We consider the problem of multicasting information from a source to a set of receivers over a network where intermediate network nodes perform randomized network coding operations on the source packets. We propose a channel model for the non-coherent network coding introduced by Koetter and Kschischang in [6], that captures the essence of such a network(More)
— In networks that employ network coding, two main approaches have been proposed in the literature to allow the receivers to recover the source information: (i) use of coding vectors, that keep track of the linear combinations the received packets contain, and (ii) subspace coding, that dispenses of the need to know the linear combinations, since(More)
— We examine the problem of multiple sources transmitting information to one or more receivers that require the information from all the sources, over a network where the network nodes perform randomized network coding. We consider the noncoherent case, where neither the sources nor the receivers have any knowledge of the intermediate nodes operations. We(More)
We consider the problem where a group of n nodes, connected to the same broadcast channel (e.g., a wireless network), want to generate a common secret bitstream, in the presence of an adversary Eve, who tries to obtain information on the bitstream. We assume that the nodes initially share a (small) piece of information, but do not have access to any(More)
In this talk, we consider a group of m trusted and authenticated nodes that aim to create a shared secret key K over a wireless channel in the presence of an eavesdropper Eve. We assume that there exists a state dependent wireless broadcast channel from one of the honest nodes to the rest of them including Eve. All of the trusted nodes can also discuss over(More)
In a significant class of sensor-network applications, the identities of the reporting sensors are an essential part of the reported information. For instance, in environmental monitoring , the goal is to reconstruct physical quantities over space and time; these quantities are sampled by the sensors , and the source identity associated with each(More)
—Systems that employ network coding for content distribution convey to the receivers linear combinations of the source packets. If we assume randomized network coding, during this process the network nodes collect random subspaces of the space spanned by the source packets. We establish several fundamental properties of the random subspaces induced in such(More)
—In [1], [2] it is shown that the minimum broadcast rate of a linear index code over a finite field Fq is equal to an algebraic invariant of the underlying digraph, called minrankq. In [3], it is proved that for F2 and any positive integer k, minrankq(G) ≤ k if and only if there exists a homomorphism from the complement of the graph G to the complement of a(More)
