Distributed Detection With Censoring Sensors Under Physical Layer Secrecy

Executive Summary

The authors consider distributed binary detection problems in which the remote sensors of a network implement a censoring strategy to fulfill energy constraints, and the network works under the attack of an eavesdropper. The attacker wants to discover the state of the nature scrutinized by the system, but the network implements appropriate countermeasures to make this task hopeless. The goal is to achieve perfect secrecy at the physical layer, making the data available at the eavesdropper useless for its detection task. Adopting as performance metric certain Ali-Silvey distances, they characterize the detection performance of the system under physical layer secrecy.
