Secure Hybrid Digital-Analog Coding with Side Information at the Receiver

In this paper, 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 available at the intended receiver 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 to minimize the distortion of source reconstruction at the intended receiver. In this paper, it is shown that the source-channel separation coding scheme is optimum in the sense of achieving minimum distortion. Two hybrid digital-analog Wyner-Ziv coding schemes are then proposed which achieve the minimum distortion.
