Security V/S QoS for LTE Authentication and Key Agreement Protocol

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Protocol and technology convergence, the core of near future communication, will soon be forming the interoperating heterogeneous networks. Attaining a strict secure authentication without risking the QoS performance and call success rates is a major concern when it comes to wireless heterogeneous networks. In order to achieve this, a generic, fast and secure, authentication and key agreement protocol is to be used; a version of which is to be implemented between each two technologies. In this paper, different existing EPS-EPS AKA protocols will be compared with the authors' proposed protocol EC-AKA (Ensure Confidentiality Authentication and Key Agreement) based on security, cost effectiveness, signaling overhead, delay and performance.
