Design of user access authenticaion and authorization system for VoIP Service, Kwangwoon
- Ho-Kyung Yang
VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol), which provides voice calls as well as additional services at cheaper prices than PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network), is gaining ground over the latter, which had been the dominant telephone network in the past. This kind of a VoIP service is evolving into a dedicated mVoIP service for the smartphone which allows calls to be made at cheap prices using a WiFi network, as the number of smartphone users is skyrocketing as of late. While an increase in the user base is expected for mVoIP, a packet network is an open network which means anyone can easily gain access and so there can be various problems. To mitigate this, in this paper an authentication system is designed which has an AA (Attribute Authority) server added to VoIP in order to increase security and discriminate user access. In this paper a system for addressing security vulnerabilities from the increase in the use of VoIP services and providing differentiated services according to user access privileges is designed. This paper is organized as follows: Chapter 1 gives the introduction; Chapter 2 is on related research; Chapter 3 describes the proposed technique and system; Chapter 4 implements the system and analyzes its the performance; and Chapter 5 gives the conclusions.
