An authentication protocol, based on cryptographic techniques, is implemented and used in the communication necessary for the control of a mobile robot over a public network. The robot is connected via an 802.11 wireless network to a local computer; however the control of the robot is done from a remote host over TCP/IP and in this way the information involved in the control scenario may be exposed to several security risks. The application fits in the context of a remote controlled system and the interest in using cryptographic techniques in this area has drastically increased in the last years.
