Aylin Yener Professor, Pennsylvania State University

Abstract: These lectures will provide the basics of information theoretic secrecy framework starting with the classical wiretap channel model, addressing its multi-terminal extensions and associated tools and insights. These include multi-transmitter models and cooperative jamming, untrusted relay models, multi-antenna models and structured signaling. We will conclude with newly emerging models and tools, state of the art in information theoretic security, open problems and forward look.Speaker Biography: Aylin Yener is a professor of Electrical Engineering at The Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA since 2010, where she joined the faculty as an assistant professor in 2002. During the academic year 2008-2009, she was a Visiting Associate Professor with the Department of Electrical Engineering, Stanford University, CA. Her research interests are in information theory, commu-nication theory and network science with recent emphasis on green communica-tions, information security and networked systems. She received the NSF CAREER award in 2003, the best paper award in Communication Theory in the IEEE Interna-tional Conference on Communications in 2010, the Penn State Engineering Alumni Society (PSEAS) Outstanding Research Award in 2010, the IEEE Marconi Prize pa-per award in 2014, the PSEAS Premier Research Award in 2014, and the Leonard A.
