Physical Layer Security With RF Energy Harvesting in AF Multi-Antenna Relaying Networks- MATLAB PROJECTS CODE


In this paper we analyze the secrecy capacity of a halfduplex energy harvesting (EH)-based multi-antenna amplify-andforward (AF) relay network in the presence of a passive eavesdropper. During the first phase, while the source is in transmission mode, the legitimate destination transmits an auxiliary artificial noise (AN) signal which has here two distinct purposes, a) to transfer power to the relay b) to improve system security.

Since the AN is known at the legitimate destination, it is easily canceled at the intended destination which is not the case at the eavesdropper. In this respect, we derive new exact analytical expressions for the ergodic secrecy capacity for various well-known EH relaying protocols, namely, time switching relaying (TSR), power splitting relaying (PSR) and ideal relaying receiver (IRR).

Monte Carlo simulations are also provided throughout our investigations to validate the analysis. The impacts of some important system parameters such as EH time, power splitting ratio, relay location, AN power, EH efficiency and the number of relay antennas, on the system performance are investigated. The results reveal that the PSR protocol generally outperforms the TSR approach in terms of the secrecy capacity.
