Yonghui Wang, representative of China Mobile to the Linux Foundation, gives a presentation about BIH (Bump in the Host) protocol at the Android Builder Summit in February 2012.
BIH or Bump-in-the-host realizes a host-based IPv4 to IPv6 protocol translation mechanism that allows a class of IPv4-only applications that work through NATs to communicate with IPv6-only peers on Android. The host on which applications are running may be connected to IPv6-only or dual-stack access networks. BIH hides IPv6 and makes the IPv4-only applications think they are talking with IPv4 peers by local synthesis of IPv4 addresses.
China Mobile has released an open source implementation of the protocol.
The presentation slides has not available for this talk.
