Information theoretic security

Mathematics Postgraduate Seminar

18th October 2019, 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm
Fry Building, 2.04

Information theory is the mathematical framework for communications systems. In this talk I will look at the seminal results of Shannon and Wyner who showed that it is possible to transmit with perfect secrecy regardless of computational power of an adversary and outline some of the interesting work that comes from this.
