    Abstract

    In this paper, we introduce a session key distribution mechanism for fast secure handover in wireless mobile networks. The proposed mechanism is based on the stream control transmission protocol in where a mobile node actively changes its IP address without its connection loss. When a mobile node moves between different access routers, the required session key at a new access router is distributed previously through the tunnel established between the previous access router and the new access router. Due to the reduced key distribution time, the mobile node achieves its secure seamless handover. The provided performance analysis proves that the proposed mechanism provides the reduced signaling cost compared to existing mobility protocols. In addition, the proposed mechanism reduces the handover latency so that the reduced amount of packet loss provides the stable handover performance for real-time applications.
