A technique called network coding could protect users’ privacy and providers’ content while making communications networks more efficient. Network coding is an innovative new approach to network design that promises much more efficient use of bandwidth, and MIT researchers have made seminal contributions to its development. But in recent work, some of those researchers have concentrated on a different application of the same technology: secure communication. Media companies have shown interest in the new work as a means of simultaneously protecting their content and their customers’ privacy.
