Security Challenges and Issues in Cognitive Radio Networks

This special issue aims to gather recent research efforts and contributions from academia and industry in addressing the security issues in cognitive radio networks. The open and dynamic nature of cognitive radio challenges the conventional wireless security paradigms e.g., cryptography and authentication, which derives researchers and scientists to seek new means to complement the traditional security methods and improve the cognitive radio security. This special issue will bring together leading researchers and developers to discuss and exchange their ideas and recent results in fields of security modeling, design, and evaluation in cognitive radio networks.
