Special Session V

Physical-layer security

The concept of physical layer security is becoming attractive, since it solely uses the physical properties of a wireless channel to establish security. This special session addresses recent signal processing advances in physical layer security and will cover all aspects of physical layer security from the analysis of fundamental performance limits to practical and experimental aspects. Prospective authors are invited to previously unpublished contributions including (but not limited to):

  • Secrecy capacity for multi-user systems
  • Performance limits of secure multi-user systems
  • Secrecy for multi-antenna systems
  • Code design for wiretap channels
  • Secret key agreement over wireless channels
  • Implementation and practical issues
