Abstract

Specific security technologies for mobile applications and services – such as SIM/USIM/PKI SIM cards, hash chain generated security tokens for secure Mobile IP registration and mobile agent authorization, personal and public signature servers for mobile devices, and identity based public key cryptography - are surveyed. The Finnish mobile electronic identity case is presented as a case study. Two development proposals supporting the use of mobile certificates based on local PKI SIM access are outlined. The first proposal is a system providing a short-link communication channel between a PC application and a mobile phone PKI SIM. The other proposal is a prototype SIM enabling access from a mobile phone application. A test environment for Mobile IP security solutions using identity based public key cryptography is also proposed.
