This master thesis presents how the authentication is handled in two frequently used protocols. It is a study of the authentication procedure in IPsec and TLS where the techniques have been compared based on facts from literature and practical tests. The results in this thesis are to be used as part arguments for continuous development of cooperation between operators using Ericsson´s charging system and content providers.
