Lecture by Gerhard Kramer, Technical University of Munich

Title: Review of Communication Theory of Selected Secrecy Systems

Secrecy systems often require a key that is shared only by legitimate parties. The process of generating this key is called secret key agreement, or secret sharing. We review communication theory of this topic, including a review of information theory for the one-time pad (Shannon, 1949), wiretap channels (Wyner, 1975; Csiszár & Körner, 1978), and secret key agreement by public discussion (Mauer, 1993; Ahlswede & Csiszár, 1993). Time permitting, we also review recent results on advantage distillation protocols (Gohari, Günlü & Kramer, 2018) and code constructions for physical unclonable functions or PUFs (Günlü, İşcan, Sidorenko & Kramer, 2018).
