  • Publication number: 20240205704
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A user equipment (UE) may monitor a set of resources for one or more synchronization signal blocks (SSBs) associated with one or more pseudo-random sequences. The one or more pseudo-random sequences and the set of resources may be indicated by an output of a pseudo-random function (PRF) that is based on a timing parameter, a cell identifier, and a key. In some examples, the UE may monitor a set of resources within a control resource set for a downlink control channel, where the set of resources for the downlink control channel is based on an output of the PRF. The UE communicate with a network entity via a cell associated with the cell identifier based on the monitoring.

  • Publication number: 20240146477
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A user equipment (UE) and a network entity may pseudo-randomly generate frequency hopping indexes to support secure communication of sounding reference signals (SRSs). For example, the UE may securely obtain a key associated with communication a set of SRSs via respective portions of system bandwidth for communicating with the network entity. The UE and the network entity may generate a set of frequency hopping indexes using the key. The set of frequency hopping indexes may correspond to the set of SRSs, and each frequency hopping index may indicate a respective portion of the system bandwidth for communication of a corresponding SRS. The UE and the network entity may communicate the set of SRSs in accordance with the set of frequency hopping indexes.
