Abstract
One of the main threats to body sensor networks (BSNs) is Denial of Service attacks that disrupt communications used to transmit patients' health data. The application of cognitive radio (CR) technology into BSNs can mitigate such a threat and improve network availability, by allowing network nodes to cooperatively agree on a new radio channel whenever the quality of the channel being in use decreases. However, the cooperative spectrum sensing mechanisms used by CRs should also be protected to p...
