© 2016 IEEE. Massive Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) system is regarded as an emerging technology to enhance the capacity (achievable rate) of wireless communication systems. In this paper, we present an iterative algorithm that adapts transmit signal vector and power of the user using game theory to enhance the physical-layer security (achievable secrecy rate) of massive MIMO system in the presence of eavesdropper and jammers. The proposed algorithm takes account of impact of jammers while meeting the target Signal-to-Interference-plus-Noise Ratio (SINR) and the impact of both eavesdropper and jammers while evaluating the secrecy rate of the users. Furthermore, we present the existence and uniqueness of Nash equilibrium of the game used in this paper. We evaluate the performance of the algorithm using numerical results obtained from simulations. When both eavesdropper and jammers are present close to the users, secrecy rate of legitimate users degrade significantly.
