Description: New plasma mechanism for the generation of toroidal magnetic field in the magnetosphere of Crab pulsar is presented. It is based on the development of two-stream instability in the relativistic electron-positron plasma of the pulsar magnetosphere. In particular, pulsar magnetosphere relativistic plasma is penetrated by ultrarelativistic electron beam and two-stream instability develops, as a result of which toroidal magnetic field is generated.
