A logical interface is a software semantic internal to the host
operating system.  This semantic is available in all popular
operating systems and is used in various protocol implementations.
Logical-interface support is required on the mobile node attached to
a Proxy Mobile IPv6 domain for leveraging various network-based
mobility management features such as inter-technology handoffs,
multihoming, and flow mobility support.  This document explains the
operational details of the logical-interface construct and the
specifics on how link-layer implementations hide the physical
interfaces from the IP stack and from the network nodes on the
attached access networks.  Furthermore, this document identifies the
applicability of this approach to various link-layer technologies and
analyzes the issues around it when used in conjunction with various
mobility management features.

This document is a product of the Network-Based Mobility Extensions Working Group of the IETF.
