Recent e-commerce requires an attribute authentication that provides users with distinctive and unique internet service, as well as user identification. Despite widespread awareness of the importance of attribute authentication, the attribute authentication service is not yet used widely due to it’s inconvenience and inefficiency. These defects especially has a bad effect to mobile users in wireless networks. This paper described the weakness of current attribute authentication mechanisms and proposed a Public Key Certificate(PKC)-based attribute authentication model considering an efficiency and convenience. The user who has a PKC in a mobile device can use the efficient attribute authentication without additional procedure.
