The purpose of this research is the investigation and understanding of a security technique in wireless communications based on physical attributes of the channel. We consider a scenario where a communication channel is set up between two antennas, where a protection from eavesdroppers is required. The basis for this protection will be the channel estimate which should be identical to both our recipients, leading to the possibility of generating reconciliation keys. We will conduct experiments and gather measurements in order to exploit the opportunities of this technique.
