The multi6 WG was tasked with investigating solutions to the site
multihoming problem that will allow the global routing system to scale.
The outcome of the multi6 WG is a specific network layer shim
architecture for addressing and address handling of sites and nodes.
This includes switching to different locator addresses when connectivity
changes, but without the changes of address being visible to upper
layers, which see a fixed Upper Layer Identifier address (ULID).

The proposed shim6 WG is to complete this work with the required
protocol developments and complete the architecture and security
analysis of the required protocols.
