Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Signalling efficient signature based PKI authentication method for wireless communication systems

Kaprynski, M.S. and Girma, D. and Dunlop, J. (2003) Signalling efficient signature based PKI authentication method for wireless communication systems. In: 5th European Personal Mobile Communications Conference, 2003-04-22 - 2003-04-25.

The trend in wireless communication systems is that they will become more flexible and customised One application area envisaged in this regard is the introduction of third party players for provision of enhanced new services. This will require specific security techniques to support new features. Developing the security solutions should take into account requirements of multiparty operation on the one hand and limitation of the wireless bearers on the other hand. This paper addresses issues of provision of fundamental authentication in the multiparty system using a public key infrastructure (PKI), with some preliminary assessment of the proposed technique.
