A Protocol for Re-Authentication and Handoff Notification in Wireless Mesh Networks
Mesh technology has captured the interest of university research and industry, because of its capacity to meet at the same time the requirements of Internet service provider and users. But, its architecture and configuration do not ensure a protection against the unauthorized use of the network since the used basic security measures do not include the concept of mobility. The authors' endeavor in this paper is to introduce a re-authentication scheme for secure handoff based on an efficient mobility management. First, they have treated the mobility aspect. Indeed, they applied the Mobility Notification Message procedure to support an environment which manages handoff in effective way.
