Authentication issues in multi-service residential multi-access networks

Authentication Issues in Multi-Service Residential Access Networks. In Proceedings of the 6th IFIP/IEEE International Conference on Management of Multimedia Networks and Services, Belfast, Northern Ireland, Ireland, September 7-10, 2003.

The TORRENT system allows residential customers to choose amongst a variety of service offerings, over a range of Core Networks and subject to user requirements such as QoS, mobility, cost and availability. These issues place requirements on authentication for network access, with a need for mutual authentication of the RG and the LAP. This paper examines the authentication issues for the TORRENT system and presents a public key based authentication protocol for mutually authenticating the RG and LAP.
