Abstract

Primary user emulation attack, which targets distabilizing the queuing dynamics of cognitive radio networks, is studied using game theoretic argument. The attack and defense are modeled as a stochastic game. The Nash equilibrium of the game is studied. In particular, the Lyapunov drift is considered as the reward in each round. Explicit expressions of the Nash equilibrium strategies are obtained.
