Mobile IPv6 has been developed to sustain a seamless mobility in IP network which consists of many favorable characteristics in comparison to the previous Mobile IP protocol, i. e. Mobile IPv4. Unfortunately, Mobile IPv6 is badly affected by security threats like eavesdropping, secure route optimization, connection hijacking and denial of services and security issues are one of the major concerns which should be rectified. This paper entails an algorithm that contains all security components viz. authentication of services, confidentiality and integrity of data packets during communication, secrecy of key management and thus it would be able to nullify all types of security threats in Mobile IPv6 in anycast environment.
