A secure billing architecture for 4G wireless networks

Ring, Jared W., Foo, Ernest, & Looi, Mark H. (2007) A secure billing architecture for 4G wireless networks. In Clark, A., McPherson, M., & Mohay, G. (Eds.) AusCERT Asia Pacific Information Technology Security Conference (AusCERT2007): Refereed R&D Stream, 20th - 25th May 2007, Gold Coast, Qld..


Fourth Generation (4G) wireless networks allow ubiquitous pervasive data and voice connections for mobile users. Users will no longer have a single relationship with one access provider, but a relationship with a Biller or Agent which enables them access to the 4G world. The role of the Biller is to negotiate with providers that users have requested a service from. This situation gives rise to a number of security and trust issues between the 4G participants. The contribution of this paper is the proposal of a security architecture that provides informed consent for users and providers, per unit billing and per use billing with non-repudiation.We provide an informal analysis of the performance and security of this new architecture.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
