Security

A Universal Access Control Method Based on Host Identifiers for Future Internet

Free registration required

Executive Summary

There have been many security events in the Internet. Many of them are due to arbitrary access permissions to the network resources of the malicious users, especially their free sending packets to anywhere in the network. However, current existing solutions such as ingress filtering and network firewalls cannot solve the problem of malicious access to the network flexibly and effectively. In this paper, the authors present an efficient access control method based on host identifiers, in which a safe and bidirectional authentication process is introduced whenever the host begins to access the network. Meanwhile, all the succeeding information exchanges between the host and the network can be controlled through the encrypt scheme negotiated during the access authentication process.
