—The Federal Communication Commission (FCC) regulates radio spectrum by applying regulatory paradigms. In the conventional spectrum management paradigm, a group of primary users is given license to operate exclusively in a specific band. Recent studies have shown that a new paradigm is needed to alleviate the spectrum shortage problem. In the new paradigm, licensed bands are opened up to unlicensed operations by secondary users on a non-interference basis to primary users. Cognitive radio (CR… 
Synchronized MAC Protocol For Multi-Hop Cognitive Radio Networks
TLDR
This paper proposes an alternative MAC protocol for multi-hop cognitive radio networks in which the use of a CCC is avoided and inherently provides a solution to issues like CCC saturation problem, Denial of Service attacks (DoS) and multi-channel hidden problem.
An Opportunistic Pervasive Networking Paradigm: Multi‐Hop Cognitive Radio Networks
TLDR
This chapter outlines the design challenges for the MAC layer protocols and describes several MAC protocols proposed for multi-hop cognitive radio networks, emphasizing their strengths and weaknesses.
An Efficient MAC Protocol for Improving the Network Throughput for Cognitive Radio Networks
TLDR
A decentralized adaptive medium access control protocol that has no dedicated global common control channel (CCC) and can utilize available resources efficiently and significantly increases cognitive radio networks (CRNs) connectivity and data throughput.
Hybrid Common Control Channel Based MAC Protocol for Cognitive Radio Ad-Hoc Networks
TLDR
Experimental results show that the performance of proposed hybrid CCC based MAC protocol is out performed compared with existing In-band CCC-MAC protocols with higher PU free channels and saturated unlicensed out-of band CCC -MAC protocols.

TLDR
This paper provides an exhaustive analysis of the various techniques/mechanisms that have been proposed in the literature for communication protocols (at the MAC, routing and transport layers), in the context of a CRN, as well as discuss in detail several security attacks that could be launched on CRNs and the countermeasure solutions that have be proposed to avoid or mitigate them.
MAC Protocol Design for Parallel Link Rendezvous in Ad Hoc Cognitive Radio Networks
TLDR
Two distributed Medium Access Control protocols are designed that provide proper rendezvous channel without CCC or synchronization for the CR ad-hoc networks and outperform other existing protocols with respect to Time to Rendezvous (TTR), channel utilization, and network throughput.
Spectrum-aware dynamic channel assignment in cognitive radio networks
TLDR
This paper proposes an efficient spectrum-aware dynamic channel assignment (SA-DCA) strategy for cognitive radio networks and shows that it results in significantly reduced interference to primary radio nodes and increased packet delivery ratio in MRMC-CRNs.
An overview of medium access control strategies for opportunistic spectrum access in cognitive radio networks
TLDR
This article focuses on the opportunistic spectrum access (OSA) functionality of the CR network MAC layer by which the secondary users access licensed spectrum in space and time with no harmful interference to primary users (PUs), without prior information on spectral usage.
Heterogeneous Coexistence of Cognitive Radio Networks in TV White Space
TLDR
This paper presents an architecture for enabling collaborative coexistence of heterogeneous CR networks over TVWS, called Symbiotic Heterogeneous coexistence ARchitecturE (SHARE), which establishes an indirect coordination mechanism between heterogeneousCR networks via a mediator system, which avoids the drawbacks of direct coordination.
Medium access control protocols in cognitive radio networks
TLDR
This paper introduces the state-of-the-art CR MAC protocols in overlay and underlay spectrum sharing modes, respectively and recommends considering the issues, such as MAC layer security and heterogeneous coexistence, in the design of CRMAC protocols.
