- In this paper, we have analyzed the sub-protocol stack of Long Term Evolution Advanced (LTE-A) System, and proposed a hybrid covert channel, called HyLTEsteg, designed for LTE-A System. The HyLTEsteg uses covert timing channels (CTC), which is fitted the legitimate data stream of network, as a trigger for covert storage channels (CSC). And the CSC utilizes the sequence number (SN) fields of Radio Link Control (RLC) layer and Packet Data Convergence Protocol (PDCP) layer to transmit hidden information. The performance of the HyLTEsteg's anti-detection and hidden information transmission are evaluated and analyzed.
