In this chapter, we first explain that as an active attack, hostile jamming has become a serious threat to both military and civilian communications. We then introduce various jamming models, analyze the jamming resistance of general communication systems under jamming, and investigate the limitations with existing anti-jamming techniques. Third, we introduce the arbitrarily varying channel model and explain how to evaluate the channel capacity under hostile jamming using the arbitrarily varying channel model. Finally, we present the approach we take in anti-jamming system design: to incorporate the time-frequency-space diversity and advanced cryptographic techniques into the physical layer transceiver design and spectrum assignment control, so as to achieve jamming resistance through the synthesis of secure randomness and diversity. We end the chapter with an overview to the major contents covered in this book.
