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 reliable and confidential wireless networks. This project is to establish a new paradigm to secure wireless networks by developing network engineering techniques exploiting intrinsic physical channel properties and network configuration such as spatial node distribution and communication protocol for enhancing wireless security. The general aim is to develop physical-layer security techniques and integrated-layer security techniques with demonstrating through theoretical models and proof-of-principle experiments.
