Abstract

In this paper a new physical layer security method is proposed against eavesdropping attacks. Our purpose is to demonstrate that performance of the legitimate receiver can be increased and performance of the eavesdropper can be decreased by matching between the roll of factors of root raised cosine filters in the transmitter and receiver. Through the matching between the roll of factors (alpha), a performance difference is generated between the legitimate receiver and the eavesdropper. By using three software defined radio nodes error vector magnitude of the legitimate receiver and the eavesdropper is measured according to roll of factors. Performance differences the receiver are demonstrated when the roll off factor is matched and mismatched.
