In various embodiments, the present invention presents a physical layer (PHY) authentication technique for implantable medical devices (IMDs) that does not use existing methods of cryptology. Instead, a friendly jamming mechanism is established and malicious attempts by adversaries are prevented, without sharing any secured information, such as secret keys. In addition to ensuring authentication, the invention also provides advantages in terms of decreasing processing complexity of IMDs and enhances overall communications performance.
