A Physical Layer Security Scheme with Compressed Sensing in OFDM-based IoT Systems
MetadataShow full item record
The Internet of Things (IoT) features pervasive sensing and control capabilities by deploying a massive machinetype communication (MTC) devices. However, low hardware complexity, low processing capacity and constrained energy of MTC devices raise lots of challenges to communication and security. Therefore, physical layer security (PLS) appears to be a promising method for securing wireless communication in which orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) is widely used. However, most existing OFDM-based PLS schemes possess little dynamicity for their secret keys derived from pre-extracted information. The combination of OFDM and compressed sensing (CS) is a remarkable approach to address the weakness. So, with compressed sensing, we propose a physical layer security scheme for OFDM-based IoT systems, named PLSSCS. It can address the demerit of key extraction by channel measuring instead of preextracted information. To evaluate the performance of PLSSCS, the simulation is carried out in MATLAB, and PLSSCS provides better performance with dynamic property.
