Today, many security risks are exposed due to the rapid development of mobile communications. Anonymous mutual authentication allows entities to authenticate without revealing any identity information. Recently, numerous the kinds of anonymous mutual authentication schemes were proposed. However, most of them have some security weaknesses. In this paper, we refer the previous works to propose a lightweight anonymous mutual authentication scheme in mobile networks. Informal security analysis is shown that our scheme can resist several attacks. Finally, the performance analysis and comparisons is shown that our scheme is efficient.
