Third IEEE GLOBECOM Workshop on Trusted Communications with Physical Layer Security (TCPLS2015)
IEEE GLOBECOM 2015, 6-10 December 2015, San Diego, California, USA.
Due to the broadcast nature of the wireless channels, security and privacy is of utmost concern for future wireless technologies. However, securely transferring confidential information over a wireless network in the presence of eavesdroppers that may intercept the information exchange between legitimate terminals, still remains a challenging task. Although security was originally viewed as a high-layer problem to be solved using cryptographic methods, physical layer (PHY) security is now emerging as a promising new (additional) means of defence to realize wireless secrecy in communications. In wireless PHY security, the breakthrough idea is to exploit the characteristics of wireless channels such as fading or noise to transmit a message from the source to the intended receiver while trying to keep this message confidential from both passive and active eavesdroppers. Over the past few years, PHY security has been widely recognized as a key enabling technique for secure wireless communications in future networks.
This workshop aims to bring together practitioners and researchers from both academia and industry for discussion and technical presentations on fundamental and practically relevant questions related to the many challenges arising from secure PHY communications. In line with such objectives, original contributions are solicited in topics of interest to include, but not limited to, the following:
· Secure methodologies and architectures for mobile and wireless networks
· Secure signal processing
· Secure fundamental theory
· Secure advanced spatial diversity techniques (secure cooperative communications, secure two-way cooperative communications, secure MIMO communications and secure cognitive radio systems)
· Secure resource allocation (secure optimization, secure cross-layer optimization and game theory techniques)
· Multi-user information theoretical security (coordinated design and distributed design)
· Cross-layer designs for security
· Security and privacy in the Internet of Things
· Security and quantum communications
· Trust, security and privacy in e-government, e-systems & social networking
· Trust, security and privacy in cloud computing
· Performance of practical testbeds for PHY security
