—In this article, we made an attempt to clarify it that
the inadequacy problem of required spectrum for the exchanges
presented in MANET can be solved by means of the Cognitive
radio network since it has the sensing potentiality of their
surrounding environment and can access to a supplementary
frequency band via their parameters comparison. Key
management and authentication are two important factors in
MANET security. The recent development in Identity-based
cryptography has made this method a potential candidate for
MANET. However the security in CR-MANET has attracted
less attention in comparison with other regions. The authors try
to propose an Identity-based cryptography with threshold
secret sharing which has been designed for MANET security
especially; this method will result in the elimination of SSDF
attack trouble in Cognitive radio Ad-Hoc Networks, where the
intruder sends wrong results of local spectrum sensing and
leads to a wrong spectrum sensing determination in cognitive
radios consequently. Following cooperative spectrum sensing
scheme, it can find out SSDF attack occurrence, limit intruders’
access to t neighbor nodes for the key updating or delete the
intruder nodes from the network.
