Recently, researchers came up with a new security approach, from information theory fundamentals, which is focused on the exploitation of the intrinsic property of the radio environment and of the electromagnetic waves to produce security at physical layer, with no assumption on the computational capabilities of eavesdroppers and with the added benefit of reducing the load on the security protocols at the upper levels.
The course will give the fundamentals of physical layer security approach for wireless networks, and in particular, how it can help not only by adding security at one layer, but also in other aspects like key distribution.
