This letter proposes an integrated authentication model for NGN to access the wired/wireless infrastructure. The existing authentication model based on port-based access control is not best suited for integrated network environments. The main focus of this paper is on developing a feasible authentication model using the authenticator positioned in the control function in the NGN.
