MOBILE IP: HYBRID CRYPTOGRAPHY SOLUTION FOR SECURED AND SEAMLESS MOBILE COMMUNICATION
There have been steady growth in the market for wireless communications devices, thus, striking a great deal of interest in making sure that mobile wireless computers can connect to the Internet and remain connected to the Internet even as they move from place to place, establishing new links while changing location. IP Mobility which was established to facilitate mobility within a worldwide system of interconnected computer networks gives a scalable solution for different networks by providing efficient mobile computation services based on IP addresses using several applications. In mobile IP, a Mobile Node can continuously communicate with corresponding node without losing connection through constant communication with the Home Agent or Foreign Agent.However, deploying Mobile IP introduces new security issues that if not carefully addressed can have severe consequences for home or Corporate Organizations or National bodies which a more pertinent example is Military Networks. Hence this paper presents a review of cryptographic approaches to Mobile IP security as posited by other researchers, presents our hybrid cryptographic system to help prevent against security threats by providing entity authentication and data confidentiality through the use of advanced public key encryption using ECC algorithm and data integrity services through the use of MD5 hashing is proposed and finally made comparative analysis with the previous works on this subject.
