Wimax security for real-world network service provider deployments

Wimax could well represent the future of service provider infrastructure, but how secure is it?


Wimax security guidelines from IEEE specify some powerful standards-based security controls, including AES encryption and EAP-TLS authentication. But there is a substantial gap between the standards and a fully secure, real-world Wimax infrastructure. This paper examines the challenging differences in security design and integration requirements that security standards don’t address.
