We propose a secure transmission scheme based on space shift keying (SSK) in which the indices associated with the transmit antennas are assigned dynamically according to the channel towards the legitimate receiver. We first derive an asymptotic secrecy rate under the perfect channel reciprocity assumption. Then, we study the impacts of imperfect reciprocity and presence of a nearby eavesdropper on the reliability and eavesdropping resilience of the proposed scheme. Finally, we introduce an enhanced antenna index assignment algorithm which is more robust to imperfect reciprocity, and is capable of preventing a nearby eavesdropper from acquiring the transmitted bits.
