The purpose of this research is to primarily focus on investigating channel reciprocity in power lines. Initially, we will conduct experiments to determine the properties of the power line channel from both the transmitter side and the receiver side followed by analysis and comparison. The randomness of FEXT coupling functions and also (with some means) the transfer function serve as basis for key generation and for that we need to show that the power line channel is almost reciprocal. Next, we will investigate key generation from the measurements attained from the experiments.This study falls under the umbrella of physical layer key generation for wireline transmission.
