Improving Physical-Layer Security through Random Beamforming
Beamforming is a manner of using a MISO or MIMO system to increase signal power in a given direction. This works seeks to utilize this function along with probability theory to provide a proof of concept in the realm of physical-layer security. In essence, beamforming can be used to provide a set up where, for all but a minute selection of positions relative to Alice and Bob, Eve has a distinctly higher Packet Error Probability (PEP) than Bob, resulting in information theoretic security.
