 Official public release under the Sun Public Licence (SPL) of the UoB-NOMAD-0.10; an implementation of the NOMAD protocol based on the Sun Labs MobileIP compliant to draft-nomad-mobileip-filters-05. It enables mobile nodes to associate one or more Filters with mobility bindings during registration. Flows that match a Filter will be processed as defined by the Filter. In this manner, it is possible for a mobile node to distribute flows or packets of a flow among its available points of attachment, or to request that such flows are dropped before reaching the mobile node.
