Hi Rakesh,

Authentication-Information-Request and Authentication-Information-Answer messages are exchanged between MME and HSS as part of Authentication procedure. MME fetches authentication information from HSS and it performs NAS authentication and security procedure with UE.

Once UE is attached successfully with a particular MME, it updates its location (current serving MME and other details) to its HSS.
This is done by exchanging Update Location Request and Update Location Answer messages.

Purge-UE-Request message is triggered by MME towards HSS to inform that UE is no longer connected to MME now. Reason could be detach or User inactivity from long time.

Hope, this answer may help you out.

Does Mme also sends Purge(PUR) to HSS before sending delete session request to SGW when MME receives detach request from enodeb side ?
It would be great if you give your valuable suggestion ?

I saw a scenario where an Identity is requested by MME after successful Authentication and Security mode complete.. As a Response to this message UE is Sending IMEI? what is the need of checking IMEI number after successful authentication? If IMEI is in block list then ongoing Attach procedure is going to be Terminate...? Identity Request intention is mainly to check the IMEI belongs to any one of Black, while or Green list then why cannt MME check for this before Security Mode?
