Lightweight Host and User Authentication Protocol for All-IP Telecom Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Future wireless networks are moving fast towards all-IP network architectures and mobile operators are expanding their services outside traditional cellular networks becoming multi-access operators. This lays stringent requirements on access security, where implementing consistent security policies over disparate radio accesses becomes a challenge. In this paper, the authors introduce a novel host and user authentication protocol based on a lightweight Host Identity Diet Exchange Protocol that extends the existing 3GPP user authentication architecture and reuses the standard Authentication and Key Agreement scheme.
