A joint data and interference transmission scheme based on a new distributed asynchronous cyclic delay diversity (dACDD) technique is proposed for cooperative communication systems. Without any perfect channel state information from a legitimate user (LU) and an eavesdropping user (EU), joint remote radio head (RRH) selection for the data and jamming signal transmissions is proposed for dACDD to achieve the maximum diversity gain at the LU, while degrading the receive signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio at the EU. The proposed dACDD is the extension of distributed cyclic delay diversity, which requires a tight synchronization among the central control unit and RRHs. Thus, processing at each RRH causing no intersymbol interference at the LU is developed. Then, the selection scheme for a data RRH is proposed, which selects a single RRH connected with the channel having the greatest channel magnitude as the data RRH to transmit a desired confidential message and controls the remaining RRHs to transmit an artificial interference sequence to the LU and EU. For the proposed distributed system, the marginal secrecy outage probability and marginal probability of non-zero achievable secrecy rate are analyzed by deriving closed-form expressions, whose correctness is verified via link-level simulations over non-identically distributed frequency selective fading channels.
