This API is based on the Hash Based Addresses and Cryptographically Generated Addresses approaches, which are being developed by the IETF multi6 Working Group.
The support of Multihoming implies several actions such as failure detection procedures, reachability tests, re-homing procedures and exchange of locators.
Applications can benefit from transparent access to Multihoming services only if per host Multihoming parameters are defined.
However, more benefits could be obtained by applications if they will be able to configure these parameters.
The proposed Multihoming API provides different functions to applications which can modify some parameters and invoke some functions related with the Multihoming Layer. Keywords: API, Multihoming, IPv6 1. Introduction Networked applications are fundamental tools in our daily lives.
So, high available connections and resiliency [Yin and Twist, 2003] are usually required by enterprises and small-users.
Providing this high availability is a difficult task because of the fact that network failures can always happen; thus, redundancy techniques such as Multihomi...
