Mobile IP: The Internet Unplugged (Prentice Hall Series in Computer Networking and Distributed)by James Solomon
Synopses & Reviews
TCP/IP goes mobile!
The complete guide to developing, using, and profiting from Mobile IP networks.
Mobile IP brings together two of the world's most powerful technology trends: the Internet and mobile communications. Whether you're planning to develop, deploy, utilize, or invest in Mobile IP networks, this book delivers the up-to-date information you need-with clarity and insight. Discover:
In Mobile IP: The Internet Unplugged, the co-chair of the Mobile IP Working Group offers an insider's view of critical Mobile IP concepts like agent discovery, registration, and IP encapsulation. He presents detailed coverage of Mobile IP security, including the role of key management, encryption, authentication, integrity checking, and nonrepudiation. Finally, he presents a compelling vision of the future, where the benefits of standards-based mobile data are available everywhere.
Book News Annotation:
The co-chair of the Mobile IP working group details an Internet standards-track protocol which enhances the existing Internet Protocol (IP) to accommodate mobility. He discusses the Internet standards documents known as Request For Commands (RFCs), the administrative and security implications of Mobile IP and its applications, as well as directions for future research.

Mobile IP (Internet Protocol) brings together two of the world's most powerful technology trends: the Internet and mobile communications. This is the first book to clearly explain what Mobile IP is, how it works, and the security implications of its use. "This could become the Mobile IP "bible"... — Gabriel Montenegro, Sun Microsystems. Mobile IP: The Internet Unplugged reviews the problems Mobile IP is designed to solve, and how it solves them. It shows how to use Mobile IP in real-world campus and Internet-wide applications, and reviews the state-of-the-art in Mobile IP network security — including the role of key management, encryption, authentication, integrity checking and non-repudiation. There is also detailed coverage of essential concepts including agent discovery, registration, IP encapsulation. The book also presents models for delivering commercial service using Mobile IP, and reviews the technical issues that still need attention. Part of the Prentice Hall Series in Computer Networking and Distributed Systems, Radia Perlman, Series Editor. For anyone interested in mobile internetworking as an implementer, network manager, architect, service provider, or student.
Finally, he presents a compelling vision of the future, where the benefits of standards-based mobile data are available everywhere.
