Security Vulnerabilities of Network Coding

It is already around ten years since the network coding paradigm has been introduced as a new communication approach with the aim of improving the performance of network protocols by breaking the rule of traditional store and forward approach and allowing intermediate nodes to encode received packets before forwarding them out. As of today, the concept is still immature and demands more extensive research in many areas with security being one of the most important and critical aspects due to the specific characteristics of network coding such as packet mixing and increased redundancy.
