Abstract

Interference exploitation has recently been shown to provide significant security benefits in multi-user communication systems. In this technique, the known interference is designed to be constructive to the legitimate users and disruptive to the malicious receivers. Accordingly, this paper analyzes the secrecy performance of constructive interference (CI) precoding technique in multi-user multiple-input single-output (MU-MISO) systems with phase-shift-keying (PSK) signals and in the presence of multiple passive eavesdroppers. The secrecy performance of CI technique is comprehensively investigated in terms of symbol error probability (SEP), secrecy sum-rate, and intercept probability (IP). Firstly, new and exact analytical expressions for the average SEP of the legitimate users and the eavesdroppers are derived. In addition, for simplicity and in order to provide more insights, very accurate approximations of the average SEPs are presented in closed-form. Departing from classical Gaussian rate analysis, we employ finite constellation rate expressions to investigate the secrecy sum-rate. In this regard, closed-form analytical expression of the ergodic secrecy sum-rate is obtained. Then, based on the new secrecy sum-rate expression we propose adaptive modulation (AM) scheme with the aim to enhance the secrecy performance. Finally, we present analytical expressions of the IP with fixed and adaptive modulations. The analytical and simulation results demonstrate that, the interference exploitation technique can provide additional up to 17dB gain in the transmit SNR in terms of SEP, and up to 10dB gain in terms of the secrecy sum-rate and the IP, compared to the conventional interference suppression technique. Furthermore, significant performance improvement up to 66% can be achieved with the proposed AM scheme.
