Abstract

Jamming has long been a problem in wireless communications, but with recent advances in adaptive jamming, adaptive anti-jamming, and other advanced physical layer security techniques, it is hard to understand whether we can keep the jammer at bay. In this work, we consider this problem and introduce a game-theoretic framework which gives us a tool to analyze the complex adaptive jamming and anti-jamming space. To illustrate the strengths and weaknesses in intelligent jamming and anti-jamming techniques, we present a straightforward two-player instance and analyze a number of possible jamming and anti-jamming techniques.
