Foundations of Information-Theoretic Security (Grundlagen der informationstheoretischen Sicherheit), 10 LP
Schedule: WS, 4+2 SWS
Instructors: Gerhard Wunder, Richard Schöffauer, Benedikt Groß
The lecture series Information-theoretic Foundations of Security (Wintersemester) as well as Privacy and Identity (Sommersemester) provides a comprehensive treatment of the information-theoretic priciples of security and privacy engineering by exploiting (common) randomness vs. classical computational complexity. It is also an excellent guidance for solving statistical decision problems in data science and machine learning.
An intriguing application is "Physical Layer Security", i.e. implementation of security algorithms already on the physical layer of (wireless) communication systems exploiting physical properties such as noise, fading etc. for symmetric key generation and wiretap channel coding ("wiretap codes").
