As mission-critical Internet of Things (MC-IoT) is expected to carry important and private information, its high quality of service (QoS) and high physical layer (PHY) security are indispensable. Nevertheless, most existing PHY security related work is built on the assumption of infinite blocklength, which is not applicable to finite blocklength (FBL) transmission, a typical scenario in MC-IoT such as factory automation. In this paper, we address the PHY security issue of a hybrid duplex relay aided MC-IoT system with FBL. Closed-form expressions for statistical secrecy throughput of full-duplex (FD) and half-duplex (HD) relay systems are derived, respectively, which are verified by numerical results. Based on the closed-form secrecy throughput, joint optimization of blocklength and transmission powers at source and relay is conducted for FD and HD relay systems, respectively. A hybrid duplex relaying scheme is also proposed by selecting the duplex mode with a higher achievable secrecy throughput. Numerical results show that, together with the hybrid relaying scheme, the proposed relay system with joint power allocation and blocklength adaptation, relay mode selection achieves much higher secrecy throughput over the conventional sole FD or HD mode relaying systems. Also, it is revealed that increasing blocklength or transmitting power may not always lead to a higher secrecy throughput and energy efficiency (EE).
