—Mobility management being a decisive role in wireless communication networks which effectively distribute the services to the relevant users on the move. A wireless network which is richer and fixed in bandwidth is specified as IEEE802.16 and is promoted and launched by an industrial forum Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX). WiMAX has the challenge of prolonged Handover Delay time. In our proposed method, to minimize the time delay passport handover using Reserved CIDs (RCID) are used which is common and unique to all BSs of that particular ASN. MS with RCID can roam around all BSs within ASN without any authentication for six handovers. By this the handoff delay can be reduced by 33.33%. In IEEE 802.16, however, security has been considered as the main issue during the design of the protocol but some issues still need to be solved on threats, risk and vulnerability in real situations. IEEE 802.16 employs an authenticated client/server key management protocol in which the BS, the server, controls the distribution of keying material to the client SS and is based on the PKMv2 (Privacy Key Management Version 2) protocol. This paper discusses about the implementation of RSA and EAP based PKMv2.This mechanism is analyzed in mobile WiMAX model and the protocols are developed in MATLAB GUIDE.
