Contributions to Information Theoretic Multiterminal Secret Key Agreement [article]

Alireza Poostindouz, University Of Calgary, Reyhaneh Safavi-Naeini
2022
A multiterminal secret key agreement (SKA) protocol is used to establish a shared se- cret key among a group of terminals. We study SKA protocols with information-theoretic security.  ...  The key rate of an SKA protocol is given by the key length divided by the terminals' variables length, and the maximum possible key rate calculated for an SKA model is called the wiretap secret key (WSK  ...  Acknowledgements The studies and research results presented in this thesis were performed under the supervision of Dr. Rei Safavi-Naini. I cannot thank her enough for her support and guidance.  ...

Key Agreement with Physical Unclonable Functions and Biometric Identifiers [article]

Onur Günlü
2021 IACR Cryptology ePrint Archive  
The optimal trade-offs between the secret-key, privacy-leakage, and storage rates for multiple measurements of hidden PUFs are characterized.  ...  A low-complexity transform-coding algorithm is developed to make the information-theoretic analysis tractable and motivate a noisy (hidden) PUF source model.  ...  In Chapter 4, information-theoretic rate regions are derived for a generalization of a classic two-terminal source model key agreement problem.  ...

Yinian Mao, Yan Sun, Min Wu, K.J. Ray Liu
2004 IEEE INFOCOM 2004  
We also show that the asymptotic average time cost per user join and leave event is Θ(log (log n)), where n is the group size.  ...  In this paper, we propose a time-efficient contributory key agreement framework for secure communications in dynamic groups.  ...  The communication and computation overhead associated with key update is related to the group size n.  ...

2019 Physical Review X  
We establish a lower bound on the asymptotic secret key rate of continuous-variable quantum key distribution with a discrete modulation of coherent states.  ...  This result opens the way to establishing the full security of continuous-variable protocols with a discrete modulation, and thereby to the large-scale deployment of these protocols for quantum key distribution  ...  rate (i.e., the ratio between the final key size and the number of states exchanged on the quantum channel) is higher than for qubit-based protocols [9] .  ...

Dongyun Bai, Peng Huang, Hongxin Ma, Tao Wang, Guihua Zeng

In Section 4, the secret-key rates are computed with the NLA and without the NLA in the plug-and-play DPMCS, and we make the analysis of the performance improvement.  ...  In Section 2, we first review the prepare-and-measure (P&M)-based and EB version of the plug-and-play DPMCS CVQKD protocol and the derivation of the expressions of its secret-key rate.  ...  can calculate the asymptotic lower bound of the secret-key rates in Equation (4) against collective attacks.  ...

2015 Physical Review X  
Our analysis of the secret key rate fully takes into account the inherent uncertainty associated with the quantum nature of the reference pulse(s) and quantifies the limit at which the theoretical key  ...  We present a proof-of-principle, fiber-based experimental demonstration of the protocol and quantify the expected secret key rates by expressing them in terms of experimental parameters.  ...  SECRET KEY RATE ANALYSIS While claims of secure key distribution should be based on empirically estimated correlations between Alice and Bob [15] , it is common to calculate an expected secret key rate  ...
