Dr. Jing Deng (Computer Science) received new funding from the National Science Foundation for the project “CIF:Small:Collaborative Research:Security in Dynamic Environments: Exploiting the Randomness and Diversity of Ad-Hoc Networks.” The abstract states, “We propose to investigate ways to combine the two concepts under a real-world framework, and thus exploit the benefits of both. Our research is a first step towards a physical-layer-aided cryptography paradigm, and has the potential to bring improvements to the current ciphers, by decreasing the complexity and physical-resource expenses associated with the secret-key-exchange overhead.”
