In this paper, we identify the tradeoff between security and reliability in the amplify-and-forward (AF) distributed beamforming (DBF) cooperative network with K untrusted relays. In particular, we derive the closed-form expressions for the connection outage probability (COP), the secrecy outage probability (SOP), the tradeoff relationship, and the secrecy throughput. Analytical and simulation results demonstrate that increasing K leads to the enhancement of the reliability performance, but the degradation of the security performance. This tradeoff also means that there exists an optimal K maximizing the secrecy throughput.
