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 ...
