An Intrusion Detection System (IDS) for Cognitive Radio Network (CRN) is proposed. The considered IDS is constructed by combining two classic mechanisms for CRN intrusion detection, namely the Localization mechanism and the Reputation mechanism. The composition of the mechanisms is done with the aid of a Genetic Algorithm (GA) responsible for calibrating the IDS, that is, for attributing "Weights" to each of the mechanisms. Simulations have been implemented that demonstrate a superior performance of the authors' proposal, when compared to an uncalibated IDS.
