A New Metric for Measuring the Security of an Environment: The Secrecy Pressure

Mucchi, Lorenzo; Ronga, Luca; Huang, Kaibin; Chen, Yifan; Wang, Rui; Zhou, Xiangyun


Information-theoretical approaches can ensure security, regardless of the computational power of the attackers. Requirements for the application of this theory are: 1) assuring an advantage over the eavesdropper quality of reception and 2) knowing where the eavesdropper is. The traditional metrics are the secrecy capacity or outage, which are both related to the quality of the legitimate link against the eavesdropper link. Our goal is to define a new metric, which is the characteristic of the...[Show more]
