We design codes to transmit information over a network, some subset of which is controlled by a malicious adversary. The computationally unbounded, hidden adversary knows the message to be transmitted, and can observe and change information over the part of the network being controlled. The network nodes do not share resources such as shared randomness or a… (More)
Network coding can substantially improve network throughput and performance. However, these codes have a major drawback if the network contains hidden malicious nodes that can eavesdrop on transmissions and inject fake information. In this scenario, even a small amount of information injected by a single malicious hidden node could mix with and contaminate… (More)
In this paper, we study the multiple unicast network communication problem on undirected graphs. It has been conjectured by Li and Li [CISS 2004] that, for the problem at hand, the use of network coding does not allow any advantage over standard routing. Loosely speaking, we show that under certain (strong) connectivity requirements the advantage of network… (More)
NAND flash memories are the most widely used non-volatile memories, and data movement is common in flash storage systems. We study data movement solutions that minimize the number of block erasures, which are very important for the efficiency and longevity of flash memories. To move data among n blocks with the help of ¿ auxiliary blocks, where every block… (More)
In this paper we study the distribution of dynamic data over a broadcast channel to a large number of passive clients. The data is simultaneously distributed to clients in the form of discrete packets, each packet captures the most recent state of the information source. Clients obtain the information by accessing the channel and listening for the next… (More)
Traditional studies of multi-source, multi-terminal interference channels typically allow a vanishing probability of error in communication. Motivated by the study of network coding, this work addresses the task of quantifying the loss in rate when insisting on zero error communication in the context of interference channels.
We provide a novel achievability proof of the Slepian-Wolf theorem for i.i.d. sources over finite alphabets. We demonstrate that random codes that are linear over the real field achieve the classical Slepian-Wolf rate region. For finite alphabets we show that decoding is equivalent to solving an integer program. The techniques used may be of independent… (More)
