Secrecy Outage Analysis for SIMO Underlay Cognitive Radio Networks over Generalized-K Fading Channels Academic Article uri icon


  • 2016 IEEE. In this letter, we consider a single-input multiple-output cognitive wiretap system over generalized-K channels, where the eavesdropper overhears the transmission from the secondary transmitter (ST) to the legitimate receiver. Both the primary user and the ST are equipped with a single antenna, whereas the legitimate and the eavesdropper receivers are equipped with multiple antennas. The close-form expression for the secrecy outage probability is derived. Simulations are presented to validate the accuracy of our proposed analytical results.
