In a widely deployed VoIP system tens of thousands of clients compete for the SIP proxy server's authentication service. SIP protocol implementations have to meet certain QoS and security requirements. In this study new ID-based protocols are proposed for the SIP authentication and key agreement protocols. These protocols minimize the use of expensive pairing functions but still resist notable attacks. The security of the proposed protocols are analyzed and demonstrated with security proofs based on the BJM security model. Finally, the performance overhead of the proposed protocols are compared to ID-based SIP authentication and key agreement protocols given in the literature.
