Abstract
In Global System for Mobile (GSM) communication based wireless networks, authentication delay is an important factor during handover. In present system, mobile nodes are authenticated by its home Authentication Centre (AuC). In this paper a Mobile Information Centre (MIC) is introduced within a Mobile Switching Centre (MSC) and a Mobile Information Centre Authentication Algorithm (MICAuA) is written to authenticate the Mobile Node (MN) directly from MIC. This method reduces authentication delay, network traffic and the packet drops in Inter Mobile Switching Centre (Inter-MSC) handover. A dual authentication procedure is also used for the verification of a mobile node (MN). The proposed algorithm saves the processing time by 16% compared to the existing algorithm.
