Abstract

This paper studies the relay selection (RS) problem for full-duplex (FD) relay networks with multiple source-destination (SD) pairs under the attack of colluding eavesdroppers. Based on available channel state information (CSI), both optimal relay selection (ORS) and suboptimal relay selection (SRS) schemes are considered to maximize the minimum secrecy rate among all pairs in order to enhance the physical-layer security. The secrecy performance of the more practical SRS scheme is then evaluated in terms of intercept probability and diversity order. The SRS achieves full diversity when the gains of the main-to- eavesdropper and the main-to-interference channels increase asymptotically.
