Secure Network-Coded Wireless Multicast for Delay-Sensitive Data
Wireless multicast for delay-sensitive data is challenging because different receivers may experience different packet losses. Network coding offers significant advantages over the traditional Automatic Repeat-reQuest (ARQ) protocols in that it mitigates the need for retransmission and has the potential to approach the min-cut capacity. Network-coded multicast would be, however, vulnerable to false packet injection attacks, in which the adversary injects bogus packets to prevent receivers from correctly decoding the original data. Without a right defense in place, even a single bogus packet can completely change the decoding outcome. Existing solutions either incur high computation cost or cannot with-stand high packet loss.
