Coded caching for wiretap broadcast channels

Abstract : The paper studies the wiretap erasure broadcast channel (BC) with an external eavesdropper when the legitimate receivers have cache memories. Various secure coding schemes are proposed for a scenario where Kw weak receivers have same erasure probabilities and Ks strong receivers have same erasure probabilities. The coding schemes achieve the cache-aided secrecy capacity when only weak receivers have cache memories and this cache memory is either small or large. They also allow to conclude the following: 1) Under a total cache budget it is often beneficial to assign the cache memories unequally between strong and weak receivers. 2.) Joint cache-channel coding is necessary to attain the optimal performance. 3.) The secrecy capacity can be positive even when the eavesdropper is stronger than the legitimate receivers.
