In this contribution we evaluate the transmission of confidential information over F composite fading channels in the presence of an eavesdropper (Eve) who also experiences F composite fading. Upon obtaining tractable closed-form expressions for the secure outage probability and the probability of strictly positive secrecy capacity, we analyze extensively the achievable physical layer security performance in the context of mm-wave communications. This is realized with the aid of extensive measurement results from realistic communication scenarios, which show the behavior of composite F fading channels in device-to-device communication scenarios. The offered results provide meaningful insights of theoretical and practical importance that are expected to be useful in the design of mm-wave based communication systems.
