This paper investigates a secure transmission in the multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) cognitive wiretap networks, where a secondary transmitter (Alice) sends data to a secondary receiver (Bob) in the presence of an eavesdropper (Eve). In order to solve the problems of inter channel interference and inter antenna synchronization encountered by traditional MIMO technologies, the antenna transmission scheme is adopted at the transmitter. As a comparison, we design two different antenna

Moreover, due to outdated channel state information (CSI) of the interference link from Alice to the primary user (PU), we propose power control mechanism to protect the quality of service (QoS) of PU. Furthermore, the closed-form for the secrecy outage probability and the secrecy throughput with TAS-MRC and DSM-MRC schemes are derived to evaluate the secrecy performance, respectively. What's more, we explore the security diversity gain and coding gain based on the asymptotic secrecy outage probability. As the results, it demonstrates that DSM-MRC requires less CSI and is convenient for modulation and demodulation, but sacrifices some secrecy performance gains between two proposed schemes.
