In spectrum sharing, incumbents with sensitive parameters require full protection of their operations. The incumbents protection includes the protection of its privacy (e.g., operational frequency) against inference attacks carried out by malicious authorized secondary users. In this paper, we develop an analytical model to analyze the vulnerability of the incumbents frequency to inference attacks and validate it by simulation. Specifically, we study random and ordered channel assignment schemes and compare results for both schemes.
