A privacy-preserving roaming authentication scheme (PPRAS) for ubiquitous networks is proposed, in which a remote mobile user can obtain the service offered by a foreign agent after being authenticated. In order to protect the mobile user's privacy, the user presents an anonymous identity to the foreign agent with the assistance of his or her home agent to complete the authentication. After that, the user and the foreign agent can establish a session key using the semi-group property of

Furthermore, the user can update the login password and the session key between itself and the foreign agent if necessary. The correctness is proved using BAN logic, and the performance comparison against the existing schemes is given as well.
