Wireless LAN, Authentication, Interworking, 802.1x, and EAP-MD5


In this paper, we investigate the authentication method which supports a subscriber to pass the authentication procedure even in areas of other wireless LAN systems as well as in areas of its own wireless LAN system. In the proposed method, the access point or the authentication server of other wireless LAN systems plays a role of the interworking agent between the subscriber and the authentication server of the subscriber's wireless LAN system. The proposed authentication method is designed on the basis of the 802.1x and EAP-MD5 protocols.
