Title: Using the EAP Framework for Fast Media Independent Handover Authentication
Published: November 17, 2008
Abstract: In this paper we compare different authentication techniques that may be used in order to reduce the time and resources required to perform a handover, namely, re-authentication and pre-authentication.  We provide a detailed analysis of each mechanism, and highlight key performance trade-offs for select scenarios and parameters of interest.
