Title
(EN) System and method for seamless user equipment authentication
Abstract
(EN)

This invention relates to a method and a system for performing seamless authentication and identification of a mobile subscriber requesting to access a 3rd Party Merchant's online platform. The subscriber verification system intercepts a message sent from a first network node to a second network node during a data session establishment procedure. The subscriber verification system extracts a first set of identification values associated with a user equipment (UE) from the intercepted message. After the data session is established, the UE sends an encrypted request to access the Merchant server. The Merchant server identifies a second set of identification values associated with the encrypted request and sends them for validation to the subscriber verification system. The second set of identification values is compared against the first set of identification values. If the two set of identification values match, the UE is authenticated.
