In 2009, Chen et al. proposed a satellite communication system for mobile devices to achieve wide communication. In this scheme, there are some security loopholes that need to be fixed since the mobile device was stolen. Since a malicious attacker intercepts the mobile user's information they can proceed with different attacks. Hence, we propose a novel scheme to improve the mobile user's communication protocol to enhance security. In this paper, the mobile satellite communication system achieves low computation and increases the system's security. The mobile user need not worry about sensitive information being revealed or stolen by malicious attacks, so that the mobile satellite communication system can be widely promoted in real life.
