The 4th Generation of mobile communications has been designed to fulfill strict security requirements. However many publications found critical vulnerabilities especially in the authentication and key agreement protocol which is the essential part of the security of the network.
This project intends to give an in-depth insight into this issue. It focuses on the enhancement of the Authentication and Key Agreement protocol in 4G mobile networks. The research to be done aims to present an in-depth study of the areas of vulnerability for 4G standard. The aim is then to research and analyze the solutions presented in order to overcome the attacks made on the 4G Network and then to simulate similar attacks on the proposed solutions for the 4G Network, specifically on the AKA Protocol using the AVISPA Simulator.
There is an urgent need to be in synchronization with the evolution of wireless communication and the much-anticipated 4G standard, which promises wonders. This Proposal explores the trends in the evolution of wireless communication and its advantages in security over the earlier systems. It outlines the requirements that are to be met by the 4G standard and also attempts to analyze the technical challenges that demand solutions during the course of the development and implementation of the next generation of wireless communication.
The development of the 4G wireless standard began in 2005 and is expected to be fully completed approximately by mid-2015. Researchers all around the world and industry communities are racing against time to find solutions for open issues in 4G networks. Hopefully as a second objective, all the researches and findings help me to contribute in providing a new extension for the AKA Protocol.
