Abstract
With the rapid development of IoT (Internet of Things), VANETs (Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks) have become an attractive ad-hoc network that brings convenience into people’s lives. Vehicles can be informed of the position, direction, speed and other real-time information of nearby vehicles to avoid traffic jams and accidents. However, VANET environments could be dangerous in the absence of security protection. Because of the openness and self-organization of VANETs, there are plenty of malicious pathways. To guarantee vehicle security, the research aims to provide an effective VANET security mechanism that can track malicious vehicles as necessary. Therefore, this work focuses on malicious vehicles and proposes an anonymous authentication scheme in VANETs based on the fair blind signature to protect vehicle security.
Keywords
