Title: On The Security Performance of Physical-Layer Network Coding
Published: January 05, 2009
Abstract: Physical-layer network coding (PLNC) is a novel wireless communication technology, in which multiple transmitters can send signals on the same channel to the same receiver at the same time. Our previous studies have revealed that PLNC can substantially improve the throughput performance of the whole network. In this paper, we address the security performance of PLNC. In particular, we investigate the symbol error performance of a potential eavesdropper in the PLNC system. Extensive simulation studies show that PLNC can provide security means against passive eavesdroppers.
