dc.description.abstract As we advance towards Smart Cities, autonomous vehicles and the avalanche of IoT devices proposed for the future, we need to give careful consideration to how easily compromised nodes/devices can impact network state. Current proposals for autonomous smart devices typically use cellular networks as the backhaul or final hop. These devices will leverage existing trust-based client-side channel metrics, such as channel quality indicator (CQI), when the base-station determines scheduling decisions. In this short paper, we investigate the scheduling impact of a malicious device when it changes its channel metrics, so as to improve its download rate or even to negate the download rate of others. We utilise real-time 4K ultra-high definition video delivery as an example of high throughput demand application and compare the delivery rates of multiple devices in an open-source 5G simulated NS-3 network. Our results illustrate that when a malicious client deceives the scheduler, the other clients in the network have a noticeable decrease in both viewable quality and underlying delivery rate (25% decrease in the average video quality across the non malicious clients). en
