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].

Format, Generation and Usage of Peer Identities Webarchive template wayback links Pages using RFC magic links All articles with specifically marked weasel-worded phrases Articles with specifically marked weasel-worded phrases from January All articles with unsourced som Articles with unsourced statements from April Wikipedia articles with GND identifiers. 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.

GSM is a second generation mobile network standard. Extensible Authentication Protocol Search for additional papers on this topic.

Sung Ya-ChinY. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. With a client-side certificate, a compromised password is not enough to break into EAP-TLS enabled systems because the intruder still needs to have the client-side certificate; indeed, a password is not even needed, as it is only used to encrypt the client-side certificate for storage. Wireless networking Computer access control protocols. In particular, the following combinations rc expected to be used in practice:.

Note that the user’s name is never transmitted in unencrypted clear text, improving privacy. Citations Publications citing this paper. The EAP-SIM mechanism specifies enhancements to GSM authentication and key agreement whereby multiple authentication triplets can be combined to create authentication responses and session keys of greater strength than the individual GSM triplets. The version negotiation is protected by including the version list and the selected version in the calculation of keying 486 Section 7.


Archived from the original on February 9, EAP is not a wire protocol ; instead it only defines message formats.

Permanent Username The username portion of permanent identity, i. Mutual Authentication and Triplet Exposure Topics Discussed in This Paper.

EAP-AKA and EAP-SIM Parameters

Since some cryptographic properties may depend on the randomness of the nonce, attention should be paid to whether a nonce is required to be random or not. Message Sequence Examples Informative It does not specify an Internet standard of any kind. The standard also describes the conditions under which the AAA key management requirements described in RFC can be satisfied. It is more likely that the physical theft of a smart card would be noticed and the smart card immediately revoked than a typical password theft would be noticed.

Extensible Authentication Protocol – Wikipedia

Views Read Edit 1486 history. After the server is securely authenticated to the client via its CA certificate and optionally the client to the server, the server can then use the established gfc connection “tunnel” to authenticate the client. Lightweight Extensible Authentication Protocol. PANA allows dynamic service provider selection, supports various authentication methods, is suitable for roaming users, and is independent from the link layer mechanisms.

Retrieved from ” https: It supports authentication techniques that are based on the following types of credentials:. The underlying key exchange is resistant to active attack, passive attack, and dictionary attack.


Extensible Authentication Protocol

Key establishment to provide confidentiality and integrity during the authentication 41186 in phase 2. In general, a nonce can be predictable e. PEAPv1 was defined in draft-josefsson-pppext-eap-tls-eap through draft-josefsson-pppext-eap-tls-eap[36] and PEAPv2 was defined in versions beginning with draft-josefsson-pppext-eap-tls-eap The EAP server may also include derived keying material in the message it sends to the authenticator.

It is worth noting that the PAC file is issued on a per-user basis. BlunkJohn R. When EAP is invoked by an The EAP-POTP method provides two-factor user ep, meaning that a user needs both physical access to a token and knowledge of a personal identification number PIN to perform authentication.

This is a requirement in RFC sec 7. Distribution of this memo is unlimited. The alternative is to use device passwords instead, but then the device is validated on the network not the user.

The lack of mutual authentication in GSM has also been overcome. 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 If the MAC’s do not match, then eeap peer.
