Although conventional cryptographic security mechanisms are essential to the overall problem of securing wireless networks, these techniques do not directly leverage the unique properties of the wireless domain to address security threats. In short, traditional approaches leave out the wireless aspect of the wireless network they aim to protect. The properties of the wireless medium are a powerful source of domain-specific information that has been proposed to complement and enhance traditional security mechanisms. The RAPOR effort is focused on taking the concepts of physical layer security beyond its current state of theoretical and academic research, and making it realistic and suitable for deployment in real-world wireless systems.
