Promoting Security and Efficiency in D2D Underlay Communication: A Bargaining Game Approach


Device-to-device (D2D) communication is a promising technology for expanding the next generation wireless cellular network. To deal with the security challenges and optimize the system communication quality, this paper investigates the security and efficiency problem in D2D underlay communication with the presence of malicious eavesdroppers. Fairness and strategy space of both D2D user equipment (DUE) and cellular user equipment (CUE) are taken into consideration under the control of proposed efficiency functions. Problems are formulated as a series of utility functions built on the unit price of jamming power and the amount of jamming service. Extracting system model into a price negotiation under Bargaining Game (PNBG) that a buyer and a seller both desiring maximum its profits, we solve the problems by reaching an agreement of the two sides. The step number of bargain process is also a restriction under consideration. For the Non-Step scheme, an Evaluation Function (EF) and a Comprehensive Utility Function (CUF) are demonstrated to analyze the negotiation process. For Step-Contained scheme, the step number of iteration is involved and an Attenuation Function (AF) is introduced to modify the Bargaining Game. Algorithms of two schemes are designed to derive the equilibrium point for reaching an agreement. Finally, simulations are illustrated for verifying proposed approach.
