Cooperative jamming for multiuser multiple input multiple output (MIMO) broadcast channel is studied to enhance the physical layer security with the help of a friendly jammer. We assume the base station transmits multiple independent data streams to multiple legitimate users. During the transmission, however, there are multiple eavesdroppers with multiple antennas that have interests in the streams from the base station. In order to wiretap the desired streams, the eavesdroppers may collude or not, and maximize the signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) of the desired streams using receive beamforming. The optimal cooperative jammer is designed to keep the achieved SINR at eavesdroppers below a threshold to guarantee that the transmission from the base station to legitimate users is confidential. One main advantage of the proposed cooperative jamming scheme is that no modification is needed for the existing precoding schemes at the base station and decoding schemes at legitimate users. Thus, any existing practical precoding/decoding schemes for multiuser MIMO broadcast channel can be applied directly with the help of a friendly jammer using the proposed cooperative jamming.
