Cognitive Radio Networks (CRNs) deal with opportunistic spectrum access in order to fully utilize the scarce of spectrum resources, with the development of cognitive radio technologies to greater utilization of the spectrum. Now-a-days Cognitive Radio (CR) is a promising concept for improving the utilization of limited radio spectrum resources for future wireless communications and mobile computing. In this paper we propose two approaches. At first we propose a trust aware model to authenticate the secondary users (SUs) in CRNs which provides a reliable technique to establish trust for CRNs. Secondly, we propose stochastic approach to show the free spectrum availability for SUs in CRNs. To evaluate the proposed approaches, we have modeled and analyzed steady state availability depending on Markov model for free spectrum by adopting QoS characteristics in cognitive radio networks.
