I am very novice at Host Identity Protocol, I encountered it while
making a quick survey of Internet protocols with a perspective similar
to the original post.
HIP addresses Host Identity *and* end-to-end security. The rendez-vous
functionality (addressing the mobility use case) seems in the design
right from the start.
HIP also appears as a lightweight IPsec, but certainly others can offer
more wisdom in this respect.
Not a simple solution, but how could the original post requirements be
adequately served by a simple solution?
