The concept is that the RF as roughly described in
whatever paper cannot be jammed or DOS'd... your RF
would appear as noise to all but those holding the RF
spectrum noise key, so the only way to jam it, if you
even knew it was in use in the first place (say by noting
an overall spectrum power bump) would be to raise the
noise floor by emitting... you guessed it, random noise...
which would wipe out the S/N dB's you need for your
own comms be they traditional AM / FM / etc, or this
keyed noise tech. So you'd end up in a mutually
assured destruction, essentially who can throw
more power in the air. You'd probably be able to get
more local power up, hop by hop, than a wide area
adversary tying to blanket you, so you'd win.

You need the RF noise key to cipher the RF,
so the underlying data packets are always
secure and unaffected by the above. Data would
be affected by nodes that are involved in the
data layer, before it gets pushed up to or down
from RF. That's a trusted evil maid problem and
thus out of scope.
