In this paper we investigate the problem of optimal cache placement in the presence of malicious mobile users in heterogeneous networks, where small-cell base stations are equipped with caches in order to reduce the overall backhaul load. In particular the malicious users aim at maximizing the congestion of files at the backhaul, i.e., at maximizing the average backhaul rate. For that adversarial model, we derive the achievable average backhaul rate of the heterogeneous network. Moreover, we…

MDS Coded Caching for Device-to-Device Content Sharing Against Eavesdropping
A delay-aware secure maximum distance separable (MDS) coded caching scheme to resist the eavesdropping attacks for device-to-device (D2D) content sharing by combining MDS coding with distributed caching is put forward.


Optimizing MDS Codes for Caching at the Edge
The results show that the careful placement of MDS-encoded content in caches at the wireless edge leads to a significant decrease of the load of the network backhaul and hence to a considerable performance enhancement of thenetwork.
On edge caching with secrecy constraints
This paper formally derive the necessary conditions for secrecy and the corresponding achievable backhaul rate using numerical simulations, and formulate the optimal caching schemes with secrecy constraints as a convex optimization problem.

This work establishes a coding scheme that not only conforms to the demands of all users but also delivers the contents securely and illustrates that for large number of files and users, the loss incurred due to the imposed secrecy constraints is insignificant.
Cache-enabled small cell networks: modeling and tradeoffs
This work considers a network model where small base stations have caching capabilities as a means to alleviate the backhaul load and satisfy users’ demand, and derives closed-form expressions for the outage probability and the average delivery rate as a function of the signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR), SBS density, target file bitrate, storage size, file length, and file popularity.
Fundamental Limits of Caching With Secure Delivery
The results show that security can be introduced at a negligible cost, particularly for large number of files and users, and it is shown that the rate achieved by the proposed caching scheme with secure delivery is within a constant multiplicative factor from the information-theoretic optimal rate.
On energy-efficient caching at the wireless edge
This paper derives the EE performance of an MDS-encoded caching scheme, and forms the optimal caching scheme as a convex optimization problem, and thoroughly study the performance of this optimal scheme for an important heterogeneous network scenario.
Living on the edge: The role of proactive caching in 5G wireless networks
This article explores one of the key enablers of beyond 4G wireless networks leveraging small cell network deployments, proactive caching, and proposes a mechanism whereby files are proactively cached during off-peak periods based on file popularity and correlations among user and file patterns.
Caching at the edge: A green perspective for 5G networks
This work focuses on the energy consumption aspects of cache-enabled wireless cellular networks, specifically in terms of area power consumption (APC) and energy efficiency (EE), and introduces a detailed power model that takes into account caching.
Fundamental limits of caching
This paper proposes a novel caching approach that can achieve a significantly larger reduction in peak rate compared to previously known caching schemes, and argues that the performance of the proposed scheme is within a constant factor from the information-theoretic optimum for all values of the problem parameters.
Cache in the air: exploiting content caching and delivery techniques for 5G systems
A novel edge caching scheme based on the concept of content-centric networking or information-centric networks is proposed and evaluated, using trace-driven simulations to evaluate the performance of the proposed scheme and validate the various advantages of the utilization of caching content in 5G mobile networks.
