Wireless physical layer security approaches can prevent eavesdropping without upper layer data encryption. However, such techniques are hampered by time-varying wireless channel conditions and they are typically feasible only when the legitimate partners in the Wyner’s wire-tap channel model have an advantage over the source-eavesdropper channels. Node cooperation is an effective strategy to overcome this challenge and enhance the performance of secure wireless communications. This chapter addresses secure ...
