Description / Abstract:

This Recommendation describes the authentication protocol based on the EAP-AKA for interworking 3GPP, WiMax [b-IEEE 802.16e], and WLAN [b-IEEE 802.11] access in NGN. 3GPP has standardized the 3GPP system-based EAP-AKA for interworking 3GPP and WLAN networks. The WiMax or WLAN device, however, requires an external UICC reader. Without UICC, the EAP-AKA mechanism loses its own advantages in security and portability aspects. This Recommendation proposes a modified version of the EAP-AKA protocol for extending its usage to existing WiMax/WLAN devices. In this Recommendation, two EAP-AKA full authentication protocols are described and proposed. Also, the fast re-authentication procedure of EAP-AKA is described.


Work for this Recommendation is based upon the context of [ITU-T Q.3201]. This Recommendation complies with the EAP-based security signalling architecture for network attachment in [ITU-T Q.3201], and considers the compatibility with the functional architecture in [ITU-T Y.2012].

This Recommendation refers to [ETSI TS 133 234] for authentication protocol based on EAP-AKA with UICC and fast re-authentication procedure.
