Abstract


WiMAX offers the wireless connectivity for mobile internet and its security support is compulsory for networks to protect the both user and network because wireless medium is available to all and the attackers can easily access the network. This makes the network less secure for the users and service providers. Currently, WiMAX system is dealing with many security challenges. WiMAX has air interface channel for transmission medium and due to this both the PHY and MAC layers are readily exposed to security threats. There are many solutions are available to protect the WiMAX system such as; powerful WiMAX transmitter, a high gain WiMAX transmission or receiving antenna, and protocol design. However, each solution has its own advantages and disadvantages in particular scenario. In the existing research, there is lack of integrated presentation of solutions to all the security issues of mobile WiMAX network. In this paper, a system is proposed to provide more security for admittance control system for WiMAX system to prevent from network usage from the unauthorized persons. In the proposed system a fingerprint based system is designed to secure WiMAX system from the network usage of unauthorized persons. The system is developed using MATLAB Simulink model and design is successfully verified for real-time fingerprint. The designed system offers the robustness and reliability of managing the users of WiMAX system.
