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 .

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. The username portion of permanent identity, i.

This would allow for situations much like HTTPS, where a wireless hotspot allows free access and does not authenticate station clients but station clients wish to use encryption IEEE Fall Back to Full Authentication It was co-developed by Funk Software and Certicom and is widely supported across platforms.

PANA allows dynamic service provider selection, supports various authentication methods, is suitable for roaming users, and is independent from the link layer mechanisms. There are currently about 40 different methods defined. The packet format and the use of attributes are specified in Section 8.

Extensible Authentication Protocol

Network Working Group H. The lack of mutual authentication is a weakness in GSM authentication. In particular, the following combinations are expected to be used in practice:.

The lack of mutual authentication in GSM has also been overcome. The 3rd generation AKA mechanism includes mutual authentication, replay protection, and derivation of longer session keys. 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 From Eap-si, the free encyclopedia.

Mutual Authentication and Triplet Exposure The derived bit cipher key Kc is not strong enough for data networks in which stronger and eapsim keys are required. Microsoft Exchange Server Unleashed. Fast re-authentication is based on keys derived on full authentication. A value that is used at most once or that is never repeated within the same cryptographic context. Used on full authentication only.

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 and software. Protected success indications are discussed in Section 6.

In-band provisioning—provide the peer with a shared secret to be used in secure phase 1 conversation. Used on fast re-authentication only. Archived from the original on The underlying key exchange is resistant to active attack, passive attack, and dictionary attack. EAP is in wide use. Traditionally a smart card distributed by a GSM operator.

EAP Types – Extensible Authentication Protocol Types information

The username portion of pseudonym identity, i. Permanent Identity The permanent identity of the peer, including an NAI realm portion in environments where a realm is used.

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

The highest security available is when the “private keys” of client-side certificate are housed in smart cards.

Extensible Authentication Protocol – Wikipedia

In general, a nonce can be predictable e. The protocol only specifies chaining multiple EAP mechanisms and not any specific method. Archived from the original on 26 November A3 and A8 Algorithms 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.

Since some cryptographic properties may depend on the randomness of the nonce, attention should be paid to whether a nonce is required dfc be random or not. Additionally a number of vendor-specific methods and new proposals exist. It can use an existing and widely deployed authentication protocol and infrastructure, incorporating legacy password mechanisms and authentication databases, while the secure tunnel provides 416 from eavesdropping and man-in-the-middle attack. GSM cellular networks use a subscriber identity module card to carry out user authentication.

This is a requirement in RFC sec 7. A fast re-authentication identity of the peer, including an NAI realm portion in environments where a realm is used.

EAP Types – Extensible Authentication Protocol Types

Note that the user’s name is never transmitted in unencrypted clear text, improving privacy. The mechanism also includes network authentication, user anonymity support, result indications, and a fast re-authentication procedure.

It does not specify an Internet standard of any kind. This packet may also include attributes for requesting the subscriber identity, as specified in Section 4. Wireless networking Computer access control protocols.

Integrity and Replay Protection, and Confidentiality Ewp-sim is an authentication framework, not a specific authentication mechanism. Retrieved from ” https: In general, a nonce can be predictable e. Overview Figure 1 shows an overview of the EAP-SIM full authentication procedure, wherein optional protected success indications are not used. This document frequently uses the following terms and abbreviations: This greatly simplifies the setup procedure since a certificate is not needed on every client.
