Secure Protocols or How Communication Generates Correlation

Author

Listed:
  • Gossner, Olivier

Abstract

Correlated equilibria and communication equilibria are useful notions to understand the strategic effects of information and communication. Between these two models, a protocol generates information through communication. We define a secure protocol as a protocol from which no individual may have strategic incentives to deviate and characterize these protocols.
