Executive Summary

In recent years, the integration of Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) and Ethernet Passive Optical Network (EPON) has become one of the most promising broadband access solutions. The EPON network provides tremendous bandwidth while the WiMAX network can support mobility. Integration of PON and WiMAX combines the best of both technologies. However, the integration requires advanced secure mechanisms to overcome vulnerabilities of wireless mobile protocols. In this paper, the authors propose an end-to-end network architecture based on WiMAX over EPON networks, and they present a security framework that adopts the RSA protocol and the Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP).
