Radiator’s optional RADIUS EAP-SIM module now supports the new EAP-AKA’ (AKA Prime) protocol alongside EAP-AKA. EAP-AKA (RFC 4187) was designed to use 3G USIM modules for mutual authentication.
EAP-AKA’ (RFC 5447) extends the security features of EAP-AKA by allowing for (and using) new key generation algorithms, and also preventing bidding-down attacks on EAP-AKA. The Radiator AuthBy AKA module can now be configured to support AKA and/or AKA`.
Leading edge support for this emerging authentication protocol is yet another addition to Radiator’s ever-expanding features list.
