TWC SBE: Medium: Collaborative: Incentive Compatible Wireless Security

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

This proposal describes our research plan for providing secure cyberspace access via the wireless medium. Constructive
design insights and algorithms are targeted for provable and unbreakable security for wireless networks,
with the distinguishing goal of amalgamating theory of secure transmission of information with theory of economics.
Such an approach calls for a departure from the typical comfortable set up of information theory where
altruism is implicitly assumed, and the resulting interaction of network nodes is prudent in providing informationtheoretic
security. We instead argue for a holistic design that we term incentive-compatible wireless security that
carefully couples incentive-based mechanisms and social ties with that of information theoretic principles in order
to provide unbreakable and provably secure wireless cyber access.
