Secure Joint Source-Channel Coding with Side Information
Source: University of Toledo
The problem of transmitting an i.i.d Gaussian source over an i.i.d Gaussian wiretap channel with an i.i.d Gaussian side information is considered. The intended receiver is assumed to have a certain minimum SNR and the eavesdropper is assumed to have a strictly lower SNR compared to the intended receiver. The objective is minimizing the distortion of source reconstruction at the intended receiver. It is shown, in this paper, that unlike the Gaussian wiretap channel without side information, Shannon's source-channel separation coding scheme is not optimum in the sense of achieving the minimum distortion. Three hybrid digital-analog secure joint source channel coding schemes are then proposed which achieve the minimum distortion.
