Abstract

The wiretap channel with secret keys models the problem of secure communication in the presence of a non-legitimate eavesdropper, where the transmitter and legitimate receiver share a secret key of finite rate. This communication scenario is studied for compound channels. An achievable strong secrecy rate is presented and a multi-letter upper bound is derived. For degraded compound wiretap channels with secret keys the strong secrecy capacity is established. Finally, the case of channel state information at the transmitter is discussed and the secrecy capacity is established for this case as well.
