Achievable Secrecy Rates for Wiretap OFDM With QAM Constellations

Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) systems have enjoyed widespread adoption as the physical layer standard for high data rate wired and wireless networks, due to their ability to efficiently cope with slowly varying dispersive channels. Therefore in searching for feasible implementations of physical layer security techniques, it is appropriate to analyze how existing information theoretic results can be applied to the OFDM structure This paper considers the information theoretic secrecy rates that are achievable in a wiretap OFDM channel when transmitting Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) constellation symbols.
