With extensions to current EAP key hierarchy, the EAP re-authentication protocol provides a consistent, method-independent and low-latency re-authentication mechanism to support intra-domain handoff authentication. This paper analyzed the efficiency of the EAP re-authentication protocol, and compared it with that of the EAP-TLS protocol. The result shows that the authentication delay of EAP re-authentication protocol is only twentieth of that in the EAP-TLS protocol.
