We consider transmission over a binary erasure wiretap channel using the code construction method introduced by Rathi et al. based on two edge type Low-Density Parity-Check (LDPC) codes and the coset encoding scheme. By generalizing the method of computing conditional entropy for standard LDPC ensembles introduced by Méasson, Montanari, and Urbanke to two edge type LDPC ensembles, we show how the equivocation for the wiretapper can be computed. We find that relatively simple constructions give very good secrecy performance and are close to the secrecy capacity.
