This paper considers the use of polar codes to enable secure transmission over parallel relay channels. By exploiting the properties of polar codes over parallel channels, a polar encoding algorithm is designed based on Channel State Information (CSI) between the legitimate transmitter (Alice) and the legitimate receiver (Bob). Different from existing secure transmission schemes, the proposed scheme does not require CSI between Alice and the eavesdropper (Eve). The proposed scheme is proven to be reliable and shown to be capable of transmitting information securely under Amplify-and-Forward (AF) relay protocol, thereby providing security against passive and active attackers.
