Abstract

Orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems have enjoyed widespread adoption in high data rate wired and wireless networks, due to their ability to efficiently cope with slowly varying dispersive channels. This paper considers the information theoretic secrecy rates that are achievable by an OFDM transmitter/receiver pair in the presence of an eavesdropper that might either use an OFDM structure or choose a more complex receiver architecture. The analysis is performed through modeling of the OFDM system with an eavesdropper as a special case of a high dimensional multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wiretap channel, which allows the secrecy loss due to the OFDM structure constraints, and the information gain for an eavesdropper that uses a more complex receiver to be quantified. The results are expressed in terms of both ergodic rates and outage probabilities for multipath Rayleigh fading channels, and in terms of dependence on the signal to noise ratio (SNR) ratio between the main and eavesdropper channels.
