Abstract

This paper presents a study on physical layer authentication problem for in vivo nano networks at terahertz (THz) frequencies. A system model based on envisioned nano network for in vivo body-centric nano communication is considered and distance-dependent pathloss based authentication is performed. Experimental data collected from THz time-domain spectroscopy setup shows that pathloss can indeed be used as a device fingerprint. Furthermore, simulation results clearly show that given a maximum tolerable false alarm rate, detection rate up to any desired level can be achieved within the feasible region of the proposed method. It is anticipated that this paper will pave a new paradigm for secured, authenticated nano network for future applications, e.g., drug delivery and Internet of nano-Things-based intelligent office.
