A Ticket Based Binding Update Authentication Method for Trusted Nodes in Mobile IPv6 Domain

With the increasing usage of Mobile IPv6 in the mobile internet environment, the need of binding update authentication methods to protect malicious biding updates becomes more prevalent. The current authentication methods have tried to secure the biding update process between two previously unknown nodes on the assumption that no global security infrastructure available. However, the assumption is improper for a network domain where involved nodes can establish trust with each other. In this paper, for such a network domain, we propose a ticket based BU authentication method. Our proposed method achieves more efficient and secure binding update through tickets that are issued based on pre-established trust among the involved nodes.
