To protect confidential communications from eavesdropping attacks in wireless networks, we propose a novel anti-eavesdropping scheme named AE-Shelter. In our proposed scheme, we place a number of friendly jammers at a circular boundary to protect legitimate communications. The jammers sending artificial noise can mitigate the eavesdropping capability of wiretapping the confidential information. We also establish a theoretical model to evaluate the performance of AE-Shelter. Our results show that our proposed AE-Shelter scheme can significantly reduce the eavesdropping risk without significantly degrading the network performance.
