Application: Network access authentication method and device (Patent ID: US20240031800A1)

The patent filed by ZTE Corp. describes a network access authentication method and device that involves receiving an authentication request message from a serving network, determining the synchronization of user equipment pseudonym identifiers, and obtaining an encrypted IMSI for network access authentication. This method addresses the issue of asynchronous pseudonym identifiers between user equipment and the home network during network access processes, providing a solution for such scenarios.

The claims in the patent detail a method for wireless communication involving transmitting attach requests between serving networks, handling identity request messages, and authentication processes. The method includes steps for transmitting encrypted subscription identities, using public keys for encryption, and responding to authentication requests. Additionally, the patent describes a device with processors and memory to execute the communication method, as well as a non-transitory storage medium storing code for implementing the method. Overall, the patent focuses on improving network access authentication processes by addressing challenges related to pseudonym identifiers and user context retrieval in wireless communication networks.
