WS-11: Wireless Physical Layer Security (WPLS)
Organizer: Eduard Jorswieck (TU Dresden, Germany)
The emergence of large-scale, dynamic, and decentralized wireless networks imposes new challenges on classical security measures such as cryptography. To this end, researchers have been seeking new solutions to complement cryptography and significantly improve the overall security of wireless communication networks. One of the most promising ideas is to exploit the physical layer characteristics of the wireless channel such as fading or noise, which are traditionally seen as impediments, for improving the security of wireless transmission against passive (e.g., eavesdropping) or active (e.g., jamming) attacks.. This emerging security technique, known as physical layer security, has drawn considerable attention in the past few years. This workshop will bring together academic and industrial researchers in an effort to identify and discuss the major technical challenges and recent results related to physical layer security in wireless networks.
