Cognitive radio networks (CRNs) have a shortcoming in that attackers can increase their ability to disturb secondary users (SUs). This paper focuses on jamming attacks in the physical layer, in which several attackers try to interrupt SUs by injecting the interference into their communications. Once a jammer transmits interfering signals on the channel during the defined time, all ongoing transmissions on this channel will be corrupted. It is quite difficult for SUs to protect a single-hop data transmission from jammers. So, obtaining a solution for secure multi-hop data transmission in the presence of jammers becomes a more challenging task in CRNs. This paper investigates a strategy to find the optimal route and channels for transmission between cognitive transmitters and receivers in the presence of jammers in CRNs. In this scenario, the jammers are located randomly and their jamming behavior is assumed to follow a Gaussian distribution. We provide an optimal link–channel pair allocation scheme in which the secondary transmitter (the source) selects the best relay and a suitable channel for each hop in the source-to-destination route to protect the information intended to the secondary receiver (the destination) from the jammers. Simulation results prove the efficiency of the proposed scheme in a CR network.
