A mobile IPv6 services exposes its vulnerability when a mobile node is roaming across the subnets which belongs to the different domains. The AAA infrastructure is strongly recommended when the ISPs need to authenticate the mobile user come from the different domains. In addition to the basic requirements for AAA service, the authentication latency and AAA message overhead should be minimized for contiguity of the service. This paper considers the roaming service with AAA infrastructure in Mobile IPv6 and proposes the key distribution method to authenticate the mobile node with secure manner by reducing and optimizing the messages exchanged between AAA entities. The effectiveness of the proposed scheme is confirmed using the cost analysis. The result shows at least 50% of performance enhancement.
