  • Abstract It is necessary to authenticate users when they want to access services in WLANs. Extensible
    Authentication Protocol (EAP) is an authentication framework widely used in WLANs. Authentication
    mechanisms built on EAP are called EAP methods. The requirements for EAP
    methods in WLAN authentication have been defined in RFC 4017. Besides, low computation
    cost and forward secrecy, excluded in RFC 4017, are noticeable requirements in WLAN authentication.
    However, all EAP methods and authentication schemes designed for WLANs so
    far do not satisfy all of the above requirements. Therefore, we will propose an EAP method
    which utilizes three factors, stored secrets, passwords, and biometrics, to verify users. Our
    proposed method fully satisfies 1) the requirements of RFC 4017, 2) forward secrecy, and
    3) lightweight computation. Moreover, the privacy of biometrics is protected against the authentication
    server, and the server can flexibly decide whether passwords and biometrics are
    verified in each round or not.
