About this book

Introduction

Securing Emerging Wireless Systems focuses on security for wireless networks by using complementary techniques that aim to invoke unique properties of wireless communications rather than cryptographic solutions.

Throughout this book the authors explore a variety of different lower layer strategies for securing wireless networks. The material builds largely upon non-cryptographic methods, though occasionally cryptography is employed in the solutions to make them more robust and resilient to attacks. The authors also provide information on detection mechanisms and defense strategies that cope with threats to wireless localization infrastructure, attacks on wireless networks that seek to undermine entity identity (e.g. spoofing attacks), jamming and radio interference that can undermine the availability of wireless communications, and privacy threats where an adversary seeks to infer spatial and temporal contextual information surrounding wireless communications. Additionally, the authors explore new paradigms of physical layer security for wireless systems, which can support authentication and confidentiality services by taking advantage of fading properties unique to wireless communications.

Securing Emerging Wireless Systems will serve as a valuable reference to engineers in the field of wireless systems and security.
