A Security Binding for Efficient Authentication in 3G-WLAN Heterogeneous Networks

The security architecture of the 3G-WLAN heterogeneous networks, which is proposed in 3GPP 33.234, specifies that a WLAN user, in order to get access to the 3G packet switched services or the public internet through the 3G Public Land Mobile Network (PLMN), they must follow a two-pass EAP-AKA authentication procedure. This paper proposes a one-pass EAP-AKA authentication procedure for the 3G-WLAN heterogeneous networks, which reduces significantly the authentication signaling traffic without compromising the provided level of security of the 3G-WLAN networks.
