We investigate the privacy amplification problem in which Eve can observe the uniform binary source through a binary erasure channel (BEC) or a binary symmetric channel (BSC). For this problem, we derive the so-called expurgation exponent of the information leaked to Eve. The exponent is derived by relating the leaked information to the error probability of… (More)
