We consider the problem of private information retrieval (PIR) over a distributed storage system. The storage system consists of N non-colluding databases, each storing a coded version of M messages. In the PIR problem, the user wishes to retrieve one of the available messages without revealing the message identity to any individual database. We derive the(More)
We consider the multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wiretap channel under a minimum receiver-side power constraint in addition to the usual maximum transmitter-side power constraint. This problem is motivated by energy harvesting communications with wireless energy transfer, where an added goal is to deliver a minimum amount of energy to a receiver in(More)
We consider the problem of multi-message private information retrieval (MPIR) from N non-communicating replicated databases. In MPIR, the user is interested in retrieving P messages out of M stored messages without leaking the identity of the retrieved messages. The information-theoretic sum capacity of MPIR C P s is the maximum number of desired message(More)

We consider the multiple access wiretap channel (MAC-WTC), where multiple legitimate users wish to have secure communication with a legitimate receiver in the presence of an eavesdropper. The exact secure degrees of freedom (s.d.o.f.) region of this channel is known. Achieving this region requires users to follow a certain protocol altruistically and(More)
We investigate the secure degrees of freedom (s.d.o.f.) of two new channel models: broadcast channel with combating helpers and interference channel with selfish users. In the first model, over a classical broadcast channel with confidential messages (BCCM), there are two helpers, each associated with one of the receivers. In the second model, over a(More)
We consider a channel with N parallel sub-bands. There is a single user that can access exactly k channels, while maintaining some minimum rate at each accessed channel. The transmission takes place in the presence of a jammer which can access at most m channels. We cast the problem as an extensive-form game and derive the optimal power allocation(More)
