The Multi-Input Single-Output (MISO) Gaussian wiretap channel with delayed Channel State Information (CSI) available at the transmitter and at the eavesdropper is investigated. This scenario may occur when the legitimate receiver sends its channel state to the transmitter via a delayed feedback link which can be also overheard by an eavesdropper. The authors show that delayed CSI, even completely outdated, offers the opportunity to ensure the secrecy. Namely, by aligning the artificial noise at the legitimate receiver, a Secrecy Degrees of Freedom (SDoF) of 1=2 can be achieved.
