Description of the thesis topic

The PhD candidate should work in the field of Information Theory, specifically its application in physical-layer security. Physical-layer security exploits the physical properties of the communication channel to enhance communication security through appropriate coding and signal processing. Of particular to the present PhD project is the problem of "covert communication," where the sender tries to hide its communication behavior (rather than the content of communication) by, e.g., transmitting at sufficiently low power. An information-theoretic framework for covert communication was recently developed by the advisor and other researchers.

Work Context

The PhD candidate is expected to attack several important problems in covert communication and related problems. These may include (not necessarily all of) the following: analyze covert communication over channels that are not encompassed by the previously studied mathematical model; design computationally efficient error-correcting codes for covert communication; and develop a theoretical framework for location privacy.

The thesis will be carried out at ETIS laboratory, UMR 8051, in Cergy-Pontoise. ETIS has four research teams, of which the present research project is associated with team ICI (Information, Communication, and Imaging).
