This paper studies the worst-case secrecy rate maximization problem under the total transmit power, the energy harvesting and the outage probability requirements. The problem is nonconvex, thus, hard to solve. Exploiting the special structure of the problem, we first reformulate as a DC (Difference of Convex functions) program. Then, we develop an efficient approach based on DCA (DC Algorithm) and alternating method for solving the problem. The computational results confirm the efficiency of the proposed approach.
