Physical Layer Security for Massive MIMO: An Overview on Passive Eavesdropping and Active Attacks

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

This article discusses opportunities and challenges of physical layer security integration in MaMIMO systems. Specifically, we first show that MaMIMO itself is robust against passive eavesdropping attacks. We then review a pilot contamination scheme that actively attacks the channel estimation process. This pilot contamination attack not only dramatically reduces the achievable secrecy capacity but is also difficult to detect. We proceed by reviewing some methods from literature that detect active attacks on MaMIMO. The last part of the article surveys the open research problems that we believe are the most important to address in the future and give a few promising directions of research to solve them.
