One of the network communication systems in our surroundings that has a significant influence on our day-to-day lives is the satellite network. Many authentications and key agreement procedures have been developed for satellite communication systems in order to ensure secure communication. None, however, offer the satellite communication system with the desired security characteristics. Using elliptic curve cryptography and a hash function, this article provides a safe and efficient architecture for satellite network systems. By employing key agreement, users can safely access services offered by the network control centre in the proposed protocol. The suggested framework is resistant to a wide range of security threats and includes a variety of security features and capabilities. Users can easily update their passwords using the proposed protocol. The random oracle model is used to show the suggested protocol security. We provide security verification of the proposed protocol by using AVISPA software tool against man in the middle attack and replay attack. Further, we demonstrates the informal security of the proposed protocol and shows that proposed protocol secure against various security attacks and maintain various cryptographic security properties. We further show that the proposed protocol has lower computation and transmission overhead than competing methods. As a consequence, the proposed satellite network protocol is both efficient and secure.
