Abstract

Dynamic spectrum reallocation, under which the spectrum owners temporarily share the underutilized spectrum to secondary users for economic profit, is an important approach to improve the spectrum utilization ratio. Auction is believed to be a natural marketing tool to incentivize the spectrum owners, and thus redistribute the idle spectrum efficiently. Extensive researches have been done in the problem of truthful spectrum auction, in which the bidders bid based on their true valuations of the spectrum. The true valuation of the individual bidder, however, is a private information which should be protected against exposure. In this paper, we propose a privacy preserving truthful spectrum auction scheme by utilizing homomorphic encryption. The proposed scheme reveals the group bids but hides the users' bids even from the auctioneer. The evaluation results show that the proposed scheme achieves good spectrum utilization efficiency with low communication and computation overheads.
