Proxy MIPv6 (PMIPv6) provides network-based mobility management without the participation of mobile node. Security and privacy issues are the main obstacles during mobile’s access authentication in PMIPv6 network. A secure anonymous authentication scheme (SAAS) based on proxy group signature is proposed in this paper to achieve mutual authentication between mobile node and mobility access gateway. Anonymity is guaranteed through the identity-based proxy group signature. The formal security proof through SVO logic and the performance analysis demonstrate that the proposed scheme is both robust and efficient.
