Abstract [en]

In a near future, computer users will want to be able to move around in a network and to log on to the nearest computer. Users will want to work and interact in an environment according to their own preferences, just as in their home network. This thesis proposes an extension of the terminal mobility supported by mobile IP [6] with user mobility support.

The theoretical background in the thesis focuses on, after distinguishing between different types of mobility to: (1) present Mobile IP, (2) introduce user mobility and also to discuss some requirements, and (3) give a general description of agents.

It is suggested that a User Agent (UA) represents a single user in the network and is responsible for his/her mobility. A user is registered at zero or more IP nodes. In order to allow several users to share the same IP node, a Remote User Agent (RUA) is required for each user on his/her IP node. The RUA will be created remotely at the specific mobile node, by the user’s UA.

A User Profile contains information and preferences related to a user. Also, through its profile, the owner of a terminal can protect it from being at registered by other users. The UA has a User Registration Container which is composed of a User Profile and a User Registration Table, containing information about each of the user’s current registrations.

A user registers at a mobile node through a User Registration Interface which is accessed through a Web browser after the necessary identification and authentication procedures have been completed.
