End-to-End Security Across Wired-Wireless Networks for Mobile Users
Source: Taylor & Francis Group
Recent advances in mobile computing and wireless communication technologies are enabling high mobility and flexibility of anytime, anywhere service access for mobile users. As a result, network connections of such users often span over heterogeneous networking environments consisting of wired and wireless networking technologies. Both network heterogeneity and user mobility make the securing of data transmission over heterogeneous networks challenging and complex. In this paper, the authors focus on the challenge of providing secure end-to-end network transmissions to wireless mobile users. To minimize service interruption during ongoing secure sessions of mobile users, they present the design and implementation of an approach based on the well-known Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) standard.
