Privacy and security are key aspects in future network architectures. The Host Identity Protocol (HIP) is a new proposal which decouples identifiers from locators and may eventually replace conventional addressing and network transport. In this document we propose an architecture that provides location privacy, based on HIP. We further validate our work by implementation and support the feasibility of our protocol by experimentation.
