Project description
This project intends to contribute, from the theoretical perspective, to the research in machine-type communications (MTC) networks by focusing on the security aspects joint with the characteristics and requirements of the different MTC applications, from the physical layer perspective. Particularly, we aim to propose novel and effective solutions regarding physical layer security techniques, for safeguarding MTC networks aided by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), which are used as aerial base stations or aerial relays/jammers, by considering the challenges associated with MTC scenarios. This project also intends to propose novel strategies and benchmarks for the performance evaluation of secure MTC systems that will serve for future research in this topic.
