Abstract: The existing solution of channel and communication protection while performing vertical handoff is less capable to withstand potential threat. Not only this, it also results in significant forms of computational burden and increased authentication latency owing to the usage of either complex or flawed cryptographic protocols. The existing literatures were reviewed to find that studies towards faster handoff don’t converge with the studies towards secure handoff at any point. Hence, a novel mathematical modeling is introduced where core emphasize was to reduce the computational burden of the encryption scheme during vertical handoff scheme with a mobile user migrating from WLAN to CDMA network. It was achieved without compromising with the security strength of the proposed authentication policy and offered a good balance between faster authentication and robust secure communication. The study outcome was found to offer superior authentication time in contrast to existing extensible transport layer security.
