Abstract

This paper studies different uses of two cooperating relays to improve the secrecy rate of a wiretap channel. These two relays are assumed to perform only simple functions: either amplify-and-forward (AF) or jamming. Complex functions such as decode-and-forward (DF) are not considered. We study three modes of cooperation: i) cooperative jamming (CJ), ii) AF-aided beamforming and iii) mixed AF-aided beamforming and CJ, all with individual relay power constraints. While i) is known in the literature, our efforts are spent on ii) and iii). In particular, for iii), we assume that the jamming signals in two communication stages are correlated, giving rise to improved performances. We also propose a heuristic approach for selecting the appropriate cooperating mode. Simulation results illustrate the performance gain of each scheme under different channel conditions and the effectiveness of the proposed mode selection method. © 2012 IEEE.
