In this paper, we design and propose an efficient and secure authentication method for global and local binding update in HMIPv6 as well as for fast handover in HMIPv6. Also, we introduce a group key management scheme among MAP and ARs in a MAP domain and use a ticket to authenticate local binding update message. We analyze the security and for the comparison with other schemes, analyze performance using the random-walk mobility model and present numerical results based on it.
