Abstract: This paper proposed a spectrum-aware secure opportunistic routing (S2OR) protocol against the dynamic characteristics of spectrum and the potential selective forwarding attack in cognitive radio networks.During the spectrum sensing phase,the availability probability of link among cognitive nodes is analyzed by modeling primary user activity.During the routing selection phase,a trust management model is exploited to examine node’s reliability for packet forwarding,so as to select relay nodes with high trustability and ensure the integrity of data transmission.With the local information,a comprehensive routing metric called the expected throughput,consisting of link availability probability,link quality and node’s trustability,is computed.On this basis,cognitive nodes can opportunistically select candidate forwarding nodes and the corresponding data channels.Simulation results demonstrate that S2OR can well adapt to the dynamics of spectrum,result in higher throughput and reduce the impacts of malicious attacks at the same time.
