Two categories of "security"


The 802.21 architecture as it currently exists has two problems in the
security domain to be solved.

One is the problem of handing off the security of communication
channel as the device roams; it looks like most of the current effort
in the study group is focused on this problem (use cases, roam cases,

The other problem that needs to be solved is binding the various
components of the roaming architecture with secure bindings.  The
802.21 draft architecture has several components as part of the
infrastructure, and we need to solve the problem of making sure these
components are securly bound together and their inter-component
communications is secure.
