WMNs (Wireless Mesh Networks) are a new wireless broadband network structure based completely on IP technologies and have rapidly become a broadband access measure to offer high capacity, high speed and wide coverage. WMN is such a network that doesn’t need to rely on fixed infrastructure and is operated over an open, wireless medium. Any user within the covered area of radio wave may access the network. Therefore, authentication for network access is the first line of defense that can prevent unauthorized users from accessing the network. An authentication scheme is thus a key mechanism to ensure secure access. In this paper, we propose a trusted authentication protocol based on Trusted Platform Module (TPM) in which the validity of both the user and the terminal device is verified. Thus, only trusted terminals used by legal users are allowed to access a WMN.
