This document defines a redirect mechanism for IKEv2. The main use case is scalability of large deployments of remote access VPN gateways. The proposed mechanism can also be used in Mobile IPv6, where signaling is protected by IKE/IPsec, to support the home agent in redirecting the mobile node to another home agent.

RFC Editor Note
Please append the following text as a new paragraph at the end of Section 3:
This document allows the client to be redirected in several protocol states. In some of them the gateway is already authenticated at the point of redirect, and in others it is not. We emphasize that the above rules regarding the identity of the new gateway and the PAD and SPD entries apply equally to all these scenarios.
