Enhanced Authentication and Key Agreement Procedure of Next Generation 3GPP Mobile Networks

In the next generation mobile networks, because of fundamental changes with respect to previous cellular 3.xG networks and integration different access network which caused frequent handover and provision all IP packet-based services, load transaction overhead such as authentication traffic overhead as an important initial security process to identity of users, between entities are a lot. In this paper, first explain evolved authentication and key agreement protocol for next generation Long Term Evolution/ System Architecture Evolution (LTE/SAE) networks and compared its enhancements with contrast to Universal Mobile Terrestrial System-Authentication and Key Agreement (UMTS-AKA), then, offers a new improvement protocol which increases performance of authentication procedure.
