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].

This document frequently uses the following terms and abbreviations: Fast Re-authentication Identity A fast re-authentication identity of the peer, including an NAI realm portion in environments where a realm is used. Sung Ya-ChinY. 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 An introduction to LEAP authentication”.

EAP is an authentication framework, not a specific authentication mechanism. There are currently about 40 different methods defined.

The standard also describes the conditions under which the AAA key management requirements described in RFC can be satisfied.

Extensible Authentication Protocol – Wikipedia

Targeting the weaknesses in static WEP”. Note that the user’s name is never transmitted in unencrypted clear text, improving privacy. The client can, but does not have to be authenticated via a CA -signed PKI certificate to the server.


Flooding the Authentication Centre Key establishment to provide confidentiality and integrity during the authentication process in phase 2.

EAP-AKA and EAP-SIM Parameters

It can use an existing and widely deployed authentication protocol and infrastructure, incorporating legacy password mechanisms and authentication databases, fap the secure tunnel provides protection from eavesdropping and man-in-the-middle attack. If the MAC’s do not match, then the peer. The Kc key is originally intended to be used as an encryption key over the air interface, but in this protocol, it is used for deriving keying material and is not directly used.

Microsoft Exchange Server Unleashed.

It is worth noting that the PAC file is issued on a per-user basis. The protocol only specifies chaining multiple EAP mechanisms and not any specific method. Topics Discussed in This Paper. Pseudonym Identity A pseudonym identity of the peer, including an Sap realm portion in environments where a realm is used.

Extensible Authentication Protocol

The fast re-authentication procedure is described in Section 5. Distribution of this memo is unlimited. 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 cellular networks use a subscriber identity module card to carry out user authentication. Archived from the original on Format, Generation and Usage of Peer Identities The version negotiation is protected by including the version list and the selected version in the calculation of keying material Section 7.


EAP-AKA and EAP-SIM Parameters

The EAP server may also include derived keying material in the message it sends to the authenticator. The 3rd generation AKA mechanism includes mutual authentication, replay protection, and derivation of longer session keys.

Protocol for Carrying Authentication for Network Access. WPA2 and potentially authenticate the wireless hotspot. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This packet may also include attributes for requesting the rrc identity, as specified in Section 4.

The highest security available is when rcc “private keys” of client-side certificate are housed in smart rf. In addition, the private key on a smart card is typically encrypted using a PIN that only the owner of the smart card knows, minimizing its utility for a thief even before the card has been reported stolen and revoked. EAP is not a wire protocol; instead it only defines message formats. Key distribution Cryptography Session key Documentation. Used on full authentication only.

This vulnerability is mitigated by manual PAC provisioning or by using server certificates for the PAC provisioning phase.
