In this paper, we analyze the security capability of single-input multiple-output wireless transmission systems over k-μ shadowed fading channels in the presence of multiple eavesdroppers. Our security analysis relies on an important standard, i.e., average secrecy capacity which is more difficult and suitable for analyzing active eavesdropping scenario than secure outage probability and probability of strictly positive secrecy capacity. The novel expression of average secrecy capacity over k-μ shadowed fading channels with multiple eavesdroppers is deduced. The results of Monte Carlo simulation fully prove the correctness of our theoretical derivation. Through the obtained results, we observe that large antenna quantity in the highest signal-to-noise ratio regime, small number of the eavesdroppers, and small signal-to-noise-ratio of eavesdropping link will enhance confidentiality of the system under consideration.
