Design and Prototypical Implementation of an Accounting System for an AAA Server

State: completed by Adrian Bachmann

Most of the Internet Service Providers today require a user to be authenticated and authorized for using their services (access control). The classic AAA (Authentication, Authorization and Accounting) term describes a collection of requirements (techniques) of delivering a secure approach to Service Provisioning.

The key aim of this thesis work is to design and prototypically implement the Accounting module for an AAA server, based on the Generic AAA Architecture defined in RFC 2903 and DIAMETER protocol specifications. The resulting protocol and architecture shall provide a solution for offering accounting services to a Mobile Grid. It will also be used at a later stage together with various charging models for creating a charging mechanism for future mobile grids.
