© 2016 IEEE. Considering a multicell network for the secure wireless information and power transfer, this paper studies the joint design of transmit beamformers at the base stations (BSs) and receive signal splitting ratios at the end users' equipment (UE). The primary concern in this work is the network internal security, where there may be a single multiantenna eavesdropper or there is a risk that any near user may accidentally eavesdrop on the received signal of any far user. The objective is to maximize the minimum secrecy user rate under BS transmit power and UE minimum harvested energy constraints. New path-following algorithms are proposed for computational solutions of these difficult nonconvex optimization problems. Each iteration involves one simple convex quadratic program. Numerical results confirm that the proposed algorithms converge quickly after few iterations having a low computational complexity.
