AutoKEY: Wireless Channel-based Autonomous Key Management for the IoT

Aug 02, 2016

Physical layer security (PHYSEC) is a promising approach for autonomous key distribution and management in the IoT and ubiquitously connected systems. PHYSEC exploits the intrinsic randomness and reciprocity of the radio channel between several nodes to establish cryptographic keys in a plug-and-play manner, to achieve information-theoretic security without complex ciphers, and to securely pair devices. Major limitation currently is the poor key material in stationary environment making the ...

COIN: Generalized MaxWeight Algorithms over Non-Convex Rate Regions in Wireless Networks with Multiple Antennas

The holy grail of network information theory is to compute the capacity region of wireless networks: however, it is questionable whether this goal can be achieved soon. Therefore, information theorists and communication engineers increasingly favor simpler but more realistic goals, such as finding approximate expressions for the capacity region within predictable error margins. An intriguing approach in this direction is the linear deterministic model (LDM) recently developed by Avestimehr et ...

Compressed Sensing Algorithms for Structured Massive MIMO

Jun 01, 2016

Massive MIMO, i.e., very large scale multiuser multi-antenna technology, is widely expected to play a fundamental role in meeting the target performance of the future generation of wireless/cellular networks, commonly indicated as ``5G’’. The key idea is that by scaling up the number of jointly processed antennas at the infrastructure side (i.e., in the base stations), the wireless channel, notoriously affected by random propagation effects, converges to a deterministic limit in which the ...

Security in the context of future communication challenges and compressive sensing

Nov 01, 2015

The proposal suggests a concerted effort to tackle and resolve key challenges in the development of communication technologies—examining physical layers of security in future mobile phone and quantum technologies that offer the perspective of unconditionally secure communication. It exploits and further develops methods of compressed sensing as the main “hammer” to be used. The proposal brings together significant expertise from electrical engineering and mobile phone communication, ...
