Wireless network authentication schemes have been researched forabout a decade, and associated security problems explored by manyresearchers. In 2004, Zhu and Ma proposed an authentication schemefor wireless environments. Afterwards other researchers proposedimprovements according to Zhu-Ma scheme. Mutual authentication isone of the most important issues. To the best of our knowledge,there is no scheme that allows a foreign agent to authenticate thehome agent and mobile user at the same time. Towards this purpose,we propose a simultaneous authentication scheme based on chaoticmaps, and describe how our proposed scheme addresses varioussecurity problems while maintain anonymity.
