Abstract

Wireless security has become an important issue for modern wireless networks. Due to the broadcast nature of wireless channels possibility of eavesdropping the transmission is provided for non-legitimate receivers. In the present paper, we consider a multi-antenna wiretap channel in a fast-fading environment with only statistical channel state information available at the receiver. The overall performance of such channel is characterized by the ergodic secrecy capacity, which, in general, cannot be characterized explicitly. Nevertheless, based on the assumption that the numbers of antennas at legitimate terminals and the number of eavesdroppers grow large without bound, we derive a deterministic approximation for the achievable ergodic secrecy rate under arbitrary channel inputs. The obtained large-system approximation matches well with the actual simulated secrecy rates, revealing some interesting behavior of the secrecy rates in the given scenario.
