With the emergence of URLLC and mMTC, corresponding low complexity and low latency security mechanisms are needed. Promising lightweight mechanisms include physical unclonable functions (PUF), secret key generation (SKG) at the physical layer and localization based authentication, as considered in this talk. We will demonstrate how physical layer security (PLS) allows building a new breed of low latency security schemes, such as zero-round-trip-time (0-RTT) resumption authentication protocols combining PUF and SKG processes. Furthermore, hybrid PLS and crypto schemes, such as authenticated encryption (AE) using SKG, will be introduced. We will conclude this talk with a discussion on future directions in 6G security.
