In this paper, we propose RFID network agent based user mobility support mechanism for secure information transmissions. When a user with RFID tag who enjoys service moves to different attachment points, the user mobility is supported to provide continuously service and the information can be securely transmitted. Although there is an existing study for providing user mobility, it has a problem which the handover latency time is long. To settle this problem, we present a scheme for minimizing handover latency time and compare handover latency time of existing and proposed scheme. We confirm that proposed mechanism has low latency time than existing mechanism by mathematical analysis using the queuing theory and show that proposed mechanism is more superior to the existing mechanism.
