Abstract

In this paper we compare different authentication techniques that may be used in order to reduce the time and resources required to perform a handover: namely, re-authentication and pre-authentication. We provide a detailed analysis of each mechanism, and highlight key performance trade-offs for select scenarios and parameters of interest.
