Fundamental Limits of Low Probability of Detection/Intercept Communications: Core Results and Future Directions
Thu, 02/14/2019 - 12:30pm
Hiding transmitted signals is of paramount importance in many communication settings. While traditional security (e.g., encryption) prevents unauthorized access to message content, detection of the mere presence of a message by the adversary can have significant negative impact. This necessitates the use of low probability of detection/interception (LPD/LPI) communication, which not only protects the information contained in a transmission from unauthorized decoding, but also prevents the detection of a transmission in the first place. In this talk, I will present the fundamental classical and quantum limits of LPD/LPI communication, and overview future research directions.
