Abstract

The previous studies focussed on the security problem and the fast re-authentication mechanism during handoffs in a single wireless LAN system. When the multiple wireless LAN systems share their network infrastructure one another, we propose an authentication mechanism allowing the subscriber to perform the authentication procedure with the authentication server of its own wireless LAN system even in areas of other wireless LAN systems as well as in areas of its own wireless LAN system. In the proposed mechanism, the access point or the authentication server of other wireless LAN systems plays a role of the authentication agent between the subscriber and the authentication server of the subscriber's wireless LAN system. The proposed authentication mechanism is designed on the basis of the 802.1X and EAP-MD5 protocols.
