With the rapid development of mobile networks, secure communication technologies for mobile users are received much attentions from researchers. Recently, Chung et al. proposed an anonymous mutual authentication scheme for communication inter-devices in mobile networks. Some previous literatures are shown that their scheme has some security weaknesses. In this paper, we also point out their scheme violates perfect forward secrecy and is insecure against a replay attack.
