Performance Analysis of Physical Layer Security Over Generalized-K Fading Channels Using a Mixture Gamma Distribution Academic Article uri icon


  • 2015 IEEE. In this letter, the secrecy performance of the classic Wyner's wiretap model over generalized-K fading channels is studied. The closed-form expressions for the average secrecy capacity, secure outage probability, and the probability of strictly positive secrecy capacity are derived. The new expressions provide a unified form, which can handle several of the well-known composite fading environments as special or limiting cases. Monte-Carlo simulations are performed to verify the proposed analysis models.
