This letter investigates a multiple-input single-output secrecy channel, where the legitimate user and the eavesdroppers employ a power splitting scheme for information decoding and energy harvesting (EH), simultaneously. An artificial noise is embedded to the information bearing signal to interfere the eavesdroppers and to harvest power by all receivers (i.e., legitimate user and eavesdroppers). We consider the robust secrecy rate maximization problem subject to the transmit power and the EH constraints by incorporating the norm-bounded channel uncertainty. This robust optimization problem is not convex, and thus, it can be reformulated as a convex one along with matrix transformations and convex conic optimization techniques, which is iteratively solved based on constrained concave-convex procedure-based algorithm. Finally, numerical results are provided to validate our proposed algorithm.
