Performance Analysis of Access Control Protocols i.e. EAP, RADIUS and DIAMETER of WiMAX Security
Wi-MAX technology (IEEE 802.16) is the latest technology promised to provide Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) over a long range. Meanwhile its security is becoming critical issue with the rapid multiplication of wireless threats. As far as security of Wi-MAX is concerned first priority is across wireless network and other is to provide access control to network. Here, the authors study and compare the performance of access control protocols i.e., EAP, RADIUS and DIAMETER of Wi-MAX. The security to Wi-MAX, now-a-days is a critical issue as far as growth of wireless threats is concerned.
