Abstract

Demand of public wireless LAN has rapidly increased owing to growing overseas visitors. However, security measures such as encryption or authentication are insufficient because present public wireless LANs place a significance on easiness of its use. This produces an increasing risk of attacks for intercepting data. Furthermore, as it is impossible to validate correctness of access points, users can easily be connected with spoofed access points and can be guided toward malicious sites. This paper proposes the mutual authentication method for public wireless LANs based on BLE beacon data and clarifies its effectiveness.
