Experimental Investigation of MIMO Reciprocal Channel Key Generation

Free registration required

Executive Summary

There is growing interest in physical-layer key generation schemes that provide very strong or even perfect security in wireless communication systems. One such scheme is reciprocal channel key generation, where two nodes quantize reciprocal channel state information to generate keys. Although the use of Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) techniques is interesting in this case since the number of random parameters available for rapid key generation is increased, MIMO techniques may also provide more information to an eavesdropper.
