J-PAKE Based Mutual Authentication Model for EPC Networks
The LTE architectural model developed by 3GPP proposed solutions to achieve high data rates, lighter network architectures and easier achievement of security requirements. Designed as a fully sustained IP network, the LTE provides unified access to a variety of services networks, via its EPC component. The core network of this LTE/4G architecture is designed to facilitate faster and more secure access to the services desired by the user, while providing a high level of predictability, control and charging for the services accessed. 4G architecture was designed in such a manner that it is also interoperable with existing 3G systems, as well as with non-3GPP systems. When describing such a flexible design, the security constraints cannot be neglected.
