The emerging unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) pose a potential security threat for terrestrial communications when UAVs can be maliciously employed as UAV-eavesdroppers to wiretap confidential communications. To address such an aerial security threat, we present a friendly jamming scheme named terrestrial mobile jamming (TMJ) to protect terrestrial confidential communications from UAV eavesdropping. In our TMJ scheme, a jammer moving along the protection area can emit jamming signals toward the UAV-eavesdropper so as to reduce the eavesdropping risk. We evaluate the performance of our scheme by analyzing a secrecy-capacity maximization problem subject to the legitimate connectivity and eavesdropping probability. In addition, we investigate the optimized position for the jammer as well as its jamming power. Simulation results verify the effectiveness of the proposed scheme.
