Control channel jamming is a severe security problem in wireless networks. This results from the fact that the attackers can effectively launch the denial of service attacks by jamming the control channels. Traditional approaches to combating this problem such as channel hopping sequences may not be the secure solution against intelligent attackers because the reliability of control channels in cognitive radio ad hoc networks cannot be guaranteed. In this paper, the authors introduce a Jamming Resilient Control Channel (JRCC) game to model the interactions among cognitive radio users and the attacker under the impact of primary user activity.
