A Fast and Secure Vertical handover scheme in Non-3GPP Access Networks

WiMAX, or Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is an emerging technology based on the IEEE 802.16 standard for a Metropolitan Area Preventing unauthorized access to the wireless broadband network as well as assuring the confidentiality of data transmitted across the network should be given attention. An enhanced authentication protocol was proposed for mobile WiMAX networks in order to achieve fast and secure inter-ASN handovers. They propose an Enhanced EAP (Enhanced Authentication Protocol) based TTLS (Tunnel Transport Layer Security) scheme to overcome the vulnerability of the above-mentioned scheme with much less requirements on the computation and communication resources
