radius

One of the two forearm bones, the other being the ULNA. The radius is on the thumb side and lies parallel to the ulna when the palm is facing forward. When the hand is rotated so that the thumb turns inward, the upper end of the radius rotates on a boss on the lower end of the upper arm bone (HUMERUS) but the lower end crosses over the ulna.

After that, nMAG performs the AAA operations with AAA server. Based on this, n-MAG performs the authentication process and responds with an aggregated RA message to the coordinator.
After that, n-MAG performs the AAA query and reply operations with AAA server for authentication for all body sensors, and then n-MAG performs the PBU operations with LMA for all body sensors.
In our simulation, the propagation model is LOG DISTANCE PROPAGATION and the propagation loss model is the LOG DISTANCE PASS LOSS, the loss in the Signal-to-Noise-Ratio is 5 dB, the transmission power is 30 dB, the transmission/reception gain is 0 dB, the ratio of CP time to useful time is 0.25, the FFT size is 256 and the number of hops between the ASN-GW/WIF and AAA server is 3.
As a result of a successful EAP authentication between the MS and AAA server as in Fig.
1-(a), [PMK.sub.1] and [PMK.sub.2] are distributed to [BS.sub.1] and [BS.sub.2], respectively, by the AAA server. When the MS starts a handover from [BS.sub.0] to [BS.sub.1], the MS and [BS.sub.1] can perform the TEK 3-way Handshake based on [PMK.sub.1] without performing another full EAP authentication.
First, it is assumed there is a pre-established security association between the MS and the AAA server, based on which the MS is initially allowed to enter the Mobile WiMAX network and a key hierarchy is also established as in (1).
In order to re-connect with the target BS ([BS.sub.1]), another full EAP authentication should be performed between the MS and AAA server via the [BS.sub.1].
The AAA resolution process can be performed for all the above mentioned protocols and there are multiple AAA servers associated with agent routers, which are implemented at a different level of the router hierarchy.
* There are AAA servers in the subnets called AAAF's.
