Physical-layer security has drawn ever-increasing attention in the next generation wireless communications. In this paper, we focus on studying the secure communication in an HPN-to-devices (HTD) network, in which a new type of MAC spoofing attack is considered. To detect the malicious attack, we propose a novel algorithm, namely, eigenvalue test using random matrix theory (ETRMT) algorithm, which needs no prior information about the channel. In particular, when the number of samples is finite at the receiver or the number of devices is large, the sampled signal is the biased estimation of the actual signal, which inspires us to use the random matrix theory to analyze the spoofing attack detection. The closed-form expressions of the detection probability, the false alarm probability, and the Neyman-Pearson threshold are derived based on eigenvalue distribution of the spiked population model. In addition, taking the channel time-varying into consideration, we provide an adaptive threshold tracking method by using Bayesian forecasting. Finally, the simulations are conducted to validate our proposed method and some insightful conclusions are obtained.
