Abstract

In this paper, we consider mobile edge computing (MEC) networks against proactive eavesdropping. To maximize the transmission rate, IRS assisted UAV communications are applied. We take the joint design of the trajectory of UAV, the transmitting beamforming of users, and the phase shift matrix of IRS. The original problem is strong non-convex and difficult to solve. We first propose two basic modes of the proactive eavesdropper, and obtain the closed-form solution for the boundary conditions of the two modes. Then we transform the original problem into an equivalent one and propose an alternating optimization (AO) based method to obtain a local optimal solution. The convergence of the algorithm is illustrated by numerical results. Further, we propose a zero forcing (ZF) based method as sub-optimal solution, and the simulation section shows that the proposed two schemes could obtain better performance compared with traditional schemes.
