Physical layer security in wireless networks has received increasing attention in recent years. In this paper, we consider multiple-input single-output (MISO) fading wiretap channels, where the transmitter utilizes artificial noise-aided precoding (ANaP) transmission strategy to maximize the secrecy capacity of the channel. When the channel state information (CSI) of Eavesdropper's (Eve's) channel is known at Alice, we prove that the optimal ANaP strategy reduces to the conventional precoding strategy, i.e., all the transmit power should be allocated to the precoding of information signal. When the CSI of Eve's channel is unknown at Alice, we find that there exists an optimal power allocation ratio between the information signal and the artificial noise and that this power ratio depends on the number of antennas as well as the available transmit power at Alice. In particular, when the available transmit power at Alice increases or the number of antennas at Alice decreases, more power should be allocated to the artificial noise.
