This paper investigates the feedback delay effects on physical layer security. The investigation considers a dual-hop single amplify-and-forward based untrustworthy half/full-duplex two-way relay with a finite number of friendly jammers in the system model. According to the Monte-Carlo simulation results, the feedback delay degrades the system secrecy achievable rate and causes system coding gain losses in high signal-to-noise regimes. Results also show that if the number of friendly jammers in the system model increases then system secrecy achievable rate tends to degrade and causes system coding gain losses. Results also show that better system secrecy achievable rate can be achieved when the relay terminal operates in full-duplex mode.
