In this chapter, we will present criteria for user selection and relay selection to enhance the physical layer security in multiuser multi-relay networks. Specifically, for multiuser networks with multiple amplify-and-forward (AF) relays, we present three criteria to select the best relay and user pair. Criteria I and II study the received signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) at the receivers and perform the selection by maximising the SNR ratio ofthe user to the eavesdroppers. To this end, criterion I relies on both the main and eavesdropper links, while criterion II relies on the main links only. Criterion III is the standard max-min selection criterion, which maximises the minimum of the dual-hop channel gains of main links. For the three selection criteria, we examine the system secrecy performance by deriving the analytical expressions for the secrecy outage probability. We also derive the asymptotic analysis for the secrecy outage probability with high main-to-eavesdropper ratio.
