On the performance of the DNPS-Based relay networks under masquerading attack

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In the relay networks, two typical issues of physical layer security are selfishness and garbling. As a matter of fact, a certain nontypical but severely harmful misbehavior can also remove the cooperative diversity gain. Here, we coin the masquerading attack to indicate this kind of misbehavior. A masquerade relay can always pretend to be the best one to forward signals and, in consequence, deprive the others of the opportunities to cooperate. To the best of our knowledge, the impact of the masquerading attack has not yet been fully investigated. In this paper, multiple masquerade relays with random masquerading behavior are taken into account. Also, the complete channel effects, including the effects of the flat Rayleigh fading, log-normal shadowing, and path loss, are considered such that the geographical effects of the network topology can be completely captured. At last, the impact of the masquerade relays are evaluated in terms of the outage probability and end-to-end capacity.
