We consider secure wireless communications, where a source is communicating to a destination in the presence of K (K > 1) eavesdroppers. The source and destination both are equipped with multiple antennas, while each eavesdropper has a single antenna. The source aims to maximize the communication rate to the destination, while concealing the message from all the eavesdroppers. Combined with selective diversity, we propose a heuristic secrecy transmission scheme where the multiple-input-multiple-output (MIMO) secrecy channel is simplified into a multiple-input-single-output (MISO) one with the highest orthogonality to the eavesdropper channels. Then convex optimization is applied to obtain the optimal transmit covariance matrix for this selected MISO secrecy channel. Numerical results are provided to illustrate the efficacy of the proposed scheme.
