This document specifies sockets API extensions for the multihoming
shim layer.  The API aims to enable interactions between applications
and the multihoming shim layer for advanced locator management, and
access to information about failure detection and path exploration.

This document is based on an assumption that a multihomed host is
equipped with a conceptual sub-layer (hereafter called "shim sub-
layer") inside the IP layer that maintains mappings between
identifiers and locators.  Examples of the shim are Shim6 and the
Host Identity Protocol (HIP).  This document is not an Internet 
Standards Track specification; it is published for informational 

This document is a product of the Site Multihoming by IPv6 Intermediation Working Group of the IETF.
