© 1994-2012 IEEE. Based on the knowledge of the channel distributions of a multi-input single-output wireless network of multiple transmitter-user pairs overheard by an eavesdropper, this letter develops an outage-aware beamforming design to optimize the users' quality-of-service (QoS) in terms of their secrecy rates. This is a very computationally difficult problem with a nonconcave objective function and nonlinear equality constraints in beamforming vectors. A path-following algorithm of low-complexity and rapid convergence is proposed for computation, which is also extended to solving the problem of maximizing the network's secure energy efficiency under users' QoS constraints. Numerical examples are provided to verify the efficiency of the proposed algorithms.
