Fuzzy logic based authentication in cognitive radio networks

Israa Nasir Abdulhussien, Safa Abdulridha Abduljaleel


Security is a critical issue in cognitive radio networks because the cognitive node enters and variably leaves the spectrum, so it is difficult to process communication secretly. We suggested a fuzzy logic-based implicit authentication mechanism to be a solution for the confusion if there were any cognitive node doubts it to be unauthentic, and to improve user privacy in cognitive radio networks. Using a fuzzy logic technique, the proposed scheme computed certification based on proposed feedback. When a cognitive node needs to join the network, it is verified by using fuzzy logic if the node was authenticated or not. Our proposed fuzzy logic's results implicit authentication proved that it was a very successful and applicable scheme on cognitive radio networks, and it will be able to make an effective final decision in the context of incompleteness, ambiguity, and heterogeneity
