Extensible Authentication Protocol Method for GSM Subscriber Identity Module, or EAP-SIM, is an Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) mechanism for authentication and session key distribution using the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) Subscriber Identity Module (SIM). EAP-SIM is described in RFC 4186. GSM cellular networks use a subscriber identity module (SIM) card to carry out user authentication. EAP-SIM use a SIM authentication algorithm between the client and a Authentication, Authorization and Accounting (AAA) server providing mutual authentication between the client and the network. In EAP-SIM the communication between the SIM card and the AuC replaces the need for a pre-established secret between the client and the AAA server.
