Defending Against Hit-and-Run Attackers in Collaborative Spectrum Sensing of Cognitive Radio Networks: A Point System

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Collaborative spectrum sensing is an important technique to combat many random factors in cognitive radio systems. However, it is vulnerable to attacks like false reports of spectrum situation. Particularly, a hit-and-run attack policy is proposed in this paper, which cannot be mitigated by traditional approaches of attacker detection in cognitive radio systems. Motivated by the system of points for penalizing reckless drivers in DMV, a point based attacker detection algorithm is proposed, whose effectiveness is demonstrated by numerical simulations.
