IRES: Practical Physical-Layer Security in Coimbra, Portugal

Description

This project will increase the understanding of physical-layer security for communications in real-world sensor networks. Over the three-year project duration, the three yearly unifying topics of student projects will be network protocols for secrecy, intentional jamming techniques for secrecy, and novel error-correcting codes for secrecy in wireless networks. Students will implement projects on a software radio platform where appropriate. The disseminated results will aid system designers in adding a completely new layer of security at the physical-layer of modern networks.
