The incontestable MMPay scheme has been devised from existing micropayment schemes emulating their good attributes and eliminating security vulnerabilities and difficulties, which includes: hash-chain based variable length payment instrument, user's payment certificate at smartcard, shared and mixed signature scheme, and an efficient redemption approach. The OPNET-simulation results show that the pricing contact response-times are little lengthy but have no effect on data communication; payments and hand-offs are efficient; and the scheme has no effect on data communication ETE-delay and throughput. Thus, the scheme is secure, efficient and lightweight, and will be a practical solution for future small to large-scale WLAN mesh networks enabling faster hand-off.
