## Abstract

**:**

## 1. Introduction

#### 1.1. Motivation and Contribution

- A component-forward cooperative communication is proposed to minimize the possibility of interference in IBFD with D2D, AN and modulation-based interference reduction [1].
- Artificial Noise (AN) is added to prevent the increasing security threats for the proposed FD component-forward (FD-CF) cooperative communication system. The AN increases the interference at the Eve’s node and declines the possible material decoding. It also drains Eve by providing high computational complexity and energy.
- The aforesaid approaches are used for refining the system’s secrecy capacity, outage probability and throughput.
- Alongside the basic system, RFEH is also used to further elaborate the proposed scheme with secrecy capacity, outage probability and throughput in the presence of a TS based RFEH circuit.
