  Non-existing HIP Association

   If a signature (calculated
   over the whole HIP envelope).

   The receiver peer MUST validate both the HMAC and the signature if it implementation receives a CLOSE, or UPDATE packet, or any
   other packet whose handling requires an existing association, that
   has either a Receiver or Sender HIT that does not match with any
   existing HIP association state, and MUST reply association, the implementation MAY respond, rate
   limited, with a CLOSE_ACK
   containing an ECHO_REPLY corresponding ICMP packet with the type Parameter Problem, the
   Pointer pointing to the received ECHO_REQUEST.

7.9  CLOSE_ACK - the HIP closing acknowledgment packet

      IP ( HIP ( ECHO_REPLY, HMAC, HIP_SIGNATURE ) )

   Valid control bits: none
   The sender that does not
   match.

   A host MUST include both NOT reply with such an HMAC and signature (calculated over
   the whole HIP envelope).

   The receiver peer MUST validate both ICMP if it receives any of the HMAC
   following messages: I1, R2, I2, R2, and NOTIFY.  When introducing new
   packet types, a specification SHOULD define the signature.

8. appropriate rules for
   sending or not sending this kind of ICMP replies.

6.  Packet processing Processing

   Each host is assumed to have a single HIP protocol implementation
   that manages the host's HIP associations and handles requests for new
   ones.  Each HIP association is governed by a conceptual state
   machine, with states defined above in Section 5.4. 4.4.  The HIP
   implementation can simultaneously maintain HIP associations with more
   than one host.  Furthermore, the HIP implementation may have more
   than one active HIP association with another host; in this case, HIP
   associations are distinguished by their respective HITs.  It is not
   possible to have more than one HIP associations association between any given pair
   of HITs.  Consequently, the only way for two hosts to have more than
   one parallel association is to use different HITs, at least at one
   end.

   The processing of packets depends on the state of the HIP
   association(s) with respect to the authenticated or apparent
   originator of the packet.  A HIP implementation determines whether it
   has an active association with the originator of the packet based on
   the HITs.  In the case of user data carried in a specific transport
   format, the transport format document specifies how the incoming
   packets are matched with the active associations.

8.1

6.1  Processing outgoing application data Outgoing Application Data

   In a HIP host, an application can send application level data using
   HITs or LSIs local scope identifiers (LSIs) as source and destination
   identifiers.  The HITs and LSIs may be specified via a backwards
   compatible API (see [29]) [32]) or a completely new API.  The exact format
   and method for transferring the data from the source HIP host to the
   destination HIP host is defined in the corresponding transport format
   document.  The actual data is transmitted in the network using the
   appropriate source and destination IP addresses.  Here, we specify
   the processing rules only for the base case where both hosts have
   only single usable IP addresses; the multi-address multi-homing case
   will be specified separately.

   If the IPv4 or IPv6 backward compatible APIs and therefore LSIs are
   supported, it is assumed that the LSIs will be converted into proper
   HITs somewhere in the stack.  The exact location of the conversion is
   an implementation specific issue and not discussed here.  The
   following conceptual algorithm discusses only HITs, with the
   assumption that the LSI-to-HIT conversion takes place somewhere.

   The following steps define the conceptual processing rules for
   outgoing datagrams destined to a HIT.

   1.  If the datagram has a specified source address, it MUST be a HIT.
       If it is not, the implementation MAY replace the source address
       with a HIT.  Otherwise it MUST drop the packet.

   2.  If the datagram has an unspecified source address, the
       implementation must choose a suitable source HIT for the
       datagram.  In selecting a proper local HIT, the implementation
       SHOULD consult the table of currently active HIP sessions, and
       preferably select a HIT that already has an active session with
       the target HIT.

   3.  If there is no active HIP session with the given < source,
       destination > HIT pair, one must be created by running the base
       exchange.  The base
       exchange.  While waiting for the base exchange to complete, the
       implementation SHOULD queue at least one packet per HIP session
       to be formed, and it MAY queue more than one.

   4.  Once there is an active HIP session for the given < source,
       destination > HIT pair, the outgoing datagram is passed to
       transport handling.  The possible transport formats are defined
       in separate documents, of which the ESP transport format for HIP
       is mandatory for all HIP implementations.

   5.  The  Before sending the packet, the HITs in the datagram are replaced
       with suitable IP addresses.  For IPv6, the rules defined in [16]
       SHOULD be followed.  Note that this HIT-to-IP-address conversion
       step MAY also be performed at some other point in the stack,
       e.g., before wrapping the packet into the output format.

8.2

6.2  Processing incoming application data Incoming Application Data

   The transport format and method (defined in separate specifications)
   determines the format in which incoming HIP packets arrive to the
   host.  The following steps define the conceptual processing rules for
   incoming datagrams.  The specific transport format and method
   specifications define in more detail the packet processing, related
   to the method.

   1.  The incoming datagram is mapped to an existing HIP association,
       typically using some information from the packet.  For example,
       such mapping may be based on IPsec ESP Security Parameter Index (SPI)
       or a protocol port number. (SPI).

   2.  The specific transport format is unwrapped, in a way depending on
       the transport format, yielding a packet that looks like a
       standard (unencrypted) IP packet.  If possible, this step SHOULD
       also verify that the packet was indeed (once) sent by the remote
       HIP host, as identified by the HIP association.

   3.  The IP addresses in the datagram are replaced with the HITs
       associated with the HIP association.  Note that this
       IP-address-to-HIT IP-address-
       to-HIT conversion step MAY also be performed at some other point
       in the stack.

   4.  The datagram is delivered to the upper layer.  Demultiplexing the
       datagram the right upper layer socket is based on the HITs (or
       LSIs).

8.3  HMAC and SIGNATURE calculation and verification

   The following subsections define the actions for processing HMAC,
   HIP_SIGNATURE and HIP_SIGNATURE_2 TLVs.

8.3.1  HMAC calculation

   The following process applies both to the HMAC and HMAC_2 TLVs.  When
   processing HMAC_2, the difference is that the HMAC calculation
   includes pseudo HOST_ID field containing the Responder's information
   as sent in the R1 packet earlier.

   The HMAC TLV is defined in Section 6.2.10 and HMAC_2 TLV in
   Section 6.2.11. HMAC calculation and verification process:

   Packet sender:
   1.  Create the HIP packet, without the HMAC or any possible
       HIP_SIGNATURE or HIP_SIGNATURE_2 TLVs.
   2.  In case of HMAC_2 calculation, add a HOST_ID (Responder) TLV to
       the packet.
   3.  Calculate the Length field in the HIP header.
   4.  Compute the HMAC.
   5.  In case of HMAC_2, remove the HOST_ID TLV from the packet.
   6.  Add the HMAC TLV to the packet and any HIP_SIGNATURE or
       HIP_SIGNATURE_2 TLVs that may follow.
   7.  Recalculate the Length field in the HIP header.

   Packet receiver:
   1.  Verify the HIP header Length field.
   2.  Remove the HMAC or HMAC_2 TLV, and if the packet contains any
       HIP_SIGNATURE or HIP_SIGNATURE_2 fields, remove them too, saving
       the contents if they will be needed later.
   3.  In case of HMAC_2, build and add a HOST_ID TLV (with Responder
       information) to the packet.
   4.  Recalculate the HIP packet length in the HIP header and clear the
       Checksum field (set it to all zeros).
   5.  Compute the
       LSIs).

6.3  HMAC and verify it against the received HMAC.
   6.  In case of HMAC_2, remove the HOST_ID TLV from SIGNATURE Calculation and Verification

   The following subsections define the packet before
       further processing.

8.3.2  Signature calculation actions for processing HMAC,
   HIP_SIGNATURE and HIP_SIGNATURE_2 TLVs.

6.3.1  HMAC Calculation

   The following process applies both to the HIP_SIGNATURE HMAC and
   HIP_SIGNATURE_2 HMAC_2 TLVs.  When
   processing HIP_SIGNATURE_2, HMAC_2, the only difference is that instead of HIP_SIGNATURE TLV, the HIP_SIGNATURE_2
   TLV is used, and HMAC calculation
   includes a pseudo HOST_ID field containing the Initiator's HIT and PUZZLE Opaque Responder's
   information as sent in the R1 packet earlier.

   Both the Initiator and Random #I
   fields are cleared (set the Responder should take some care when
   verifying or calculating the HMAC_2.  Specifically, the Responder
   should preserve other parameters than the HOST_ID when sending the
   R2.  Also, the Initiator has to all zeros) before computing preserve the signature. HOST_ID exactly as it
   was received in the R1 packet.

   The HIP_SIGNATURE HMAC TLV is defined in Section 6.2.12 5.2.9 and the
   HIP_SIGNATURE_2 HMAC_2 TLV in
   Section 6.2.13.

   Signature 5.2.10.  HMAC calculation and verification process:

   Packet sender:

   1.  Create the HIP packet packet, without the HIP_SIGNATURE TLV HMAC or any TLVs
       that follow the HIP_SIGNATURE TLV.
   2.  Calculate the Length field in the HIP header.
   3.  Compute the signature.
   4.  Add the HIP_SIGNATURE TLV to the packet.
   5.  Add any TLVs that follow the possible
       HIP_SIGNATURE TLV.
   6.  Recalculate the Length field in the HIP header.

   Packet receiver:
   1.  Verify the HIP header Length field. or HIP_SIGNATURE_2 TLVs.

   2.  Save the contents  In case of the HIP_SIGNATURE TLV and any TLVs following
       the HIP_SIGNATURE HMAC_2 calculation, add a HOST_ID (Responder) TLV and remove them from to
       the packet.

   3.  Recalculate the HIP packet Length in the HIP header and clear the
       Checksum field (set it to all zeros).
   4.  Compute the signature and verify it against the received
       signature.

   The verification can use either  Calculate the Length field in the HI received from a HIP packet, header.

   4.  Compute the HI HMAC.

   5.  In case of HMAC_2, remove the HOST_ID TLV from a DNS query, if the FQDN has been received either in packet.

   6.  Add the
   HOST_ID or in HMAC TLV to the CER packet, packet and any HIP_SIGNATURE or one received by some other means.

8.4  Initiation of a HIP exchange

   An implementation
       HIP_SIGNATURE_2 TLVs that may originate a HIP exchange to another host based
   on a local policy decision, usually triggered by an application
   datagram, follow.

   7.  Recalculate the Length field in much the same way that an IPsec IKE key exchange can
   dynamically create a Security Association.  Alternatively, a system
   may initiate a HIP exchange if it has rebooted or timed out, or
   otherwise lost its header.

   Packet receiver:

   1.  Verify the HIP state, as described in Section 5.3.

   The implementation prepares an I1 packet and sends it to header Length field.

   2.  Remove the IP
   address that corresponds to HMAC or HMAC_2 TLV, and if the peer host.  The IP address of packet contains any
       HIP_SIGNATURE or HIP_SIGNATURE_2 fields, remove them too, saving
       the
   peer host may be obtained via conventional mechanisms, such as DNS
   lookup.  The I1 contents are specified in Section 7.1.  The selection
   of which host identity to use, if they will be needed later.

   3.  In case of HMAC_2, build and add a host has more than one HOST_ID TLV (with Responder
       information) to choose
   from, is typically a policy decision.

   The following steps define the conceptual processing rules for
   initiating a HIP exchange:
   1. packet.  The Initiator gets the Responder's HIT and HOST_ID TLV should be identical
       to the one or more addresses
       either previously received from a DNS lookup of the responder's FQDN, from some other
       repository, or from a local table.  If Responder.

   4.  Recalculate the initiator does not
       know HIP packet length in the responder's HIT, it may attempt opportunistic mode by
       using NULL (all zeros) as HIP header and clear the responder's HIT.
   2.  The Initiator sends an I1
       Checksum field (set it to one of all zeros).

   5.  Compute the Responder's addresses.
       The selection HMAC and verify it against the received HMAC.

   6.  In case of which address to use is a local policy decision.
   3.  Upon sending an I1, HMAC_2, remove the sender shall transition HOST_ID TLV from the packet before
       further processing.

6.3.2  Signature Calculation

   The following process applies both to state I1-SENT,
       start a timer whose timeout value should be larger than the
       worst-case anticipated RTT, HIP_SIGNATURE and shall increment a timeout counter
       associated with the I1.
   4.  Upon timeout,
   HIP_SIGNATURE_2 TLVs.  When processing HIP_SIGNATURE_2, the sender SHOULD retransmit only
   difference is that instead of HIP_SIGNATURE TLV, the I1 HIP_SIGNATURE_2
   TLV is used, and restart the
       timer, up Initiator's HIT and PUZZLE Opaque and Random #I
   fields are cleared (set to a maximum of I1_RETRIES_MAX tries.

8.4.1  Sending multiple I1s all zeros) before computing the signature.
   The HIP_SIGNATURE TLV is defined in parallel

   For Section 5.2.11 and the sake of minimizing
   HIP_SIGNATURE_2 TLV in Section 5.2.12.

   Signature calculation and verification process:

   Packet sender:

   1.  Create the session establishment latency, an
   implementation MAY send HIP packet without the same I1 to more than one of HIP_SIGNATURE TLV or any TLVs
       that follow the
   Responder's addresses.  However, it MUST NOT send to more than three
   (3) addresses HIP_SIGNATURE TLV.

   2.  Calculate the Length field and zero the Checksum field in parallel.  Furthermore, upon timeout, the
   implementation MUST refrain from sending HIP
       header.

   3.  Compute the same I1 packet to
   multiple addresses.  These limitations are placed order signature.

   4.  Add the HIP_SIGNATURE TLV to avoid
   congestion of the network, and potential DoS attacks packet.

   5.  Add any TLVs that might
   happen, e.g., because someone claims to have hundreds or thousands of
   addresses.

   As follow the Responder is not guaranteed to distinguish HIP_SIGNATURE TLV.

   6.  Recalculate the duplicate I1's
   it receives at several of its addresses (because it avoids to store
   states when it answers back an R1), Length field in the Initiator may receive several
   duplicate R1's.

   The Initiator SHOULD then select HIP header, and calculate the initial preferred destination
   address using
       Checksum field.

   Packet receiver:

   1.  Verify the source address HIP header Length field.

   2.  Save the contents of the selected received R1, HIP_SIGNATURE TLV and use any TLVs following
       the preferred address as a source address for HIP_SIGNATURE TLV and remove them from the I2.  Processing
   rules for received R1s are discussed in Section 8.6.

8.4.2  Processing incoming ICMP Protocol Unreachable messages

   A host may receive an ICMP Destination Protocol Unreachable message
   as a response to sending an HIP I1 packet.  Such a packet may be an
   indication that

   3.  Recalculate the peer does not support HIP, or it may be an
   attempt to launch an attack by making HIP packet Length in the Initiator believe that HIP header and clear the
   Responder does not support HIP.

   When a system receives an ICMP Destination Protocol Unreachable
   message while it is waiting for an R1,
       Checksum field (set it MUST NOT terminate to all zeros).

   4.  Compute the
   wait.  It MAY continue as if signature and verify it had not against the received
       signature.

   The verification can use either the ICMP message,
   and send HI received from a few more I1s.  Alternatively, it MAY take HIP packet,
   the ICMP message
   as HI from a hint that DNS query, if the peer most probably does not support HIP, FQDN has been received in the HOST_ID
   packet, or one received by some other means.

6.4  HIP KEYMAT Generation

   HIP keying material is derived from the Diffie-Hellman Kij produced
   during the HIP base exchange.  The Initiator has Kij during the
   creation of the I2 packet, and
   return to state UNASSOCIATED earlier than otherwise.  However, at
   minimum, the Responder has Kij once it MUST continue waiting for an R1 for a reasonable time
   before returning to UNASSOCIATED.

8.5  Processing incoming I1 packets

   An implementation SHOULD reply to an I1 with an R1 packet, unless receives
   the
   implementation I2 packet.  This is unable or unwilling to setup a HIP association.  If why I2 can already contain encrypted
   information.

   The KEYMAT is derived by feeding Kij and the implementation HITs into the following
   operation; the | operation denotes concatenation.

    KEYMAT = K1 | K2 | K3 | ...
          where

    K1   = SHA-1( Kij | sort(HIT-I | HIT-R) | I | J | 0x01 )
    K2   = SHA-1( Kij | K1 | 0x02 )
    K3   = SHA-1( Kij | K2 | 0x03 )
    ...
    K255 = SHA-1( Kij | K254 | 0xff )
    K256 = SHA-1( Kij | K255 | 0x00 )
    etc.

   Sort(HIT-I | HIT-R) is unable to setup a HIP association, defined as the host
   SHOULD send an ICMP Destination Protocol Unreachable,
   Administratively Prohibited, message to network byte order
   concatenation of the I1 source address.  If two HITs, with the implementation is unwilling to setup a HIP association, smaller HIT preceding the host
   MAY ignore
   larger HIT, resulting from the I1.  This latter case may occur during a DoS attack
   such as an I1 flood.

   The implementation MUST be able to handle a storm numeric comparison of received I1
   packets, discarding those with common content the two HITs
   interpreted as positive (unsigned) 128-bit integers in network byte
   order.

   I and J values are from the puzzle and its solution that arrive within a
   small time delta.

   A spoofed I1 can result were
   exchanged in an R1 attack on a system.  An R1 sender
   MUST and I2 messages when this HIP association was set up.
   Both hosts have a mechanism to rate limit R1s to an address.

   Under no circumstances does store I and J values for the HIP state machine transition upon
   sending an R1.

   The following steps define the conceptual processing rules association for
   responding to an I1 packet:
   1.
   future use.

   The responder MUST check that the responder HIT initial keys are drawn sequentially in the received
       I1 is either one of its own HITs, or NULL.
   2.  If the responder order that is in ESTABLISHED state, the responder MAY
       respond to this with an R1 packet, prepare to drop existing SAs
       and stay at ESTABLISHED state.
   3.  If the implementation chooses to respond to the I1 with and R1
       packet, it creates a new R1 or selects a precomputed R1 according
       to
   determined by the format numeric comparison of the two HITs, with comparison
   method described in Section 7.2.
   4.  The R1 MUST contain the received responder HIT, unless previous paragraph.  HOST_g denotes the
       received HIT is NULL, in which case host
   with the Responder SHOULD select a greater HIT that is constructed with value, and HOST_l the MUST algorithm in Section 3,
       which is currently RSA.  Other than that, selecting host with the lower HIT is a
       local policy matter.
   5.
   value.

   The responder sends the R1 to the source IP address drawing order for initial keys:

      HIP-gl encryption key for HOST_g's outgoing HIP packets

      HIP-gl integrity (HMAC) key for HOST_g's outgoing HIP packets

      HIP-lg encryption key (currently unused) for HOST_l's outgoing HIP
      packets

      HIP-lg integrity (HMAC) key for HOST_l's outgoing HIP packets

   The number of the I1
       packet.

8.5.1  R1 Management

   All compliant implementations MUST produce R1 packets.  An R1 packet
   MAY be precomputed.  An R1 packet MAY be reused bits drawn for time Delta T,
   which is implementation dependent.  R1 information MUST not be
   discarded until Delta S after T.  Time S a given algorithm is the delay needed for "natural" size
   of the
   last I2 to arrive back to keys.  For the mandatory algorithms, the responder. following sizes
   apply:

   AES 128 bits

   SHA-1 160 bits

   NULL 0 bits

6.5  Initiation of a HIP Exchange

   An implementation MAY keep state about received I1s and match the
   received I2s against may originate a HIP exchange to another host based
   on a local policy decision, usually triggered by an application
   datagram, in much the same way that an IPsec IKE key exchange can
   dynamically create a Security Association.  Alternatively, a system
   may initiate a HIP exchange if it has rebooted or timed out, or
   otherwise lost its HIP state, as discussed described in Section 4.1.1.

8.5.2  Handling malformed messages

   If an 4.5.4.

   The implementation receives a malformed prepares an I1 message, packet and sends it SHOULD NOT
   respond with a NOTIFY message, as to the IP
   address that corresponds to the peer host.  The IP address of the
   peer host may be obtained via conventional mechanisms, such practice could open up a
   potential denial-of-service danger.  Instead, it MAY respond with an
   ICMP packet, as defined DNS
   lookup.  The I1 contents are specified in Section 6.3.

8.6  Processing incoming R1 packets

   A system receiving an R1 MUST first check 5.3.1.  The
   selection of which host identity to see use, if it a host has sent an I1 more than one
   to choose from, is typically a policy decision.

   The following steps define the originator conceptual processing rules for
   initiating a HIP exchange:

   1.  The Initiator gets the Responder's HIT and one or more addresses
       either from a DNS lookup of the R1 (i.e., Responder's FQDN, from some other
       repository, or from a local table.  If the Initiator does not
       know the Responder's HIT, it may attempt opportunistic mode by
       using NULL (all zeros) as the Responder's HIT.

   2.  The Initiator sends an I1 to one of the Responder's addresses.
       The selection of which address to use is in a local policy decision.

   3.  Upon sending an I1, the sender shall transition to state I1-SENT).  If so,
   it I1-SENT,
       start a timer whose timeout value should be larger than the
       worst-case anticipated RTT, and shall increment a timeout counter
       associated with the I1.

   4.  Upon timeout, the sender SHOULD process retransmit the R1 as described below, send an I2, I1 and go restart the
       timer, up to
   state I2-SENT, setting a timer to protect maximum of I1_RETRIES_MAX tries.

6.5.1  Sending Multiple I1s in Parallel

   For the I2.  If sake of minimizing the system is
   in state I2-SENT, it session establishment latency, an
   implementation MAY respond send the same I1 to an R1 if more than one of the R1 has a larger R1
   generation counter; if so,
   Responder's addresses.  However, it should drop its state due MUST NOT send to processing more than three
   (3) addresses in parallel.  Furthermore, upon timeout, the previous R1 and start over
   implementation MUST refrain from state I1-SENT.  If sending the system is
   in any other state with respect same I1 packet to that host, it SHOULD silently drop
   the R1.

   When sending
   multiple I1s, an initiator SHOULD wait for a small
   amount addresses.  These limitations are placed order to avoid
   congestion of time after the first R1 reception network, and potential DoS attacks that might
   happen, e.g., because someone claims to allow possibly
   multiple R1s have hundreds or thousands of
   addresses.

   As the Responder is not guaranteed to arrive, and distinguish the duplicate I1's
   it SHOULD respond receives at several of its addresses (because it avoids to store
   states when it answers back an R1 among the set
   with R1), the largest R1 generation counter. Initiator may receive several
   duplicate R1's.

   The following steps define Initiator SHOULD then select the conceptual processing initial preferred destination
   address using the source address of the selected received R1, and use
   the preferred address as a source address for the I2.  Processing
   rules for
   responding to an R1 packet:
   1. received R1s are discussed in Section 6.7.

6.5.2  Processing Incoming ICMP Protocol Unreachable Messages

   A system receiving host may receive an R1 MUST first check ICMP Destination Protocol Unreachable message
   as a response to see if it has sent sending an HIP I1 to the originator of the R1 (i.e., it has packet.  Such a HIP
        association that is in state I1-SENT and packet may be an
   indication that is associated with
        the HITs in the R1).  If so, peer does not support HIP, or it should process may be an
   attempt to launch an attack by making the R1 as
        described below.
   2.  Otherwise, if Initiator believe that the
   Responder does not support HIP.

   When a system receives an ICMP Destination Protocol Unreachable
   message while it is in any other state than I1-SENT or
        I2-SENT with respect to the HITs included in the waiting for an R1, it SHOULD
        silently drop MUST NOT terminate the R1
   wait.  It MAY continue as if it had not received the ICMP message,
   and remain in send a few more I1s.  Alternatively, it MAY take the current state.
   3.  If ICMP message
   as a hint that the HIP association peer most probably does not support HIP, and
   return to state is I1-SENT or I2-SENT, the received
        Initiator's HIT UNASSOCIATED earlier than otherwise.  However, at
   minimum, it MUST correspond continue waiting for an R1 for a reasonable time
   before returning to the HIT used in the original, UNASSOCIATED.

6.6  Processing Incoming I1 and the Responder's HIT MUST correspond Packets

   An implementation SHOULD reply to the one used,
        unless the an I1 contained a NULL HIT.
   4.  The system SHOULD validate the with an R1 signature before applying
        further packet processing, according packet, unless the
   implementation is unable or unwilling to Section 6.2.13.
   5. setup a HIP association.  If
   the HIP association state implementation is I1-SENT, and multiple valid R1s
        are present, unable to setup a HIP association, the system host
   SHOULD select from among the R1s with send an ICMP Destination Protocol Unreachable,
   Administratively Prohibited, message to the largest R1 generation counter.
   6. I1 source address.  If
   the HIP association state implementation is I2-SENT, unwilling to setup a HIP association, the system host
   MAY reenter
        state I1-SENT and process ignore the I1.  This latter case may occur during a DoS attack
   such as an I1 flood.

   The implementation MUST be able to handle a storm of received I1
   packets, discarding those with common content that arrive within a
   small time delta.

   A spoofed I1 can result in an R1 if it has attack on a larger system.  An R1
        generation counter than sender
   MUST have a mechanism to rate limit R1s to an address.

   It is RECOMMENDED that the R1 responded HIP state machine does not transition upon
   sending an R1.

   The following steps define the conceptual processing rules for
   responding to previously.

   7. an I1 packet:

   1.  The R1 packet may have Responder MUST check that the C bit set -- Responder HIT in this case, the system
        should anticipate the receipt received
       I1 is either one of HIP CER packets that contain
        the host identity corresponding to the responder's HIT.
   8.  The R1 packet may have its own HITs, or NULL.

   2.  If the A bit set -- Responder is in this case, ESTABLISHED state, the system Responder MAY choose
       respond to refuse it by dropping the this with an R1 and returning packet, prepare to
        state UNASSOCIATED.  The system SHOULD consider dropping drop existing SAs
       and stay at ESTABLISHED state.

   3.  If the R1
        only if Responder is in I1-SENT state, it used must make a NULL comparison
       between the sender's HIT in I1. and its own HIT.  If the A bit sender's HIT is set,
       greater than its own HIT, it should drop the
        Responder's I1 and stay at I1-
       SENT.  If the sender's HIT is anonymous and smaller than its own HIT, it should not be stored.
   9.
       send R1 and stay at I1-SENT.  The system SHOULD attempt to validate the HIT against comparison goes similarly
       as in Section 6.4.

   4.  If the
        received Host Identity.
   10.  The system MUST store implementation chooses to respond to the received I1 with an R1 generation counter for
        future reference.
   11.  The system attempts
       packet, it creates a new R1 or selects a precomputed R1 according
       to solve the cookie puzzle format described in R1. Section 5.3.2.

   5.  The
        system R1 MUST terminate the search after exceeding the remaining
        lifetime of contain the puzzle.  If received Responder HIT, unless the cookie puzzle
       received HIT is not
        successfully solved, the implementation may either resend I1
        within the retry bounds or abandon the HIP exchange.
   12.  The system computes standard Diffie-Hellman keying material
        according to the public value and Group ID provided NULL, in which case the
        DIFFIE_HELLMAN parameter.  The Diffie-Hellman keying material
        Kij Responder SHOULD select a
       HIT that is used for key extraction as specified constructed with the MUST algorithm in Section 9.  If
        the received Diffie-Hellman Group ID 3,
       which is not supported, the
        implementation may either resend I1 within the retry bounds or
        abandon currently RSA.  Other than that, selecting the HIP exchange.
   13. HIT is a
       local policy matter.

   6.  The system selects Responder sends the HIP transform from R1 to the choices presented
        in source IP address of the I1
       packet.

6.6.1  R1 Management

   All compliant implementations MUST produce R1 packets.  An R1 packet and uses the selected values subsequently when
        generating and using encryption keys, and when sending the I2.
        If the proposed alternatives are
   MAY be precomputed.  An R1 packet MAY be reused for time Delta T,
   which is implementation dependent.  R1 information MUST not acceptable to be
   discarded until Delta S after T. Time S is the system,
        it may either resend I1 within delay needed for the retry bounds or abandon
   last I2 to arrive back to the
        HIP exchange.
   14.  The system initialized Responder.

   An implementation MAY keep state about received I1s and match the remaining variables in
   received I2s against the associated state, including Update ID counters.
   15.  The system prepares and sends an I2, as described discussed in Section 7.3.
   16.  The system 4.1.1.

6.6.2  Handling Malformed Messages

   If an implementation receives a malformed I1 message, it SHOULD start NOT
   respond with a timer whose timeout value should be
        larger than the worst-case anticipated RTT, and MUST increment NOTIFY message, as such practice could open up a
        timeout counter associated
   potential denial-of-service danger.  Instead, it MAY respond with an
   ICMP packet, as defined in Section 5.4.

6.7  Processing Incoming R1 Packets

   A system receiving an R1 MUST first check to see if it has sent an I1
   to the I2.  The sender originator of the R1 (i.e., it is in state I1-SENT).  If so,
   it SHOULD
        retransmit process the I2 upon a timeout R1 as described below, send an I2, and restart the timer, up go to
   state I2-SENT, setting a timer to a
        maximum of I2_RETRIES_MAX tries.
   17. protect the I2.  If the system is
   in state I1-SENT, I2-SENT, it shall transition MAY respond to an R1 if the R1 has a larger R1
   generation counter; if so, it should drop its state due to processing
   the previous R1 and start over from state
        I2-SENT. I1-SENT.  If the system is
   in any other state, it remains in the
        current state.

8.6.1  Handling malformed messages

   If an implementation receives a malformed R1 message, state with respect to that host, it MUST SHOULD silently drop
   the packet.  Sending a NOTIFY or ICMP would not help,
   as the sender of the R1 typically doesn't have any state.  An
   implementation R1.

   When sending multiple I1s, an Initiator SHOULD wait for some more time for a possible good R1,
   after which it MAY try again by sending a new I1 packet.

8.7  Processing incoming I2 packets

   Upon receipt small
   amount of an I2, the system MAY perform initial checks to
   determine whether the I2 corresponds to a recent R1 that has been
   sent out, if the Responder keeps such state.  For example, the sender
   could check whether time after the I2 is from an address or HIT that has
   recently received an R1 from it.  The first R1 may have had Opaque data
   included that was echoed back in the I2.  If the I2 is considered reception to
   be suspect, allow possibly
   multiple R1s to arrive, and it MAY be silently discarded by the system.

   Otherwise, the HIP implementation SHOULD process the I2.  This
   includes validation of the cookie puzzle solution, generating the
   Diffie-Hellman key, decrypting the Initiator's Host Identity,
   verifying the signature, creating state, and finally sending respond to an R2. R1 among the set
   with the largest R1 generation counter.

   The following steps define the conceptual processing rules for
   responding to an I2 R1 packet:

   1.  The   A system MAY perform checks to verify that the I2 corresponds
        to a recently sent R1.  Such checks are implementation
        dependent.  See Appendix C for a description of receiving an example
        implementation.
   2.  The system R1 MUST first check that the Responder's HIT corresponds to one see if it has sent
        an I1 to the originator of its own HITs.
   3. the R1 (i.e., it has a HIP
        association that is in state I1-SENT and that is associated with
        the HITs in the R1).  If so, it should process the R1 as
        described below.

   2.   Otherwise, if the system is in any other state than I1-SENT or
        I2-SENT with respect to the R2-SENT state, HITs included in the R1, it MAY check if SHOULD
        silently drop the newly
        received I2 R1 and remain in the current state.

   3.   If the HIP association state is similar I1-SENT or I2-SENT, the received
        Initiator's HIT MUST correspond to the HIT used in the original,
        I1 and the Responder's HIT MUST correspond to the one that triggered moving used,
        unless the I1 contained a NULL HIT.

   4.   The system SHOULD validate the R1 signature before applying
        further packet processing, according to
        R2-SENT. Section 5.2.12.

   5.   If so, it the HIP association state is I1-SENT, and multiple valid R1s
        are present, the system SHOULD select from among the R1s with
        the largest R1 generation counter.

   6.   If the HIP association state is I2-SENT, the system MAY retransmit reenter
        state I1-SENT and process the received R1 if it has a previously sent R2, reset larger R1
        generation counter than the R1 responded to previously.

   7.   The R1 packet may have the R2-SENT timer, and stay A bit set -- in R2-SENT.
   4.  If this case, the system is in any other state,
        MAY choose to refuse it by dropping the R1 and returning to
        state UNASSOCIATED.  The system SHOULD check that consider dropping the
        echoed R1 generation counter
        only if it used a NULL HIT in I2 is within the acceptable
        range.  Implementations MUST accept puzzles from the current
        generation and MAY accept puzzles from earlier generations. I1.  If the newly received I2 A bit is outside the accepted range, set, the I2
        Responder's HIT is
        stale (perhaps replayed) anonymous and SHOULD should not be dropped.
   5. stored.

   8.   The system MUST SHOULD attempt to validate the solution HIT against the
        received Host Identity.

   9.   The system MUST store the received R1 generation counter for
        future reference.

   10.  The system attempts to solve the cookie puzzle by
        computing the SHA-1 hash described in Section 7.3.
   6. R1.  The I2
        system MUST have a single value in terminate the HIP_TRANSFORM parameter,
        which MUST match one search after exceeding the remaining
        lifetime of the values offered to puzzle.  If the Initiator in cookie puzzle is not
        successfully solved, the R1 packet.
   7. implementation may either resend I1
        within the retry bounds or abandon the HIP exchange.

   11.  The system must derive computes standard Diffie-Hellman keying material Kij based
        on
        according to the public value and Group ID provided in the
        DIFFIE_HELLMAN parameter.  This key  The Diffie-Hellman keying material
        Kij is used to derive the HIP association keys, for key extraction as described specified in Section 9. 6.4.  If
        the received Diffie-Hellman Group ID is
        unsupported, not supported, the I2 packet is silently dropped.
   8.
        implementation may either resend I1 within the retry bounds or
        abandon the HIP exchange.

   12.  The encrypted HOST_ID decrypted by system selects the HIP transform from the choices presented
        in the R1 packet and uses the Initiator selected values subsequently when
        generating and using encryption key
        defined in Section 9. keys, and when sending the I2.
        If the decrypted data is proposed alternatives are not an HOST_ID
        parameter, acceptable to the I2 packet is silently dropped.
   9.  The implementation SHOULD also verify that system,
        it may either resend I1 within the Initiator's HIT in retry bounds or abandon the I2 corresponds to
        HIP exchange.

   13.  The system initialized the Host Identity sent remaining variables in the I2.
   10. associated
        state, including Update ID counters.

   14.  The system MUST verify the HMAC according to the procedures prepares and sends an I2, as described in
        Section 6.2.10.
   11. 5.3.3.

   15.  The system SHOULD start a timer whose timeout value should be
        larger than the worst-case anticipated RTT, and MUST verify increment a
        timeout counter associated with the HIP_SIGNATURE according to
        Section 6.2.12 I2.  The sender SHOULD
        retransmit the I2 upon a timeout and Section 7.3.
   12.  If restart the checks above are valid, then timer, up to a
        maximum of I2_RETRIES_MAX tries.

   16.  If the system proceeds with
        further I2 processing; otherwise, is in state I1-SENT, it discards shall transition to state
        I2-SENT.  If the I2 and system is in any other state, it remains in the same
        current state.
   13.  The I2 packet may have

6.7.1  Handling Malformed Messages

   If an implementation receives a malformed R1 message, it MUST
   silently drop the C bit set -- in this case, packet.  Sending a NOTIFY or ICMP would not help,
   as the sender of the R1 typically doesn't have any state.  An
   implementation SHOULD wait for some more time for a possible good R1,
   after which it MAY try again by sending a new I1 packet.

6.8  Processing Incoming I2 Packets

   Upon receipt of an I2, the system
        should anticipate MAY perform initial checks to
   determine whether the receipt of HIP CER packets I2 corresponds to a recent R1 that contain has been
   sent out, if the host identity corresponding to Responder keeps such state.  For example, the sender
   could check whether the responder's HIT.
   14.  The I2 packet is from an address or HIT that has
   recently received an R1 from it.  The R1 may have the A bit set -- had Opaque data
   included that was echoed back in this case, the system
        MAY choose I2.  If the I2 is considered to refuse
   be suspect, it MAY be silently discarded by dropping the I2 and returning to
        state UNASSOCIATED.  If system.

   Otherwise, the A bit is set, HIP implementation SHOULD process the I2.  This
   includes validation of the cookie puzzle solution, generating the
   Diffie-Hellman key, decrypting the Initiator's HIT is
        anonymous Host Identity,
   verifying the signature, creating state, and should not be stored.
   15. finally sending an R2.

   The system initialized the remaining variables in following steps define the associated
        state, including Update ID counters.
   16.  Upon successful conceptual processing of rules for
   responding to an I2 in states UNASSOCIATED,
        I1-SENT, I2-SENT, and R2-SENT, an R2 is sent and packet:

   1.   The system MAY perform checks to verify that the state
        machine transitions I2 corresponds
        to state ESTABLISHED.
   17.  Upon successful processing a recently sent R1.  Such checks are implementation
        dependent.  See Appendix C for a description of an I2 in state ESTABLISHED, example
        implementation.

   2.   The system MUST check that the
        old HIP association is dropped and a new Responder's HIT corresponds to
        one of its own HITs.

   3.   If the system is installed, an R2
        is sent, and in the state machine transitions to R2-SENT.
   18.  Upon transitioning to R2-SENT, start a timer.  Leave R2-SENT state, it MAY check if
        either the timer expires (allowing for maximal retransmission of
        I2s), some data has been newly
        received on I2 is similar to the incoming HIP
        association, or an UPDATE packet has been received (or some
        other packet that indicates one that the peer has moved triggered moving to
        ESTABLISHED).

   4.   If the puzzle solution system is in the message has already been checked, I2-SENT state, it makes a comparison
        between its local and sender's HITs (similarly as in
        Section 6.4).  If the
   implementation SHOULD report local HIT is smaller than the error by responding with a NOTIFY sender's
        HIT, it should drop the I2 packet.  Otherwise  Otherwise, the implementation MAY respond system should
        process the received I2 packet.

   5.   To avoid the possibility to end up with an ICMP
   message as defined in Section 6.3.

8.8  Processing incoming R2 packets

   An R2 different session keys
        due to symmetric operation of the peer nodes, the Diffie-Hellman
        key, I, and J selection is also based on the HIT comparison.  If
        the local HIT is smaller than the peer HIT, the system uses peer
        Diffie-Hellman key and nonce I from the R1 packet received in states UNASSOCIATED, I1-SENT, ESTABLISHED, or
   REKEYING results in
        earlier.  The local Diffie-Hellman key and nonce J are taken
        from the I2 packet sent to the peer earlier.  Otherwise, it uses
        peer Diffie-Hellman key and nonce J from the R2 being dropped just arrived I2.
        The local Diffie-Hellman key and nonce I are the state machine
   staying ones that it
        sent ealier in the same state. R1 packet.

   6.   If an R2 the system is received in any other state I2-SENT, than R2-SENT, it SHOULD be processed.

   The following steps define the conceptual processing rules for
   incoming R2 packet:
   1.  The system MUST verify
        check that the HITs echoed R1 generation counter in use correspond to I2 is within the
       HITs that were
        acceptable range.  Implementations MUST accept puzzles from the
        current generation and MAY accept puzzles from earlier
        generations.  If the newly received in R1.
   2. I2 is outside the accepted
        range, the I2 is stale (perhaps replayed) and SHOULD be dropped.

   7.   The system MUST verify validate the HMAC_2 according solution to the procedures cookie puzzle by
        computing the SHA-1 hash described in Section 6.2.11.
   3. 5.3.3.

   8.   The system I2 MUST verify have a single value in the HIP signature according HIP_TRANSFORM parameter,
        which MUST match one of the values offered to the
       procedures Initiator in Section 6.2.12.
   4.  If any of
        the checks above fail, there is a high probability of
       an ongoing man-in-the-middle or other security attack. R1 packet.

   9.   The system SHOULD act accordingly, must derive Diffie-Hellman keying material Kij based
        on its local policy.
   5.  If the system is in any other state than I2-SENT, the R2 is
       silently dropped.
   6.  Upon successful processing of the R2, the state machine moves to
       state ESTABLISHED.

8.9  Sending UPDATE packets

   A host sends an UPDATE packet when it wants to update some
   information related to a HIP association.  There are a number of
   likely situations, e.g.  mobility management and rekeying of an
   existing ESP Security Association.  The following paragraphs define public value and Group ID in the conceptual rules for sending an UPDATE packet DIFFIE_HELLMAN
        parameter.  This key is used to derive the peer.
   Additional steps can be defined HIP association keys,
        as described in other documents where Section 6.4.  If the UPDATE Diffie-Hellman Group ID is
        unsupported, the I2 packet is used.
   1. silently dropped.

   10.  The system increments its own Update ID value encrypted HOST_ID decrypted by one.
   2.  The system creates an UPDATE packet that contains the Initiator encryption key
        defined in Section 6.4.  If the decrypted data is not a SEQ parameter
       with HOST_ID
        parameter, the current value of Update ID.  The UPDATE I2 packet may is silently dropped.

   11.  The implementation SHOULD also
       include an ACK of verify that the Update ID found Initiator's HIT
        in the received UPDATE SEQ
       parameter, if any.
   3. I2 corresponds to the Host Identity sent in the I2.

   12.  The system sends MUST verify the created UPDATE packet and starts an UPDATE
       timer. HMAC according to the procedures in
        Section 5.2.9.

   13.  The default value for system MUST verify the timer is 2 * RTT estimate.
   4. HIP_SIGNATURE according to
        Section 5.2.11 and Section 5.3.3.

   14.  If the UPDATE timer expires, checks above are valid, then the UPDATE is resent.  The UPDATE
       can be resent UPDATE_RETRY_MAX times. system proceeds with
        further I2 processing; otherwise, it discards the I2 and remains
        in the same state.

   15.  The UPDATE timer SHOULD be
       exponentially backed off for subsequent retransmissions.

8.10  Receiving UPDATE packets

   When a I2 packet may have the A bit set -- in this case, the system receives an UPDATE packet, its processing depends on
        MAY choose to refuse it by dropping the I2 and returning to
        state UNASSOCIATED.  If the state of A bit is set, the HIP association Initiator's HIT is
        anonymous and should not be stored.

   16.  The system initialized the presence of and values of remaining variables in the SEQ and ACK parameters.  Typically, associated
        state, including Update ID counters.

   17.  Upon successful processing of an UPDATE message also
   carries optional parameters whose handling is defined I2 in separate
   documents.

   1.  If there states UNASSOCIATED, I1-
        SENT, I2-SENT, and R2-SENT, an R2 is no corresponding HIP association, sent and the implementation
       MAY reply with state machine
        transitions to state R2-SENT.

   18.  Upon successful processing of an ICMP Parameter Problem, as specified I2 in
       Section 6.3.4.

   2.  If state ESTABLISHED, the
        old HIP association is in the ESTABLISHED state dropped and the SEQ
       parameter a new one is present, the UPDATE installed, an R2
        is processed sent, and replied as
       described in Section 8.10.1.
   3.  Additionally (or alternatively), the state machine transitions to R2-SENT.

   19.  Upon transitioning to R2-SENT, start a timer.  Move to
        ESTABLISHED if some data has been received on the association is in incoming HIP
        association, or an UPDATE packet has been received (or some
        other packet that indicates that the
       ESTABLISHED state and there is peer has moved to
        ESTABLISHED).  If the timer expires (allowing for maximal
        retransmissions of I2s), move to UNASSOCIATED.

6.8.1  Handling Malformed Messages

   If an ACK (of outstanding Update ID) implementation receives a malformed I2 message, the behavior
   SHOULD depend on how much checks the message has already passed.  If
   the puzzle solution in the UPDATE, message has already been checked, the UPDATE is processed
   implementation SHOULD report the error by responding with a NOTIFY
   packet.  Otherwise the implementation MAY respond with an ICMP
   message as described defined in Section 8.10.2.

6.9  Processing Incoming R2 Packets

   An R2 received UPDATE message

   1.  If the Update ID in states UNASSOCIATED, I1-SENT, ESTABLISHED, or
   REKEYING results in the received SEQ is smaller than the stored
       Update ID for the peer host, the packet MUST BE R2 being dropped as a
       duplicate.
   2.  If and the Update ID state machine
   staying in the received SEQ same state.  If an R2 is equal to received in state I2-SENT, it
   SHOULD be processed.

   The following steps define the stored
       Update ID conceptual processing rules for the host, the packet is treated as a
       retransmission.
   incoming R2 packet:

   1.  The HMAC verification (next step) system MUST NOT be
       skipped.  (A byte-by-byte comparison of the received and a store
       packet would be OK, though.)  It is recommended verify that a host cache the last packet that was acked HITs in use correspond to avoid the cost of generating a
       new ACK packet to respond to a replayed UPDATE.
       HITs that were received in R1.

   2.  The system MUST
       acknowledge, again, such (apparent) UPDATE message
       retransmissions but SHOULD also consider rate-limiting such
       retransmission responses verify the HMAC_2 according to guard against replay attacks. the procedures in
       Section 5.2.10.

   3.  The system MUST verify the HMAC in HIP signature according to the UPDATE packet.
       procedures in Section 5.2.11.

   4.  If any of the
       verification fails, the packet MUST be dropped.
   4. checks above fail, there is a high probability of
       an ongoing man-in-the-middle or other security attack.  The
       system MAY verify the SIGNATURE in the UPDATE packet.  If the
       verification fails, the packet SHOULD be dropped and an error
       message logged. act accordingly, based on its local policy.

   5.  If a new SEQ parameter is being processed, the system MUST record
       the Update ID is in any other state than I2-SENT, the received SEQ parameter, for replay
       protection. R2 is
       silently dropped.

   6.  An  Upon successful processing of the R2, the state machine moves to
       state ESTABLISHED.

6.10  Sending UPDATE Packets

   A host sends an UPDATE acknowledgement packet with ACK parameter is prepared when it wants to update some
   information related to a HIP association.  There are a number of
   likely situations, e.g. mobility management and send rekeying of an
   existing ESP Security Association.  The following paragraphs define
   the conceptual rules for sending an UPDATE packet to the peer.

8.10.2  Handling an ACK parameter
   Additional steps can be defined in a received other documents where the UPDATE
   packet is used.

   1.  The system increments its own Update ID value by one.

   2.  The system creates an UPDATE packet that contains a SEQ parameter
       with ACK must match to an earlier sent UPDATE
       packet.  If no match is found, the packet MUST be dropped.
   2. current value of Update ID.  The system MUST verify UPDATE packet may also
       include an ACK of the HMAC Update ID found in the a received UPDATE packet.  If the
       verification fails, the packet MUST be dropped. SEQ
       parameter, if any.

   3.  The system MAY verify the SIGNATURE in sends the created UPDATE packet.  If the
       verification fails, the packet SHOULD be dropped and starts an error
       message logged.
   4.  The corresponding UPDATE timer is stopped (see Section 8.9) so
       that
       timer.  The default value for the now acknowledged UPDATE is no longer retransmitted.

8.11  Processing CER packets

   Processing CER packets is OPTIONAL, and currently undefined.

8.12  Processing NOTIFY packets

   Processing NOTIFY packets timer is OPTIONAL.  If processed, any errors
   noted by the NOTIFY parameter SHOULD be taken into account by 2 * RTT estimate.

   4.  If the HIP
   state machine (e.g., by terminating a HIP handshake), and UPDATE timer expires, the error UPDATE is resent.  The UPDATE
       can be resent UPDATE_RETRY_MAX times.  The UPDATE timer SHOULD be logged.

8.13  Processing CLOSE packets
       exponentially backed off for subsequent retransmissions.

6.11  Receiving UPDATE Packets

   When the host receives a CLOSE message it responds with a CLOSE_ACK
   message and moves to CLOSED state.  (The authenticity of the CLOSE
   message is verified using both HMAC and SIGNATURE).  This system receives an UPDATE packet, its processing
   applies whether or not depends on
   the HIP association state is CLOSING in order
   to handle CLOSE messages from both ends crossing in flight.

   The of the HIP association is not discarded before the host moves from the
   UNASSOCIATED state.

   Once and the closing process has started, any need to send data packets
   will trigger creating presence of and establishing values of a new HIP association,
   starting with sending
   the SEQ and ACK parameters.  Typically, an I1. UPDATE message also
   carries optional parameters whose handling is defined in separate
   documents.

   1.  If there is no corresponding HIP association, the implementation
       MAY reply to a CLOSE with an ICMP Parameter Problem, as specified in
       Section 6.3.4.

8.14  Processing CLOSE_ACK packets

   When a host receives a CLOSE_ACK message it verifies that it 5.4.4.

   2.  If the association is in
   CLOSING or CLOSED the ESTABLISHED state and that the CLOSE_ACK was in response to SEQ
       parameter is present, the UPDATE is processed and replied as
       described in Section 6.11.1.

   3.  Additionally (or alternatively), if the association is in the
       ESTABLISHED state and there is an ACK (of outstanding Update ID)
       in the UPDATE, the UPDATE is processed as described in
       Section 6.11.2.

6.11.1  Handling a SEQ paramaeter in a received UPDATE message
   1.  If the Update ID in the received SEQ is smaller than the stored
       Update ID for the
   CLOSE (using peer host, the included ECHO_REPLY packet MUST BE dropped as a
       duplicate.

   2.  If the Update ID in response the received SEQ is equal to the sent
   ECHO_REQUEST).

   The CLOSE_ACK uses HMAC and SIGNATURE stored
       Update ID for verification.  The state is
   discarded when the state changes to UNASSOCIATED and, after that,
   NOTIFY host, the packet is sent treated as a response to
       retransmission.  The HMAC verification (next step) MUST NOT be
       skipped.  (A byte-by-byte comparison of the received and a CLOSE message.

8.15  Dropping HIP associations

   A HIP implementation stored
       packet would be OK, though.)  It is free to drop a HIP association at any time,
   based on its own policy.  If recommended that a HIP host decides to drop a HIP
   association, it deletes the corresponding HIP state, including the
   keying material.  The implementation MUST also drop cache
       the peer's R1
   generation counter value, unless a local policy explicitly defines last packet that was acked to avoid the value cost of that particular host is stored.  An implementation generating a
       new ACK packet to respond to a replayed UPDATE.  The system MUST NOT store R1 generation counters by default,
       acknowledge, again, such (apparent) UPDATE message
       retransmissions but storing R1
   generation counter values, if done, SHOULD also consider rate-limiting such
       retransmission responses to guard against replay attacks.

   3.  The system MUST be configured by explicit
   HITs.

9.  HIP KEYMAT

   HIP keying material is derived from verify the Diffie-Hellman Kij produced
   during HMAC in the HIP base exchange. UPDATE packet.  If the
       verification fails, the packet MUST be dropped.

   4.  The Initiator has Kij during system MAY verify the
   creation of SIGNATURE in the I2 packet, and UPDATE packet.  If the Responder has Kij once it receives
       verification fails, the I2 packet.  This is why I2 can already contain encrypted
   information.

   The KEYMAT is derived by feeding Kij packet SHOULD be dropped and an error
       message logged.

   5.  If a new SEQ parameter is being processed, the HITs into system MUST record
       the following
   operation; Update ID in the | operation denotes concatenation.

    KEYMAT = K1 | K2 | K3 | ...
          where

    K1   = SHA-1( Kij | sort(HIT-I | HIT-R) | 0x01 )
    K2   = SHA-1( Kij | K1 | 0x02 )
    K3   = SHA-1( Kij | K2 | 0x03 )
    ...
    K255 = SHA-1( Kij | K254 | 0xff )
    K256 = SHA-1( Kij | K255 | 0x00 )
    etc.

   Sort(HIT-I | HIT-R) received SEQ parameter, for replay
       protection.

   6.  An UPDATE acknowledgement packet with ACK parameter is defined as the network byte order
   concatenation of prepared
       and sent to the two HITs, peer.

6.11.2  Handling an ACK Parameter in a Received UPDATE Packet

   1.  The UPDATE packet with ACK must match with an earlier sent UPDATE
       packet.  If no match is found, the smaller HIT preceding packet MUST be dropped.

   2.  The system MUST verify the
   larger HIT, resulting from HMAC in the numeric comparison of UPDATE packet.  If the two HITs
   interpreted as positive (unsigned) 128-bit integers in network byte
   order.
       verification fails, the packet MUST be dropped.

   3.  The initial keys are drawn sequentially system MAY verify the SIGNATURE in the order UPDATE packet.  If the
       verification fails, the packet SHOULD be dropped and an error
       message logged.

   4.  The corresponding UPDATE timer is stopped (see Section 6.10) so
       that the now acknowledged UPDATE is
   determined no longer retransmitted.

6.12  Processing NOTIFY Packets

   Processing NOTIFY packets is OPTIONAL.  If processed, any errors
   noted by the numeric comparison of NOTIFY parameter SHOULD be taken into account by the two HITs, with comparison
   method described in HIP
   state machine (e.g., by terminating a HIP handshake), and the previous paragraph.  HOST_g denotes error
   SHOULD be logged.

6.13  Processing CLOSE Packets

   When the host receives a CLOSE message it responds with the greater HIT value, a CLOSE_ACK
   message and HOST_l moves to CLOSED state.  (The authenticity of the host with CLOSE
   message is verified using both HMAC and SIGNATURE).  This processing
   applies whether or not the lower HIT
   value.

   The drawing order for initial keys:
      HIP-gl encryption key for HOST_g's outgoing HIP packets
      HIP-gl integrity (HMAC) key for HOST_g's outgoing HIP packets
      HIP-lg encryption key (currently unused) for HOST_l's outgoing HIP
      packets
      HIP-lg integrity (HMAC) key for HOST_l's outgoing HIP packets association state is CLOSING in order
   to handle CLOSE messages from both ends crossing in flight.

   The number of bits drawn for a given algorithm HIP association is not discarded before the "natural" size
   of the keys.  For host moves from the mandatory algorithms,
   UNASSOCIATED state.

   Once the following sizes
   apply:
   AES 128 bits
   SHA-1 160 bits
   NULL 0 bits

10. closing process has started, any need to send data packets
   will trigger creating and establishing of a new HIP Fragmentation Support

   A association,
   starting with sending an I1.

   If there is no corresponding HIP association, the implementation must support IP fragmentation / reassembly.
   Fragment reassembly MUST be implemented MAY
   reply to a CLOSE with an ICMP Parameter Problem, as specified in both IPv4 and IPv6, but
   fragment generation MUST be implemented only
   Section 5.4.4.

6.14  Processing CLOSE_ACK Packets

   When a host receives a CLOSE_ACK message it verifies that it is in IPv4 (IPv4 stacks and
   networks will usually do this by default)
   CLOSING or CLOSED state and SHOULD be implemented that the CLOSE_ACK was in IPv6.  In response to the IPv6 world,
   CLOSE (using the minimum MTU is larger, 1280 bytes,
   than included ECHO_REPLY in response to the IPv4 world. sent
   ECHO_REQUEST).

   The larger MTU size is usually sufficient
   for most HIP packets, CLOSE_ACK uses HMAC and therefore fragment generation may not be
   needed.  If a host expects to send HIP packets that are larger than
   the minimum IPv6 MTU, it MUST implement fragment generation even SIGNATURE for
   IPv6.

   In verification.  The state is
   discarded when the IPv4 world, state changes to UNASSOCIATED and, after that,
   NOTIFY is sent as a response to a CLOSE message.

6.15  Dropping HIP packets may encounter low MTUs along their
   routed path.  Since Associations

   A HIP does not provide a mechanism implementation is free to use multiple
   IP datagrams for drop a single HIP packet, support of path MTU discovery
   does not bring association at any value time,
   based on its own policy.  If a HIP host decides to drop a HIP in
   association, it deletes the IPv4 world.  HIP-aware NAT
   systems MUST perform any IPv4 reassembly/fragmentation.

   All corresponding HIP implementations state, including the
   keying material.  The implementation MUST also drop the peer's R1
   generation counter value, unless a local policy explicitly defines
   that the value of that particular host is stored.  An implementation
   MUST NOT store R1 generation counters by default, but storing R1
   generation counter values, if done, MUST employ a reassembly algorithm that is
   sufficiently resistant against DoS attacks.

11. be configured by explicit
   HITs.

7.  HIP Policies

   There are a number of variables that will influence the HIP exchanges
   that each host must support.  All HIP implementations MUST support
   more than one simultaneous HIs, at least one of which SHOULD be
   reserved for anonymous usage.  Although anonymous HIs will be rarely
   used as responder Responder HIs, they will be common for Initiators.  Support
   for more than two HIs is RECOMMENDED.

   Many Initiators would want to use a different HI for different
   Responders.  The implementations SHOULD provide for an ACL of
   initiator
   Initiator HIT to responder Responder HIT.  This ACL SHOULD also include
   preferred transform and local lifetimes.  For HITs with HAAs,
   wildcarding SHOULD be supported.  Thus if a Community of Interest,
   like Banking, gets an RAA, a HAA, a single ACL could be used.  A global
   wildcard would represent the general policy to be used.  Policy
   selection would be from most specific to most general.

   The value of K used in the HIP R1 packet can also vary by policy.  K
   should never be greater than 20, but for trusted partners it could be
   as low as 0.

   Responders would need a similar ACL, representing which hosts they
   accept HIP exchanges, and the preferred transform and local
   lifetimes.  Wildcarding SHOULD be supported for this ACL also.

12.

8.  Security Considerations

   HIP is designed to provide secure authentication of hosts.  HIP also
   attempts to limit the exposure of the host to various
   denial-of-service denial-of-
   service and man-in-the-middle (MitM) attacks.  In so doing, HIP
   itself is subject to its own DoS and MitM attacks that potentially
   could be more damaging to a host's ability to conduct business as
   usual.

   Denial-of-service attacks take advantage of the cost of start of
   state for a protocol on the Responder compared to the 'cheapness' on
   the Initiator.  HIP makes no attempt to increase the cost of the
   start of state on the Initiator, but makes an effort to reduce the
   cost to the Responder.  This is done by having the Responder start
   the 3-way exchange instead of the Initiator, making the HIP protocol
   4 packets long.  In doing this, packet 2 becomes a 'stock' packet
   that the Responder MAY use many times.  The duration of use is a
   paranoia versus throughput concern.  Using the same Diffie-Hellman
   values and random puzzle #I has some risk.  This risk needs to be
   balanced against a potential storm of HIP I1 packets.

   This shifting of the start of state cost to the Initiator in creating
   the I2 HIP packet, presents another DoS attack.  The attacker spoofs
   the I1 HIP packet and the Responder sends out the R1 HIP packet.
   This could conceivably tie up the 'initiator' 'Initiator' with evaluating the R1
   HIP packet, and creating the I2 HIP packet.  The defense against this
   attack is to simply ignore any R1 packet where a corresponding I1 was
   not sent.

   A second form of DoS attack arrives in the I2 HIP packet.  Once the
   attacking Initiator has solved the puzzle, it can send packets with
   spoofed IP source addresses with either invalid encrypted HIP payload
   component or a bad HIP signature.  This would take resources in the
   Responder's part to reach the point to discover that the I2 packet
   cannot be completely processed.  The defense against this attack is
   after N bad I2 packets, the Responder would discard any I2s that
   contain the given Initiator HIT.  Thus will shut down the attack.
   The attacker would have to request another R1 and use that to launch
   a new attack.  The Responder could up the value of K while under
   attack.  On the downside, valid I2s might get dropped too.

   A third form of DoS attack is emulating the restart of state after a
   reboot of one of the partners.  A host restarting would send an I1 to
   a peer, which would respond with an R1 even if it were in the
   ESTABLISHED state.  If the I1 were spoofed, I1 were spoofed, the resulting R1 would be
   received unexpectedly by the spoofed host and would be dropped, as in
   the first case above.

   A fourth form of DoS attack is emulating the end of state.  HIP
   relies on timers plus a CLOSE/CLOSE_ACK handshake to explicitly
   signals the end of a state.  Because both CLOSE and CLOSE_ACK
   messages contain an HMAC, an outsider cannot close a connection.  The
   presence of an additional SIGNATURE allows middle-boxes to inspect
   these messages and discard the associated state (for e.g.,
   firewalling, SPI-based NATing, etc.).  However, the optional behavior
   of replying to CLOSE with an ICMP Parameter Problem packet (as
   described in Section 5.4.4) might allow an IP spoofer sending CLOSE
   messages to launch reflection attacks.

   A fifth form of DoS attack is replaying R1s to cause the Initiator to
   solve stale puzzles and become out of synchronization with the
   Responder.  The R1 generation counter is a monotonically increasing
   counter designed to protect against this attack, as described in
   section Section 4.1.3.

   Man-in-the-middle attacks are difficult to defend against, without
   third-party authentication.  A skillful MitM could easily handle all
   parts of HIP; but HIP indirectly provides the following protection
   from a MitM attack.  If the Responder's HI is retrieved from a signed
   DNS zone, a certificate, or through some other secure means, the
   Initiator can use this to validate the resulting R1 would be
   received unexpectedly by HIP packet.

   Likewise, if the spoofed host and would be dropped, as Initiator's HI is in a secure DNS zone, a trusted
   certificate, or otherwise securely available, the first case above.

   A fourth form of DoS attack is emulating Responder can
   retrieve it after it gets the end of state. I2 HIP
   relies on timers plus a CLOSE/CLOSE_ACK handshake to explicitly
   signals the end of a state.  Because both CLOSE packet and CLOSE_ACK
   messages contain validate that.
   However, since an HMAC, Initiator may choose to use an outsider cannot close anonymous HI, it
   knowingly risks a connection. MitM attack.  The
   presence of Responder may choose not to
   accept a HIP exchange with an additional SIGNATURE allows middle-boxes anonymous Initiator.

   If an Initiator wants to inspect
   these messages and discard the associated state (for e.g.,
   firewalling, SPI-based NATing, etc.).  However, use opportunistic mode, it is vulnerable to
   man-in-the-middle attacks.  Furthermore, the optional behavior
   of replying available HI types are
   limited to CLOSE the MUST implement algorithms, as per Section 3.  Hence,
   if a future specification deprecates the current MUST implement
   algorithm(s) and replaces it (them) with some new one(s), backward
   compatibility cannot be preserved.

   Since not all hosts will ever support HIP, ICMP 'Destination Protocol
   Unreachable' are to be expected and present a DoS attack.  Against an
   Initiator, the attack would look like the Responder does not support
   HIP, but shortly after receiving the ICMP Parameter Problem packet (as
   described in Section 6.3.4) might allow message, the Initiator
   would receive a valid R1 HIP packet.  Thus to protect from this
   attack, an IP spoofer sending CLOSE
   messages Initiator should not react to launch reflection attacks. an ICMP message until a
   reasonable delta time to get the real Responder's R1 HIP packet.  A fifth form of DoS
   similar attack against the Responder is replaying R1s to cause more involved.  First an ICMP
   message is expected if the initiator to
   solve stale puzzles I1 was a DoS attack and become out the real owner of synchronization with
   the
   responder. spoofed IP address does not support HIP.  The R1 generation counter is a monotonically increasing
   counter designed to protect against Responder SHOULD
   NOT act on this attack, as described in
   section Section 4.1.3.

   Man-in-the-middle attacks are difficult ICMP message to defend against, without
   third-party authentication.  A skillful MitM could easily handle all
   parts of HIP; but HIP indirectly provides remove the following protection minimal state from a MitM attack.  If the Responder's HI is retrieved from a signed
   DNS zone, R1
   HIP packet (if it has one), but wait for either a certificate, valid I2 HIP packet
   or through some other secure means, the
   Initiator can use this to validate natural timeout of the R1 HIP packet.  This is to allow for a
   sophisticated attacker that is trying to break up the HIP exchange.
   Likewise, if the Initiator's HI Initiator should ignore any ICMP message while waiting
   for an R2 HIP packet, deleting state only after a natural timeout.

9.  IANA Considerations

   This document defines a new IP Protocol number to be used for HIP.
   This protocol has been assigned the number < To Be Assigned by IANA
   -- for testing purposes, the protocol number 99 is currently used >.

   This document also creates a set of new name spaces.  These are
   described below.

   Packet Type

      The 8-bit Packet Type field in a secure DNS zone, a trusted
   certificate, or otherwise securely available, the Responder can
   retrieve it after it gets the I2 HIP protocol packet and validate that.
   However, since an Initiator may choose to use an anonymous HI, it
   knowingly risks a MitM attack.  The Responder may choose not to
   accept describes the
      type of a HIP exchange with an anonymous Initiator.

   If an initiator wants to use opportunistic mode, it protocol message.  It is vulnerable to
   man-in-the-middle attacks.  Furthermore, the available HI types are
   limited to the MUST implement algorithms, as per defined in Section 3.  Hence,
   if a future specification deprecates the 5.1.
      The current MUST implement
   algorithm(s) and replaces it (them) with some new one(s), backward
   compatibility cannot be preserved.

   HIT Type

      The three bit HIT Type values appear in the ICMP message, Sender's HIT Type and

10.  Acknowledgments

   The drive to create HIP came to being after attending the MALLOC
   meeting at the 43rd IETF meeting.  Baiju Patel and Hilarie Orman
   really gave the original author, Bob Moskowitz, the assist to get HIP
   beyond 5 paragraphs of ideas.  It has matured considerably since the
   early drafts thanks to extensive input from IETFers.  Most
   importantly, its design goals are articulated and are different from
   other efforts in this direction.  Particular mention goes to the
   members of the NameSpace Research Group of the IRTF.  Noel Chiappa
   provided the framework for LSIs and Keith Moore the impetus to
   provide resolvability.  Steve Deering provided encouragement to keep
   working, as a solid proposal can act as a proof of ideas for a
   research group.

   Many others contributed; extensive security tips were provided by
   Steve Bellovin.  Rob Austein kept the DNS parts on track.  Paul
   Kocher taught Bob Moskowitz how to make the cookie exchange expensive
   for the Initiator to respond, but easy for the Responder to validate.
   Bill Sommerfeld supplied the Birthday concept, which later evolved
   into the R1 generation counter, to simplify reboot management.  Erik
   Nordmark supplied CLOSE-mechanism for closing connections.  Rodney
   Thayer and Hugh Daniels provide extensive feedback.  In the early
   times of this draft, John Gilmore kept Bob Moskowitz challenged to
   provide something of value.

   During the later stages of this document, when the editing baton was
   transfered to Pekka Nikander, the input from the early implementors
   were invaluable.  Without having actual implementations, this
   document would not be on the level it is now.

   In the usual IETF fashion, a large number of people have contributed
   to the actual text or ideas.  The list of these people include Jeff
   Ahrenholz, Francis Dupont, Derek Fawcus, George Gross, Andrew
   McGregor, Julien Laganier, Miika Komu, Mika Kousa, Jan Melen, Henrik
   Petander, Michael Richardson, Tim Shepard, Jorma Wall, and Jukka
   Ylitalo.  Our apologies to anyone whose name is missing.

   Once the HIP Working Group was founded in early 2004, a number of
   changes were introduced through the working group process.  Most
   notably, the original draft was split in two, one containing the base
   exchange and the other one defining how to use ESP.

15.  Some
   modifications to the protocol proposed by Aura et al. [29] were added
   at a later stage.

Appendix A.  Probabilities of HIT collisions Collisions

   The birthday paradox sets a bound for the expectation of collisions.
   It is based on the square root of the number of values.  A 64-bit
   hash, then, would put the chances of a collision at 50-50 with 2^32
   hosts (4 billion).  A 1% chance of collision would occur in a
   population of 640M and a .001% collision chance in a 20M population.
   A 128 bit hash will have the same .001% collision chance in a 9x10^16
   population.

Appendix B.  Probabilities in the cookie calculation Cookie Calculation

   A question: Is it guaranteed that the Initiator is able to solve the
   puzzle in this way when the K value is large?

   Answer: No, it is not guaranteed.  But it is not guaranteed even in
   the old mechanism, since the Initiator may start far away from J and
   arrive to J after far too many steps.  If we wanted to make sure that
   the Initiator finds a value, we would need to give some hint of a
   suitable J, and I don't think we want to do that.

   In general, if we model the hash function with a random function, the
   probability that one iteration gives are result with K zero bits is
   2^-K.  Thus, the probability that one iteration does _not_ give K
   zero bits is (1 - 2^-K).  Consequently, the probability that 2^K
   iterations does not give K zero bits is (1 - 2^-K)^(2^K).

   Since my calculus starts to be rusty, I made a small experiment and
   found out that

     lim     (1 - 2^-k)^(2^k)     = 0.36788
     k->inf

     lim     (1 - 2^-k)^(2^(k+1)) = 0.13534
     k->inf

     lim     (1 - 2^-k)^(2^(k+2)) = 0.01832
     k->inf

     lim     (1 - 2^-k)^(2^(k+3)) = 0.000335
     k->inf

   Thus, if hash functions were random functions, we would need about
   2^(K+3) iterations to make sure that the probability of a failure is
   less than 1% (actually less than 0.04%).  Now, since my perhaps
   flawed understanding of hash functions is that they are "flatter"
   than random functions, 2^(K+3) is probably an overkill.  OTOH, the
   currently suggested 2^K is clearly too little.

Appendix C.  Using responder cookies

   As mentioned in Section 4.1.1, the Responder may delay state creation
   and still reject most spoofed I2s by using a number of pre-calculated
   R1s and a local selection function.  This appendix defines one
   possible implementation in detail.  The purpose of this appendix is
   to give the implementors an idea on how to implement the mechanism.
   The method described in this appendix SHOULD NOT be used in any real
   implementation.  If the implementation is based on this appendix, it
   SHOULD contain some local modification that makes an attacker's task
   harder.

   The basic idea is to create a cheap, varying local mapping function
   f:

      f( IP-I, IP-R, HIT-I, HIT-R ) -> cookie-index

    That is, given the Initiator's and Responder's IP addresses and
   HITs, the function returns an index to a cookie.  When processing an
   I1, the cookie is embedded in an pre-computed R1, and the Responder
   simply sends that particular R1 to the Initiator.  When processing an
   I2, the cookie may still be embedded in the R1, or the R1 may be
   deprecated (and replaced with a new one), but the cookie is still
   there.  If the received cookie does not match with the R1 or saved
   cookie, the I2 is simply dropped.  That prevents the Initiator from
   generating spoofed I2s with a probability that depends on the number
   of pre-computed R1s.

   As a concrete example, let us assume that the Responder has an array
   of R1s.  Each slot in the array contains a timestamp, an R1, and an
   old cookie that was sent in the previous R1 that occupied that
   particular slot.  The

Appendix C.  Using Responder replaces one R1 Cookies

   As mentioned in the array every
   few minutes, thereby replacing all the R1s gradually.

   To create a varying mapping function, Section 4.1.1, the Responder generates may delay state creation
   and still reject most spoofed I2s by using a
   random number every few minutes.  The octets in the IP addresses and
   HITs are XORed together, of pre-calculated
   R1s and finally the result a local selection function.  This appendix defines one
   possible implementation in detail.  The purpose of this appendix is XORed with the
   random number.  Using pseudo-code, the function looks like
   to give the
   following.

   Pre-computation:
       r1 := random number

   Index computation:
       index := r1    XOR hit_r[0] XOR hit_r[1] XOR ... XOR hit_r[15]
       index := index XOR hit_i[0] XOR hit_i[1] XOR ... XOR hit_i[15]
       index := index XOR  ip_r[0] XOR  ip_r[1] XOR ... XOR  ip_r[15]
       index := index XOR  ip_i[0] XOR  ip_i[1] XOR ... XOR  ip_i[15]
    The index gives implementors an idea on how to implement the slot used in mechanism.
   If the array.

   It implementation is possible based on this appendix, it MAY contain some
   local modification that makes an Initiator receives an I1, and while it is
   computing I2, the attacker's task harder.

   The Responder deprecates an R1 and/or chooses creates a new
   random number for the mapping function.  Therefore the secret value S, that it regenerates
   periodically.  The Responder must needs to remember two latest values of
   S. Each time the cookies used in deprecated R1s and the previous random
   number.

   To check an received I2, the S is regenerated, R1 generation counter value is
   incremented by one.

   The Responder can use generates a simple algorithm,
   expressed in pseudo-code as follows.

     If I2.hit_r does not match my_hits, drop the packet.

     index := compute_index(current_random_number, I2)
     If current_cookie[index]  == I2.cookie, go to cookie check.
     If previous_cookie[index] == I2.cookie, go to cookie check.

     index := compute_index(previous_random_number, I2)
     If current_cookie[index]  == I2.cookie, go to cookie check.
     If previous_cookie[index] == I2.cookie, go to cookie check.

     Drop pre-signed R1 packet.

   cookie_check:
     V := Ltrunc( SHA-1( I2.I, I2.hit_i, I2.hit_r, I2.J ), K )
     if V != 0, drop  The signature for
   pre-generated R1s must be recalculated when the packet.

   Whenever Diffie-Hellman key is
   recomputed or when the Responder receives an I2 that fails on R1_COUNTER value changes due to S value
   regeneration.

   When the index check,
   it can simply drop Initiator sends the I1 packet on for initializing a connection,
   the floor Responder gets the HIT and forget about it.  New
   I2s with IP address from the same or other spoofed parameters will get dropped with a
   reasonable probability packet, and minimal effort.

   If a Responder receives
   generates an I2 that passes I-value for the index check but fails
   on cookie.  The I value is set to the puzzle check, it should create a state indicating this.  After
   two or three failures pre-
   signed R1 packet.

        I value calculation:
        I = Ltrunc( SHA-1 ( S | HIT-I | HIT-R | IP-I | IP-R ), 64)

   From an incoming I2 packet, the Responder should cease checking gets the puzzle
   but drop required
   information to validate the packets directly.  This saves puzzle: HITs, IP addresses, and the Responder from
   information of the
   SHA-1 calculations.  Such block should not last long, however, or
   there would be a danger that a legitimate Initiator could be blocked used S value from getting connections.

   A key for the success of the defined scheme is that R1_COUNTER.  Using these
   values, the mapping
   function must be considerably cheaper than computing SHA-1.  It also
   must detect any changes in Responder can regenerate the IP addresses, I, and preferably most
   changes in the HITs.  Checking verify it against the HITs is not that essential,
   though, since HITs are included
   I received in the cookie computation, too.

   The effectivity of I2 packet.  If the method I values match, it can be varied by varying verify
   the size of solution using I, J, and difficulty K. If the I values do not
   match, the I2 is dropped.

        cookie_check:
        V := Ltrunc( SHA-1( I2.I | I2.hit_i | I2.hit_r | I2.J ), K )
        if V != 0, drop the array containing pre-computed R1s. packet

   If the array puzzle solution is large, correct, the
   probability that an I2 with I and J values are stored for
   later use.  They are used as input material when keying material is
   generated.

   The Responder SHOULD NOT keep state about failed puzzle solutions.

Appendix D.  Generating a spoofed IP address or HIT happens to
   map to from a HI

   The following pseudo-codes illustrate the same slot is fairly slow.  However, process to generate a large array means
   that each R1 has HIT

   attacker to utilize one solved puzzle HI for both RSA and DSA.

   The HIP checksum for HIP packets is specified in Section 6.1.2.
   Checksums for TCP and UDP packets running over HIP-enabled security
   associations are specified in Section 3.5.  The examples below use IP
   addresses of 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.2 (and their respective
   IPv4-compatible IPv4-
   compatible IPv6 formats), and type 1 HITs with the first two bits
   "01" followed by 124 zeroes followed by a decimal 1 or 2,
   respectively.

Appendix E. F.  384-bit group Group

   This 384-bit group is defined only to be used with HIP.  NOTE: The
   security level of this group is very low!  The encryption may be
   broken in a very short time, even real-time.  It should be used only
   when the host is not powerful enough (e.g. some PDAs) and when
   security requirements are low (e.g. during normal web surfing).

   This prime is: 2^384 - 2^320 - 1 + 2^64 * { [ 2^254 pi] + 5857 }

   Its hexadecimal value is:

       FFFFFFFF FFFFFFFF C90FDAA2 2168C234 C4C6628B 80DC1CD1
       29024E08 8A67CC74 020BBEA6 3B13B202 FFFFFFFF FFFFFFFF

   The generator is: 2.
