Along with the development of cognitive radio networks, designing optimistic security mechanisms is becoming a big challenge. This study proposes a taxonomy of attacks on cognitive radio networks. This will help researches to better understand the security problems and to design more optimistic countermeasures. A new simulation framework for security threats has been developed to check all these attacks and countermeasures. The simulation framework has been tested with a primary user emulation attack. A new testbed for simulations suitable for cognitive radio security is ready.
