Associate Professor Min Wu (ECE/UMIACS) is the principal investigator for a new National Science Foundation grant. This 3-year, $300k effort focuses on "Addressing Physical-Layer Challenges via CLAWS: Cross-Layer Approaches to Wireless Secure Communications."

Advances in wireless communications, networking technologies, mobile computing, and software engineering have led to numerous emerging applications with complex security requirements. Physical-layer properties in communications present not only new performance enhancing opportunities but also new risks and attacks that cannot be sufficiently addressed by cryptography-based security tools alone. The CLAWS effort will investigate the role of physical-layer properties and systematic engineering modeling in designing secure communications systems, and jointly optimize overall system performance and security to provide secure communications for current and future generation networks.
