Abstract

In this paper, we have investigated Covert Channels in 3GPP LTE-A (Long Term Evolution-Advanced) for identifying headers and extension fields where covert data can be hidden in covert communications. We also discuss the covert channel capacity for LTE-A where the specific fields in the headers of the MAC (Medium Access Control), RLC (Radio Link Control) and PDCP (Packet Data Convergence Protocol) layers are analyzed. We review different scenarios of channel coding rate, modulation schemes and channel bandwidths and present our results.
