Security becomes more important in wireless network due to lack of physical boundary. Worldwide interoperability for microwave access is a wireless communications technology, also known as IEEE802.16 that is intended for wireless \"Metropolitan area network\". IEEE802.16e (WiMAX amendment) is a standard for mobile application in WiMAX. IEEE 802.16e supports EAP (Extensible Authentication Protocol) for authentication. EAP-TLS which is a recommendation of IEEE802.16e provides strongest security but is inefficient and costly due to use of PKI to handle the certificate.
