Code-based cryptography has been around for quite a while with the McEliece cryptosystem using the syndrome decoding problem in the Hamming metric considered one of the best understood cryptosystems with stable record of cryptanalytical advancement.  The best attacks are still message recovery attacks that use combinatorial methods against the underlying hard problem. 

In recent years, the quest for better performance has made the code-based scene much more colorful with abundance of new metrics, new hard problems and cryptographic constructions. As a result, the cryptanalytic methods are also more varied with algebraic methods becoming more relevant and more creative.

In this talk I will give an overview of algebraic attacks used in code-based cryptography. On a high level, such an attack involves modeling a hard problem or a cryptosystem as a  system of equations and then solving it. The challenge lies in finding the best possible algebraic model and the best possible solving method. I will go through several examples of algebraic modeling and solving of hard problems, decryption errors and cryptographic construction. I will further argue that often, a clever combination of algebraic and combinatorial methods yields the best results.

There is an urgent need for a more holistic approach to FL that includes key requirements for trustworthy AI from first principles. For a given computational and data budget, we need to understand the fundamental limits for fairness, privacy, robustness and explainability of FL systems.
This talk revolves around ongoing efforts to develop mathematical theory to study the fundamental limits of FL systems that are “trustworthy by design”.
The primary data structure for our theory of trustworthy FL is the empirical graph of decentralized data. Empirical graphs are undirected weighted graphs whose nodes represent the generators of local datasets, which might be social network users, weather stations or diseases. Each node of an empirical graph gives rise to a learning task: train a personalized model for its local dataset. Thus, an empirical graph is naturally associated with a multi-task learning problem, i.e., the simultaneous training of personalized models. By training a personalized model for each local dataset, FL methods enable the personalization of services. Similar to empirical risk minimization as a key principle for basic ML, an analogous optimization principle for FL is generalized total variation minimization (GTVMin). GTVMin is an instance of regularized empirical risk minimization that uses the variation of personalized model parameters as a regularizer. The solutions of GTVMin are trained personalized models for each node of the empirical graph. FL algorithms are obtained by applying distributed optimization methods to solve GTVMin.

The sixth generation (6G) of communication systems will be a key enabler of a plethora of new applications (e.g., autonomous driving, augmented reality, smart industry, etc.) that combine sensing, wireless communication, learning, and actuation, enabling the interaction among intelligent devices that collect and process considerable amounts of data. However, the stringent requirements imposed by the effectiveness of such applications need to face a bottleneck caused by resource scarcity, including spectrum, energy, computing, learning and inference capabilities. In this webinar, we present a fundamental paradigm shift for envisioned 6G systems given by the semantic and goal-oriented communications approach, which goes beyond the typical bit related metrics that are used today in system design and optimization, focusing instead on the recovery of the meaning conveyed by the transmitted bits and/or the effective fulfillment of the tasks motivating the exchange of information. We will present our recent results on the fundamental pillars of this system design, namely: (i) Goal-oriented data compression; (ii) Semantic representation learning and extraction via topological signal processing; (iii) Goal-oriented network resource optimization; (iv) Generative AI for semantic communications; and (v) RIS-enabled goal-oriented programmable wireless environments. The talk illustrates the practical advantages of this novel paradigm on several use-cases. Finally, we draw some conclusions and future research directions.

Decomposition of digital images into other basis or dictionaries than time or space domains is a very common and effective approach in image processing and analysis. Such a decomposition is commonly obtained using fixed transformations (e.g., Fourier or wavelet) or dictionaries learned from example databases or from the signal or image itself. In recent years, with the growth of computing power, data-driven strategies exploiting the redundancy within patches extracted from one or several images to increase sparsity have become more prominent. They have demonstrated very promising image restoration results. The question to pursue in this work is how to design such an adaptive transformation based on principles of quantum mechanics.
We investigate in detail a new approach of constructing such a signal or image-dependent bases inspired by quantum mechanics tools, i.e., by considering the signal or image as a potential in the discretized Schrodinger equation. To illustrate the potential of the proposed decomposition, denoising results are reported in the case of Gaussian, Poisson, and speckle noise and compared to the state-of-the-art algorithms. We further generalize our proposed adaptive basis by exploiting the data-driven strategy inspired by quantum many-body theory. Based on patch analysis, the similarity measures in a local image neighborhood are formalized through a term akin to interaction in quantum mechanics that can efficiently preserve the local structures of real images. The versatile nature of this adaptive basis extends the scope of its application to image-independent or image-dependent noise scenarios without any adjustment. Rigorous comparisons with contemporary methods demonstrate the superiority of the proposed algorithm regardless of the image characteristics, noise statistics, and intensity.
We show the ability of our approaches to deal with real-medical data such as clinical dental computed tomography image denoising and medical ultrasound image despeckling applications. Furthermore, we propose to enhance the spatial resolution of the 2D acoustic maps estimated from quantitative acoustic microscopy (QAM) imaging modality. QAM is an imaging system to form 2D quantitative maps of acoustic properties of soft tissues at a microscopic scale (<8 micrometers). Our custom-made QAM systems employ a 250-MHz or a 500-MHz single-element transducer to produce 2D maps with spatial resolutions of 7 or 4 micrometers, respectively. These state-of-the-art QAM systems remain inadequate for clinical investigations requiring even finer resolution, are costly to build, and require expert users. We propose a novel super-resolution algorithm by exploiting our off-the-shelf quantum-based adaptive denoiser (DeQuIP), leveraging the principles of quantum many-body theory. Adapting the recent breakthrough of regularization-by-denoising (RED) in image restoration, we impose this external DeQuIP denoiser as RED-prior combined with an analytical solution to handle the degradation operators for solving QAM super-resolution imaging. The efficiency of our proposed method is demonstrated by improving the resolution of experimental 2D acoustic impedance maps generated from the data acquired by 250-MHz and 500-MHz QAM systems. Results demonstrate that our RED algorithm permits the recovery of finer details and increases spatial resolution significantly. For example, a spatial resolution improvement of 40% was achieved when applied to acoustic impedance maps at 250-MHz, outperforming two other state-of-the-art methods, which only yielded 23-32% improvement.

Most imaging inverse problems can be formulated as the reconstruction of an unknown image from noisy and potentially incomplete measurements. The traditional approach to reconstruction then consists of defining a cost function combining a data fidelity term and a regularisation term to compensate for the uncertainties associated with the measurements. Very often though, the optimization of such a cost function only provides point estimates, i.e., single restored images without useful associated uncertainty measures. This makes the use of the restored images within subsequent decision-making processes challenging. The Bayesian formalism allows for principled uncertainty management and quantification, but exact inference methods rarely scale well when the dimension of the problems increase. Thus, variational inference (VI) stands as a competitive alternative for uncertainty quantification at scale.
In this talk, we will discuss the application of Expectation-Propagation (EP) and variants, as an alternative to the more popular Variational Bayes (VB) methods used for approximate inference. In the context of image restoration, we will consider restoration from data corrupted by Gaussian and non-Gaussian noise and discuss how its modularity makes it a good candidate for a variety of inverse problems and priors/regularisation. We will review some of the current limitations of EP-based methods and will conclude with exciting avenues combining EP within large inference schemes.

Brain MRI is becoming increasingly important in the study of both neurodevelopmental
and neurodegenerative processes due to its enormous capabilities in the study of brain anatomy
and function, with multiple applications in both research and clinical settings.
However, the inherently non-quantitative nature of most MRI sequences poses significant challenges
in the search for markers of pathology.
This webinar will provide an overview of the key factors involved in evaluating brain MRI
from a signal analysis perspective (e.g. signal registration, signal intensity normalisation,
signal denoising) and illustrate some examples from clinical and research fields.

Sound field reconstruction consists of estimating sound field properties from a set of spatio-temporal observations of an acoustic field. Such type of estimation is valuable in applications like spatial audio, active control of sound, VR/AR/XR, audio signal enhancement and transducer design – to name a few. There are however intrinsic challenges associated with measuring sound across space. Audible wavelengths span three orders of magnitude (17 m to 17 mm) and involve spatial sampling in three dimensions, resulting in a demanding problem. In this context, the talk focuses on the sensing, analysis, and reconstruction of sound fields over large spatial domains. We address the measurement of sound fields with microphone arrays, distributed sensors and remote acousto-optic sensing. We also discuss recent advances in signal processing and deep learning for sound field reconstruction, and demonstrate how models that capture generalizable physical properties of a sound field lead to better estimates than classical techniques that do not account for specific physical structure. As an outlook, we discuss how sound field analysis is approached in various domains of audio and acoustics and highlight some of the most promising avenues of current research in the field.

Graphs are fundamental mathematical structures that are widely used in various fields for network data analysis to model complex relationships within and between data, signals, and processes. In particular, graph signals arise in many modern applications, leading to the emergence of the area of graph signal processing (GSP) in the last decade. GSP theory extends concepts and techniques from traditional digital signal processing (DSP) to data indexed by generic graphs, including the graph Fourier transform (GFT), graph filter design, and sampling and recovery of graph signals. However, most of the research effort in this field has been devoted to the purely deterministic setting. In this study, we consider the extension of statistical signal processing (SSP) theory by developing graph SSP (GSSP) methods and bounds. Special attention will be given to the development of GSP methods for monitoring the power systems, which has significant practical importance, in addition to its contribution to the enrichment of theoretical GSSP tools. In particular, we will discuss the following problems (as time permits): 1) Bayesian estimation of graph signals in non-linear models; 2) the identification of edge disconnections in networks based on graph filter representation; 3) the development of performance bounds, such as the well-known Cramér-Rao bound (CRB), on the performance in various estimation problems that are related to the graph structure; 4) the detection of false data injected (FDI) attacks on the power systems by GSP tools; 5) Laplacian learning with applications to admittance matrix estimation. The methods developed in these works use GSP concepts, such as graph spectrum, GSP, graph filters, and sampling over graphs.

The analysis and design of broadband multichannel systems typically involves convolutive mixing, characterised by matrices of transfer functions. Further, many broadband multichannel problems can be formulated using space-time covariance matrices that include an explicit lag variable and thus cross-correlation sequences as entries. This is in contrast to narrowband challenges, where the problem formulation relies on standard (i.e. constant) matrices; a rich set of solutions that are optimal in various senses can be reached from these formulations by matrix factorisations such as the eigenvalue or singular value decompositions. In order to extend the utility of such linear algebraic techniques to the broadband case, the diagonalisation or factorisation of matrices of functions is key.

In this webinar, I will show that such matrices are quite ubiquitous in multichannel signal processing, review some of the theory for their factorisations, and show how with such techniques broadband formulations and solutions directly generalise from their narrowband counterparts. I will sketch out a number of algorithms and illustrate their use in a few example applications such as beamforming, angle or arrival estimation, and signal compaction.

In recent years, information hiding methods have been increasingly applied in computer networks, especially by malware. This webinar starts with an introduction to network-level information hiding methods, including techniques of network covert channel research and selected methods of censorship circumvention. It highlights the recent advancements regarding a taxonomy for concealment and obfuscation methods (cf. [1,2] and and provides an outlook on future steps to be undertaken in this context. Afterwards, the webinar highlights a novel concealment method that called a *history covert channel*. A history covert channel points to recently seen legitimate traffic to minimize the amount of transferred secret data [3] (as it only transfers a “pointer” to legitimate data). Further the webinar, presents a covert channel called epsilon-kappa-libur that circumvents highly-cited heuristics and two recent ML-based detection methods [4].

The new era of healthcare digitization brings many advantages for patients and medical staff, but also transforms the medical institutions into a novel and valuable target of cybercriminals. Cybersecurity hazards involving healthcare institutions, such as big data breaches with stolen medical records, ransomware attacks, (Distributed) Denial of Service attacks followed by interruptions of various medical processes or insider threats, can be found nowadays in many headlines of world news agencies. The Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) infrastructure of modern hospitals deploys different standards and protocols for storing and transferring data between different modalities. The most used and important standard is DICOM (Digital Imaging and COmmunication in Medicine), which provide a framework for a diagnostically-accurate representation, processing, transfer, storage and display of medical imaging data. DICOM files combine medical media with patient/study/equipment/other metadata, while different transport mechanisms are defined for their exchange.
This webinar tries to demonstrate different security problems connected with the DICOM standard, such as the abuse of insecure or poorly-configured DICOM/PACS servers available on Internet; the possibility to access or perform different malicious manipulations on stored DICOM files, such as adding or removing evidence of medical conditions from volumetric medical scans by deep learning techniques, which can even deceive radiologists and state-of-the-art AI screening tools; abuse of information hiding techniques with the possibility to hide an executable code into a DICOM file, or to create covert channels useful for covert communication, privacy-leakage or data exfiltration, or to create and spread stegomalware; etc. In addition, security features currently used in DICOM are presented, together with crash course in DICOM.
