Security in Distributed Mobile-User Radio Networks

  • Anthony Ephremides
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 279)


I wish to thank Professor Giuseppe Longo for giving me the opportunity to present the material that follows in the 1982 CISM Summer School on Secure Digital Communications. My emphasis is placed on issues most pertinent to Packet-Radio Communications and especially to mobile multi-user environments that are controlled in a distributed (non-central) fashion. Much of the material in these lectures is new and unpublished, and represents recent work by myself and my colleagues.
