The Cooperative Spectrum sensing model is gaining importance among the cognitive radio network sharing groups. While the crowd-sensing model (technically the cooperative spectrum sensing) model has positive developments, one of the critical challenges plaguing the model is the false or manipulated crowd sensor data, which results in implications for the secondary user’s network. Considering the efficacy of the spectrum sensing by crowd-sensing model, it is vital to address the issues of falsifications and manipulations, by focusing on the conditions of more accurate determination models. Concerning this, a method of avoiding falsified crowd sensors from the process of crowd sensors centric cooperative spectrum sensing has portrayed in this article. The proposal is a protocol that selects affirmed crowd sensor under diversified factors of the decision credibility about spectrum availability. An experimental study is a simulation approach that evincing the competency of the proposal compared to the other contemporary models available in recent literature.
