"Polymorphic Wireless Receivers," by Francesco Restuccia and Tommaso Melodia, tackles the problem of physical layer resilience in wireless systems from a completely new perspective.
"Measuring Security Practices," by Louis F. DeKoven et al., provide a unique perspective into how users choose to implement common security advice in practice.
This paper seeks to make progress on the prevalence of popular security practices and their relationship to security outcomes via the longitudinal empirical measurement of a large population of computer devices.
We introduce PolymoRF, a deep learning-based polymorphic receiver able to reconfigure itself in real time based on the inferred waveform parameters.
