- Step 1a: the S-CSCF checks whether the IMS REGISTER request relates to TNA or not. In the case of TNA, the S-CSCF shall behave according to Annex U of this specification. Otherwise, the S-CSCF proceeds to step 2. - Step 2: for a non-IMS-AKA REGISTER request, the S-CSCF next checks whether the request relates to GIBA. In the case of GIBA the S-CSCF shall behave according to Annex T of this specification. Otherwise, the S-CSCF proceeds to step 3. - Step 3: In step 3, the S-CSCF requests the HSS to perform the distinction among SIP Digest and NBA. NOTE_p6: The distinctions in steps 1 and 2 are required because the records of an IMS AKA or GIBA user may reside on an HSS of an earlier release. Such an HSS requires the authentication scheme to be determined by the S-CSCF according to the specification for IMS AKA and GIBA. For subsequent REGISTER requests, the authentication scheme shall not change. P.4.2 Mechanisms for performing steps 1 to 3 in P.4.1 Step 1: The S-CSCF checks for the presence of an Authorization header in the REGISTER request, and, if present, checks further for the presence of an "integrity-protected" flag within this header. If the flag is present and has either the value “yes” or the value “no” the S-CSCF concludes that the REGISTER request relates to IMS AKA. NOTE 1: the "integrity-protected" flag and its values are defined in TS 24.229 [8]. 3GPP 3GPP TS 33.203 V12.67.0 (2014-0609) 92 Release 12

Step 1a: The S-CSCF checks for the presence of an Authorization header in the REGISTER request, and, if present, checks further for the presence of an "integrity-protected" flag within this header. If the flag is present and has the value "auth- done" the S-CSCF concludes that the REGISTER request related to TNA. Step 2: The S-CSCF then shall proceed as follows: If there is no Authorization header in the REGISTER request, and there is either no P-Access-Network-Info header containing the "network-provided" parameter, or there is a P-Access-Network-Info header containing the "network-provided" parameter, in which the access-type parameter indicates 3GPP, and the S-CSCF supports GIBA then GIBA is used. Otherwise, the S-CSCF proceeds to step 3. NOTE 2: P-Access-Network-Info headers not containing the "network-provided" parameter are irrelevant for the above condition. NOTE 3: If an S-CSCF supports both, GIBA and SIP Digest without Authorization header in the initial REGISTER message, then the mechanism described in this step works properly only if the P-CSCF inserts PANI headers as described in Annex P.3 of this specification. Step 3: This step rests on three conditions: 1) The S-CSCF shall know, e.g. using the mechanism in clause P.5, which P-CSCFs in the home network are PANI- aware in the sense of clause P.3. 2) It shall be ensured that P-CSCFs in the home network, which are not PANI-aware, do not connect to TISPAN NASS.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
