We construct a universal secure network coding. Our construction just modifies the transmission scheme at the source node and works with every linear coding at an intermediate node. We relax the security criterion such that the mutual information between the message and the eavesdropped signal is sufficiently small instead of strictly zero. Our construction allows the set of eavesdropped links to change at each time slot.


Ryutaroh Matsumoto was born in Nagoya, Japan, on November 29, 1973. He received the B.E. degree in computer science, the M.E. degree in information processing, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical and electronic engineering, all from Tokyo Institute of  Technology, Japan, in 1996, 1998, 2001, respectively. He was an Assistant Professor from 2001 to 2004, and has been an Associate Professor since 2004 in the Department of  Communications and Integrated Systems of Tokyo Institute of Technology. His research interest includes error-correcting codes, quantum information theory, and communication theory. Dr. Matsumoto received the Young Engineer Award from IEICE and the Ericsson Young Scientist Award from Ericsson Japan in 2001. He received the Best Paper Awards from IEICE in 2001 and 2008.
