Abstract

Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) systems are being developed to improve spectrum utilization. Most of the research on DSA systems assumes that the participants involved are honest, cooperative, and that no malicious adversaries will attack or exploit the network. Some recent research efforts have focused on studying security issues in cognitive radios but there are still significant security challenges in the implementation of DSA systems that have not been addressed. In this paper we focus on security issues in DSA. We identify various attacks (e.g., DoS attacks, system penetration, repudiation, spoofing, authorization violation, malware infection, data modification, etc.) and suggest various approaches to address them. We show that significant security issues exist that should be addressed by the research community if DSA is to find its way into production systems. We also show that, in many cases, existing approaches to securing IT systems can be applied to DSA and identify other DSA specific security challenges where additional research will be required.
