  "abstract": "E-Learning enables the users to learn at anywhere at<br>\nany time. In E-Learning systems, authenticating the E-Learning user<br>\nhas security issues. The usage of appropriate communication<br>\nnetworks for providing the internet connectivity for E-learning is<br>\nanother challenge. WiMAX networks provide Broadband Wireless<br>\nAccess through the Multicast Broadcast Service so these networks<br>\ncan be most suitable for E-Learning applications. The authentication<br>\nof E-Learning user is vulnerable to session hijacking problems. The<br>\nrepeated authentication of users can be done to overcome these<br>\nissues. In this paper, session based Profile Caching Authentication is<br>\nproposed. In this scheme, the credentials of E-Learning users can be<br>\ncached at authentication server during the initial authentication<br>\nthrough the appropriate subscriber station. The proposed cache based<br>\nauthentication scheme performs fast authentication by using cached<br>\nuser profile. Thus, the proposed authentication protocol reduces the<br>\ndelay in repeated authentication to enhance the security in ELearning.",
