Encryption techniques like BLAKE and RSA is implemented in a fast authentication protocol based on tickets, which supports fast handoff mainly in real time applications like VoIP in Wireless Mesh Networks (802.11s). In this authentication protocol, the central server is not involved during authentication thus avoiding multiple hop transmissions. The use of BLAKE-256 and RSA in the protocol makes it efficient and resilient to different kinds of attacks. The entire protocol is implemented on FPGA.
