SECURE TRANSPARENT MOBILITY - Secure Mobility Infrastructure using Mobile IP

Mark W. Andrews, Ronan J. Skehill, Michael Barry, Sean McGrath

Abstract

Mobility has become an integral part of modern computing. It increases user flexibility by releasing the potential of fixed data. Reliance on a static computing platform is not sufficient for the future needs of nomadic users. Portable e-mail devices have become popular in recent years due to their simplicity and functionality. These devices give the average user transparent access to their e-mail from any location. Similar transparent access does not exist for general notebook or Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) computing environments. This paper addresses such access, and details a secure mobility architecture from which users can extract greater value. It utilises Mobile IP, IP Security, Internet Key Exchange and Firewalls to provide a comprehensive mobility solution. It evaluates a test-bed in which this secure mobility solution was deployed, and discusses the viability of a secure, transparent architecture which supports mobility.
