Data Security and Communication Networks

A computer network is a digital telecommunications network that allows the exchange of resources across nodes. These can be personal computers, servers, phones or networking hardware. The connections between these nodes are established over wireless media, optic cables or wires. The protection of digital data from unauthorized access and actions is called data security. Cyberattacks and data breaches can cause unwanted changes to data. Disk encryption, backups, data erasure, data masking, etc. are some of the technologies generally employed to ensure data security. Network security is an important consideration in data security. It is used on both private and public computer networks. This book explores all the important aspects of data security and communication networks in the present day scenario. It outlines the processes and applications of these fields in detail. This book, with its detailed analyses and data, will prove immensely beneficial to professionals and students involved in this area at various levels.

Physical Layer Security in Wireless Communications

Physical layer security has recently become an emerging technique to complement and significantly improve the communication security of wireless networks. Compared to cryptographic approaches, physical layer security is a fundamentally different paradigm where secrecy is achieved by exploiting the physical layer properties of the communication system, such as thermal noise, interference, and the time-varying nature of fading channels. Written by pioneering researchers, Physical Layer Security in Wireless Communications supplies a systematic overview of the basic concepts, recent advancements, and open issues in providing communication security at the physical layer. It introduces the key concepts, design issues, and solutions to physical layer security in single-user and multi-user communication systems, as well as large-scale wireless networks. The book starts with a brief introduction to physical layer security. The rest of the book is organized into four parts based on the different approaches used for the design and analysis of physical layer security techniques: Information Theoretic Approaches: introduces capacity-achieving methods and coding schemes for secure communication, as well as secret key generation and agreement over wireless channels Signal Processing Approaches: covers recent progress in applying signal processing techniques to design physical layer security enhancements Game Theoretic Approaches: discusses the applications of game theory to analyze and design wireless networks with physical layer security considerations Graph Theoretic Approaches: presents the use of tools from graph theory and stochastic geometry to analyze and design large-scale wireless networks with physical layer security constraints Presenting high-level discussions along with specific examples, illustrations, and references to conference and journal articles, this is an ideal reference for postgraduate students, researchers, and engineers that need to obtain a macro-level understanding of physical layer security and its role in future wireless communication systems.

Wireless Powered Communication Networks

This textbook introduces Wireless Powered Communication Networks (WPCNs) as a promising paradigm to overcome the energy bottleneck suffered by traditional wireless communication networks, as well as emerging Internet-of-Things networks. It selectively spans a coherent spectrum of fundamental aspects in WPCNs, such as wireless energy transfer (WEH) techniques, radio frequency (RF) energy harvesting receiver model, simultaneous wireless information and power transfer (SWIPT), as well as the rate-energy tradeoff arising from the joint transmission of information and energy using the same waveform. It covers network models for WPCNs, including the baseline and dual-hop WPCN models and a variety of related extensions. This book further examines the key factors including throughput, fairness, and security that must be taken into account for impeccable operation of WPCNs. The new IoT applications are targeted as a key element in those factors. It will also include exercises and examples throughout the book, as well as their PLS solutions. This is the first textbook examining the current research to provide a unified view of wireless power transfer (WPT) and information transmission in WPCNs from a physical layer security (PLS) perspective. Focused on designing efficient secure transmission schemes, analyzing energy evolvement process, and evaluating secrecy outage performance under different channel state information (CSI), the results presented in this book shed light on how to best balance security and throughput with prudent use of harvested energy in WCNs. It also provides an overview of the WPCNs by introducing the background of WPT, followed by a summary of the research conducted in the field. The authors describe the physical-layer security (PLS) problem in WPCNs, including the causes and the impacts of the problem on the performance of WPCNs. The authors extend the discussions by introducing the applications of WPCNs in the IoT. From the Internet of Things (IoT) point of view, this textbook reviews the opportunities and challenges for the lately-emerged WPCN to seamlessly integrate into the IoT ecosystem. It specifically addresses the maximization problem of uplink and downlink sum-throughout in a dual-hop WPCN, while taking fairness among WPCN users as a constraint. The results provided in this book reveal valuable insights into improving the design and deployment of future WPCNs in the upcoming IoT environment. This textbook targets advanced-level students studying wireless communications and research engineers working in this field. Industry engineers in mobile device and network development business with an interest in WPCNs and IoT, as well as their PLS solutions, will also find this book useful.

Secure Broadcast Communication

Secure Broadcast Communication in Wired and Wireless Networks presents a set of fundamental protocols for building secure information distribution systems. Applications include wireless broadcast, IP multicast, sensor networks and webs, ad hoc networks, and satellite broadcast. This book presents and compares new techniques for basic operations including: *key distribution for access control, *source authentication of transmissions, and *non-repudiation of streams. This book discusses how to realize these operations both with high performance processors and resource constrained processors. It shows how to protect against adversaries who inject packets or eavesdrop. The focus is on functional descriptions rather than theoretical discussions. Protocols are presented as basic building blocks that can be combined with each other and traditional security protocols. The book illustrates these protocols in practice by presenting a real implementation that provides security for an ad hoc sensor network. This book can serve as a textbook or supplementary reading in graduate level courses on security or networking, or can be used for self study.
