EG-LDPC Codes for the Erasure Wiretap Channel

Free registration required

Executive Summary

The wiretap channel model, proposed by Wyner, has been studied by various authors from the perspectives of security, reliability and cryptographic protocols. A basic theme of these discussions has been information theoretically secure communication whose degree of secrecy can be theoretically proved. This paper explains a practical implementation of Euclidean Geometry (EG) - Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) codes for wiretap channels of type I and II. The focus has been on efficient encoding and decoding by taking advantage of the cyclic nature of EG codes.
