Une architecture d'administration de cartes à puce, similaire à OTA, et dédiée aux réseaux sans fil IP

Abstract : IP wireless networks are invading most of our life areas. But the lack of secured access of these networks is a serious brake for the development of new services in them. In our work, we propose to use smart cards as security modules, as it is the case in the mobile radio telephony networks GSM. For this purpose in spite of smart cards limitations of their computational and storage capabilities, we suggest a new protocol named EAP-SSC (EAP Secured Smartcard Channel). This protocol is dedicated to the mutual authentication using both symmetrical and asymmetrical cryptographic keys contexts. As IP wireless networks are operated by various administrative authorities, it is necessary to anticipate the consideration of the diversity of the underlined security politics. So, we propose a platform named OpenEAPSmartcard intended to be set up in every Java card of the market place. This platform is opened and easy for being convenient for new authentication scenarios chosen by the computer programmers. Security of cryptographic materials stored on the servers is not safeguarded, because of the operating systems flaws and vulnerabilities; access points closed to the users are less sheltered from attacks. For that reason we suggest to create authentication micro-servers that correspond to EAP servers included in the Java smart cards. The deployment of those micro-servers on a large scale will cause the problem of keeping them up to date. We propose a software architecture called TEAPM (Trusted EAP Module) which heart is formed by EAP and EAP-TLS surrounded by XML and HTTP protocols. This architecture allows the "On The Air" secured administration of the micro-servers.
