This Special Session aims to provide a view of recent research on physical layer security and integrity techniques for communications. Security and integrity of transmissions are a major concern for futuretechnologies. It is organized by R. Gautier.
Up to now, information security is generally assigned to the cryptographic layer, thus involvinga high computational cost, and as such, a relatively high power consumption. Furthermore, the emergence ofnew wireless technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT), 5G-Tactile Internet, massive MIMO, cognitiveradio, smart satellite systems, etc, makes current encryption-based methods unsuitable. Physical layersecurity can be considered as an effective solution for these issues. The basic idea of this securitymechanism is to exploit the characteristics of the transmission channel and its impairments to design efficientsecure transmission strategies, so that the information from the source to the intended receiver remainsconfidential. In this special session, all interesting security techniques are targeted: new channel codes andmodulations schemes that ensure both reliability and confidentiality; cooperative, semi-blind and blindchannel adaptation algorithms; schemes based on adding interfering artificial signals (noise/jamming) to thetransmitted information signals, etc.
Active Researchers in physical layer security and integrity for IoT and space communications are highlyencouraged to submit their recent original works and results to this session. The covered topics include, butare not limited to, the following items:
