AbstractIn this work, we investigate the problem of secure broadcasting over block-fading wiretap channels with limited channel knowledge at the transmitter. More particularly, we analyze the effect of having a finite rate feedback on the throughput of multi-user broadcast wiretap channels. We consider that the transmitter is only provided by a $b$-bits feedback of the main channel state information (CSI) sent by each legitimate receiver, at the beginning of each fading block, over error-free public links with limited capacity. Also, we assume that the transmitter is aware of the statistics of the eavesdropper's CSI but not of its channel's realizations. Under these assumptions of CSI uncertainty, we characterize the ergodic secrecy capacity of the system when a common message is broadcasted to all legitimate receivers, the ergodic secrecy sum-capacity when multiple independent messages are transmitted, and the ergodic secrecy capacity region for the broadcast channel with confidential messages (BCCM). In all three scenarios, we show that as long as the transmitter has some knowledge of the main CSI, obtained even through a 1-bit CSI feedback, a non-zero secrecy rate can still be achieved. The impact of having the feedback sent over a binary erasure channel (BEC) is also investigated for the BCCM case. Here again, and even with the possibility of having the feedback bits erased, a positive secrecy rate can still be achieved as long as the erasure event is not a probability-one event. An asymptotic analysis of the obtained results is provided for the high SNR regime, and the scaling law of the system, when the number of legitimate receivers is large, is also presented.

Secure SC systems over generalized fading channels with imperfect CSI and co-channel interferenceYang, Liang; Alouini, Mohamed-Slim (2018 IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference (WCNC), Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018-06-11) [Conference Paper]In this paper, we consider the average secrecy capacity of a single-input multiple-output (SIMO) system with channel estimation error over generalized fading channels in the presence of co-channel interference and an eavesdropper. More specifically, we assume that selection combining is applied at both the receiver and eavesdropper. We first present statistical analysis for the signal-to-interference plus noise ratio (SINR). Then, closed-form expressions for the average secrecy capacity are derived for two special cases: Rayleigh fading and no interference. For the general case, we focus on the asymptotic secrecy capacity analysis. Finally, numerical results are provided for average secrecy capacity with with different values of N and N. Results show that the scaling law of the secrecy capacity is 1/L log (N /N).
Achievable Rates of Secure Transmission in Gaussian MISO Channel with Imperfect Main Channel EstimationZhou, Xinyu; Rezki, Zouheir; Alomair, Basel; Alouini, Mohamed-Slim (2015 IEEE Globecom Workshops (GC Wkshps), Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016-02-26) [Conference Paper]A Gaussian multiple-input single-output (MISO) fading channel is considered. We assume that the transmitter, in addition to the statistics of all channel gains, is aware instantaneously of a noisy version of the channel to the legitimate receiver. On the other hand, the legitimate receiver is aware instantaneously of its channel to the transmitter, whereas the eavesdropper instantaneously knows all channel gains. We evaluate an achievable rate using a Gaussian input without indexing an auxiliary random variable. A sufficient condition for beamforming to be optimal is provided. When the number of transmit antennas is large, beamforming also turns out to be optimal. In this case, the maximum achievable rate can be expressed in a simple closed form and scales with the logarithm of the number of transmit antennas. Furthermore, in the case when a noisy estimate of the eavesdropper's channel is also available at the transmitter, we introduce the SNR difference and the SNR ratio criterions and derive the related optimal transmission strategies and the corresponding achievable rates.
On the low SNR capacity of MIMO fading channels with imperfect channel state informationBenkhelifa, Fatma; Tall, Abdoulaye; Rezki, Zouheir; Alouini, Mohamed-Slim (IEEE Transactions on Communications, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-06) [Article]The capacity of multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) Rayleigh fading channels with full knowledge of channel state information (CSI) at both the transmitter and the receiver (CSI-TR) has been shown recently to scale at low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) essentially as SNR log(1/SNR), independently of the number of transmit and receive antennas. In this paper, we investigate the ergodic capacity of MIMO Rayleigh fading channel with estimated channel state information at the transmitter (CSI-T) and possibly imperfect channel state information at the receiver (CSI-R). Our framework can be seen as a generalization of previous works as it can capture the perfect CSI-TR as a special case when the estimation error variance goes to zero. In this paper, we mainly focus on the low SNR regime, and we show that the capacity scales as (1-α) SNR log(1/SNR), where α is the estimation error variance. This characterization shows the loss of performance due to error estimation over the perfect channel state information at both the transmitter and the receiver. As a by-product of our new analysis, we show that our framework can be also extended to characterize the capacity of MIMO Rician fading channels at low SNR with possibly imperfect CSI-T and CSI-R. © 1972-2012 IEEE.
