On The Secrecy of the Cognitive Interference Channel with Channel State



In this paper the secrecy problem in the cognitive state-dependent interference channel is considered. In this scenario we have a primary and a cognitive transmitter-receiver pairs. The cognitive transmitter has the message of the primary sender as side information. In addition, the state of the channel is known at the cognitive encoder. Hence, the cognitive encoder uses this side information to cooperate with the primary transmitter. The message of the cognitive encoder must be secret at the primary receiver, i.e., the primary receiver act as an eavesdropper for the cognitive transmitter. An achievable rate region and an outer bound on the rate region in this channel are derived. The results are extended to the previous works as special cases.
