RFC (part 1 of 5): Extensible Authentication Protocol Method for Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) Subscriber Identity Modules (EAP-SIM ). EAP-SIM RFC is a newly emerged EAP authentication The standard for EAP-SIM authentication is still in draft form with the IETF . but are not limited to, RFCs, the products of another standards body (e.g. 3GPP ), EAP-AKA’ AT_KDF Key Derivation Function values; Trusted Non-3GPP 12, AKA-Notification and SIM-Notification, [RFC][RFC].

EAP-TLS is still considered one of the most secure EAP standards available, although TLS provides strong security only as long as the user understands potential warnings about false credentials, and is universally supported by all manufacturers of wireless LAN hardware aep software.

If the peer has maintained state information for fast re-authentication and wants to use fast re-authentication, then the peer indicates this by using a specific fast re-authentication identity instead of the permanent identity or a pseudonym identity.

Permanent Username The username portion of permanent identity, i. GSM authentication is based wap a challenge-response mechanism. It was co-developed by Funk Software and Certicom and is widely rffc across platforms. Sung Ya-ChinY. The IETF has also not reviewed the security of the cryptographic algorithms. It provides a protected communication channel, when mutual authentication is successful, for both parties to communicate and is designed for authentication over insecure networks such as IEEE The protocol only specifies chaining multiple EAP mechanisms and not som specific method.


It supports authentication techniques that are based on the following types of credentials:. The EAP server may also include derived keying material in the message it sends to the authenticator.

The highest aim available is when the “private keys” of client-side certificate are housed in smart cards. Because protected success indications are not used in this example, the EAP server sends the EAP-Success packet, indicating that the authentication was successful. Additionally a number of vendor-specific methods and new proposals exist.

Fall Back to Full Authentication PANA allows dynamic service provider selection, supports various authentication methods, is suitable for roaming users, and is independent from the link layer mechanisms. EAP is ea authentication framework, not a specific authentication mechanism.

Permanent Identity The permanent identity of the peer, including an NAI realm portion in environments where a realm is used. Wireless networking Computer access control protocols. Showing of 27 references.

Format, Generation and Usage of Peer Identities This paper has citations. Microsoft Exchange Server Unleashed.

EAP-AKA and EAP-SIM Parameters

It is worth noting that the PAC file is issued on a per-user basis. Showing of 67 extracted citations. Second generation mobile networks and third generation mobile networks use different authentication and key agreement mechanisms.


WPA2 and potentially authenticate the wireless hotspot. If the MAC’s do not match, then the peer.

Requesting the Permanent Identity It can use an existing and widely deployed authentication protocol and infrastructure, incorporating legacy password mechanisms and authentication databases, while the secure tunnel provides protection from eavesdropping and man-in-the-middle attack.

From the ffc, the EAP server derives the keying material, as specified in Section 7. Retrieved from ” https: The underlying key exchange is resistant to active attack, passive attack, and dictionary attack.

In-band provisioning—provide the peer with a shared epa to be used in secure phase 1 conversation. References Publications referenced by this paper. The alternative is to use device passwords instead, but then the device is validated on the network not the user. Archived from the original PDF on 12 December
