Authentication architecture for mobile end-to-end communication (Recommendation no. X.1124)

Principles and Recommendations

Recommendation ITU-T X.1124 describes a service layer authentication architecture for mobile end to-end data communication between mobile users and various service providers in the network. The generic negotiation mechanisms and authentication procedures specified in this Recommendation support both those entities that have miscellaneous authentication capabilities and those entities that have differentiated security requirements. The authentication addressed in this Recommendation is used for service providers and requesters and is independent of network access authentication of the mobile users.
