Abstract For streaming applications, we consider parallel burst erasure channels in the presence of an eavesdropper. The legitimate receiver must perfectly recover each source symbol subject to a decoding delay constraint without the eavesdropper gaining any information from his observation. For a certain class of code parameters, we propose delay-optimal M-link codes that recover multiple bursts of erasures of a limited length, and where the codes provide perfect security even if the eavesdropper can observe a link of his choice. Our codes achieve the maximum secrecy rate for the channel model.
