The IPID is actually the id field of the IP protocol packet header. This field provides an identification for IP packets used in the process of assembling fragments: packets with the same id value are about the same datagram, so the destination host knows how to assemble this packets into the original datagram (using also other information contained in the IP header).

The IPID field has a central role in the Idle scan scanning technique.
