    NetBill is a business model set of protocols, and software implementation for commerce in information goods and other network-delivered services. It has very low transaction costs for micropayments (around 1 cent for a 10 cent item), protects the privacy of the transaction, and is highly scalable. Of special interest is the authors new certified delivery mechanism which delivers information goods ... View full abstract»

    To provide the proper privacy and authentication for a PCS phone, some cryptographic system will be necessary. The article defines requirements that a cryptographic system used for PCS would need to meet. It does not attempt to define the cryptographic system. It does provide a template for examining cryptographic systems to choose between cryptographic alternatives. Some of the cryptographic requ... View full abstract»

    The US Department of Defense (DOD) is a large user of both e-mail and security services. The introduction of commercial wireless communications and networks, and the recognition by industry of the need for security has provided the opportunity for development and trials of a wireless, secure e-mail service. The Center for Systems Engineering at the Defense Information Systems Agency has developed ... View full abstract»

    Describes progress in the development of authentication and key agreement (AKA) processes for personal communication systems (PCS). A conceptual framework is first established; this is a three-part general model that characterizes all AKA techniques. Then three proposed AKA methods are compared using this model. These methods are the so-called secret key method of GSM, the secret key method of Uni... View full abstract»

    The authors first discuss the basic cellular digital packet data (CDPD) architecture and its authentication protocols. They then present threats to the network. Next, they investigate the basic requirements of the security architecture and goals in light of attacks. Then they present the improved authentication protocol in operation, and how it deals with faults. Next, they add authenticated key e... View full abstract»
