We investigate the possibility of developing physical layer network coding (PNC) schemes with embedded strong secrecy based on standard QAM modulators. The proposed scheme employs a triple binning approach at the QAM front-end of the wireless PNC encoders. A constructive example of a strong secrecy encoder is presented when a BPSK and an 8-PAM modulator are employed at the wireless transmitters and generalized to arbitrary M-QAM modulators, assuming channel inversion is attainable at the first cycle of the transmission. Our preliminary investigations demonstrate the potential of using such techniques to increase the throughput while in parallel not compromise the confidentiality of the exchanged data.
