Hi all,
Flow mobility in the NETEXT group is now a hot topic, but I want to know if there is anything else discussed in the area of flow mobility in HIP work group, in addition to the paper “Policy Based Flow Management with the Host Identity Protocol for Multi-homed Hosts”. I think that in HIP the transport layer port number can be used to identify a specific flow, so we can handover specific flows between different interfaces by sending extended UPDATE messages which include the transport layer port number and the value of the specified SPI, as well as IP address. 
Is that right? Thanks.
