Abstract: The THz spectrum, ranging from 95 GHz to 10 THz, can enable multiple benefits and applications for wireless communications, passive, spectroscopy, and imaging system. Although there are multiple technical and economic challenges associated with THz deployment, the rarely discussed challenge of security and privacy-related risks needs attention from researchers, manufacturers, and even policymakers. THz spectrum could represent either a boon or a bane (or both) for security, privacy, and even national security. These include concerns over an array of increased risks, such as failure of devices, failure of the system, unauthorized or covert access, compromise of data, data integrity, impact on other services (apps), impact on critical infrastructure, securing dense deployment, and exposure of sensitive information. In this paper, we describe how the use of the THz spectrum could both introduce and negate security and privacy risks. We then present a set of technical and policy measures to mitigate such risks. We note that standards bodies and possibly government interventions will have a role in mitigating security, privacy and even national security risks.
