Security and Privacy in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs)

VANET

The advancement and wide deployment of wireless communication technologies have revolutionized human's lifestyles by providing the best convenience and flexibility ever in accessing the Internet services and various types of personal communication applications. Recently, car manufacturers and telecommunication industries gear up to equip each car with the technology that allows the drivers and passengers to communicate with each other as well as with the roadside infrastructure, which is located in some critical sections of the road, such as at every traffic light or any intersection or any stop sign, in order to improve driving experience, facilitate secure traffic management, and enhance driving safety. In spite of the numerous value-added application scenarios, the Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs) come with their own a set of challenges, especially in the aspects of security.
