Abstract:
In addition to standard authentication and data confidentiality requirements, Cognitive Radio Networks (CRNs) face distinct security issues such as primary user emulation and spectrum management attacks. A compromise of these will result in a denial of service, eavesdropping, forgery, or replay attack. These attacks must be considered while designing a secure media access control (MAC) protocol for CR networks. This paper presents a novel secure CR MAC protocol: the presented protocol is analysed for these security measures using formal logic methods such as Burrows-Abadi-Needham (BAN) logic. It is shown that the proposed protocol functions effectively to provide strong authentication and detection against malicious users leading to subsequent secure communication.
