  2. One of the difficulties of implementing and analyzing algorithms that achieve information theoretic limits is adapting asymptotic results to the finite block-length regime. Results on secrecy for both regimes utilize Shannon entropy and mutual information as metrics for security. In this paper, we determine that Shannon entropy does not necessarily have equal utility for wireless authentication in finite block-length regimes with a focus on the fingerprint embedding framework. Then, we apply a new security performance metric to the framework that is linked to min-entropy rather than Shannon entropy and is similar to cheating probability used in the literature. The metric is based upon an adversary's ability to correctly guess the secret key over many observations using maximum likelihood decoding. We demonstrate the effect that system parameters such as the length of the key and the identification tag have on an adversary's ability to attack successfully. We find that if given a large key, it is better to use it all at once, than to use some and then renew the key with the remaining bits after a certain number of transmissions.

  3. The rate regions of many variations of the standard and wire-tap channels have been thoroughly explored. Secrecy capacity characterizes the loss of rate required to ensure that the adversary gains no information about the transmissions. Authentication does not have a standard metric, despite being an important counterpart to secrecy. While some results have taken an information-theoretic approach to the problem of authentication coding, the full rate region and accompanying trade-offs have yet to be characterized. In this paper, we provide an inner bound of achievable rates with an average authentication and reliability constraint. The bound is established by combining and analyzing two existing authentication schemes for both noisy and noiseless channels. We find that our coding scheme improves upon existing schemes.
