An EAP Authentication Method using One Time Identity

Vol. 10  No. 7  pp. 311-315


Recently, several EAP (Extensible Authentication Protocol) authentication methods have been proposed to protect mobile communications. The objective of these methods is to ensure authentication in 802.11 wireless networks. However, they do not provide other security services, especially the identity protection. In this paper, we present a new EAP authentication method called EAP-OTI (OTI for One Time Identity) that takes into account the increased need to protect the identity of the client. In addition, it optimizes the computation time required to authenticate both clients and authentication servers.
