A New Bio-Crypto System Approach to Enhance Security of 4G Mobile Networks
In this paper, the authors examine the vulnerable security elements that MAC management messages in WiMAX initial network entry faces. The paper proposes an innovative hybrid approach to resolve such vulnerability problem and establish secret communication channels via insecure domains. The proposed protocol is based on bio-crypto systems and to improve current security level of authentication and key exchange between the Subscriber Station (SS) and the Base Station (BS). AES-BDK system is defined as the integration of Advanced Encryption Standard and Biometric Digital Key.
