Frequency hopping against a powerful adversary

Frequency hopping is a central method in wireless communication, offering improved resistance to adversarial interference and interception attempts, and easy non-coordinated control in dynamic environments. In this paper, we introduce a new model that supports a rigorous study of frequency hopping in adversarial settings.We then propose new frequency hopping protocols that allow a sender-receiver pair to essentially use the full communication capacity, despite a powerful adversary that can scan and jam a significant amount of the ongoing transmissions.
