Keynote: Primitives for Physical Trust

  • Anish Arora
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 5340)


This talk explores the question of whether wireless communication can achieve security - confidentiality (unicast and broadcast), authentication, non-repudiation, anonymity - without assuming any shared secrets and using only low-cost computation primitives. The key idea is to exploit physical characteristics of the network medium to develop a basis of physical primitives that suffice for rethinking a security protocol suite.
