Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) has proposed an extension based on Mobile IPv6 (MIPv6), named as network mobility basic support protocol (NEMO-BSP), to support NEMO in IPv6 networks. However, NEMO-BSP inherits all the drawbacks of MIPv6, such as inefficient routing path, high handover latency, and packet encapsulation overhead. To address these drawbacks of NEMO-BSP, this paper proposes an NEMO supporting scheme based on a novel Locator/ID Separation (LIDS) architecture, namely LIDS-NEMO. In LIDS-NEMO, Multiple Virtual Mapping (MVM) scheme is proposed to differentiate the intra-NEMO and inter-NEMO mobility. Besides, packets are transmitted through the most optimized route in LIDS-NEMO. The simulation results show that LIDS-NEMO reduces the signaling cost significantly when compared with NEMO-BSP and it will be a promising scheme to provide NEMO support in the LIDS context.
