Evaluation of Secrecy Rate in Cooperative Communication System

11 pagesPublished: March 13, 2019


Cooperative system is a tendency for future communications because of its spatial diversity to improve the system performance. However, the security is a critical issue in the wireless application with a highly private request. Although the encryption schemes have been proposed to approach the secure purpose, those schemes need a lot of computing resource. It is not practical for the applications with limited computing ability, such as IoT. According to Shannon theory of perfect secrecy, the security could be implemented on the physical layer. Based on the positive secrecy rate, the evaluation of security, secure communication could be practical. This work concentrates on the theoretical solution to the secrecy rate in the AF mode cooperative communication system. Also, the numerical results with the proposed methodology are given. It shows the effects of eavesdropper could not affect the secure communication if the number of the eavesdropper is less than that of relays in the system. The appropriate relay assignment benefits the secure communication.

Keyphrases: cooperative communication, IoT, physical layer security, relay assignment, secrecy capacity
