In this paper, an artificial noise (AN) injection technique is incorporated in a free-space optical (FSO) communication system with the aim of enhancing the secrecy performance of the system. An intensity modulated direct detection (IM/DD) FSO link which is subjected to Malaga ($\mathcal {M}$) distributed turbulence with pointing errors is considered in this paper. The performance of FSO systems is evaluated by deriving novel closed-form expressions for the secrecy outage probability (SOP), strictly positive secrecy capacity (SPSC), and throughput of the system. By formulating a constrained optimization problem, we discuss an optimal power allocation strategy for throughput maximization in the considered system. It is shown through the results that the proposed technique is very effective in improving the secrecy performance of FSO systems. © 2009-2012 IEEE.
