Special Session on «Advances on Physical Layer Security for Wireless Communication Networks»

  • Security is a critical issue in wireless networks due to the broadcast nature of wirelesscommunications. This applies in particular to advanced wireless communication networks such as cooperative relaying networks, cognitive radio networks, cognitive cooperative radio networks, decentralized wireless networks, and multi-tier cellular networks. While conventional cryptographic techniques are typically adapted in the upper protocol layers, physical layer security techniques utilize physical layer characteristics such as fading or interference to facilitate a more secure transmission of confidential information. In particular, physical layer security deals with the theoretical analysis, methods, and techniques for increasing the amount of information that can be securely transmitted in the presence of an eavesdropper or attacks.
    The main goal of this Special Session on Advances on Physical Layer Security for Wireless Communication Networks is to bring together researchers and scientists from academia and industry that work in this exciting field to present and discuss their latest research results, explore new ideas and solutions, and to facilitate networking among colleagues.

    :: The topics and technical areas of interest of this special session include, but are not limited to, the following:
    • Signal set and code design for wireless physical layer security
    • Physical layer security for cognitive radio networks
    • Secure cooperative relaying transmission techniques
    • Secrecy capacity of wireless communication networks
    • Physical layer network coding
    • Security threats and countermeasures for cognitive and relaying transmission techniques
    • Cross-layer design techniques for enhanced secrecy at the physical layer
    • Information-theoretic techniques for secure wireless communications
    • Performance assessment of wireless physical layer security techniques
    • Experimental results and testbeds for improving physical layer security
    • Security policies, standards, and regulations
