We consider a cooperative relay network in the presence of many eavesdroppers whose locations are distributed according to a homogeneous Poisson point process. The relay, which operates in amplify-and-forward protocol, has very large transmit and receive antenna arrays, while other nodes are equipped with a single antenna. We assume that the relay exploits maximum ratio combing (MRC) in the uplink and maximum ration transmission in the downlink, while all eavesdroppers are able to exploit MRC to maximize the received signals. In addition, there is no perfect channel state information of any eavesdroppers since all eavesdroppers in practice tend to hide from the legitimate users. Furthermore, we suppose that there are direct links between source and eavesdroppers, while a direct link between source and destination does not exist. Under such assumptions, which are totally biased towards eavesdroppers, we examine the security performance of the proposed system throughout secrecy outage probability and connection outage probability.
