Network Engineering Techniques for Wireless Secrecy (NETS)

Dr Jemin LEE, Feb 2014, 3 years

Wireless security is a critical issue in many applications when people rely on wireless networks for transmitting important and private information. Although wireless communications offer reliable and efficient communication, the vulnerabilities that inherently reside in wireless medium can result in security risks. This motivates the team’s principal research on wireless security for the design of […]
