Cognitive Radio Research: Spectrum Sensing and Identification of Radio Terminals and Malicious Users

By

Dr. Yu-Dong Yao, Professor and Department Director, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, NJ 07030

ABSTRACT:

Cognitive radio is a promising technology for improving spectrum utilization and providing opportunities for new and advanced wireless services. Challenging research issues in cognitive radio include spectrum sensing and network security. This presentation reports recent research activities and results in cooperative spectrum sensing, classification and identification of cognitive radio terminals using machine learning algorithms, and techniques for countering malicious users and attacks.
