Security guaranteed wireless communication under spatial and local Gaussian noise assumptions

Speaker: Masahito Hayashi

Time: Sep 14, 10:30am – 11:30am

Location: Room 410, Teaching Building


We consider wireless communication between Alice and Bob with additive Gaussian noise when the intermediate space between Alice and Bob is controlled by Eve. That is, Eve is allowed to inject artificial noise to Bob's detection. In this situation, using backward reconciliation, we propose a protocol to generate secure keys between Alice and Bob under the assumption that Eve's detector has a Gaussian noise and Eve is out of Alice's neighborhood.

Also, we give a necessarily and sufficient condition to generate the agreed secure keys via our protocol. In our protocol, leaked information is rigorously and quantitatively guaranteed even with finite block-length code. We also consider how Bob can improve their key generation rate by inserting artificial noise to Eve's observation. The preliminary version of this talk is available from
