Securing VANETs for Vehicular CPS

This chapter presents trust-based security in vehicular CPS using probabilistic and deterministic approaches, which are based on the local information obtained through interactions among vehicles to determine legitimacy of the messages and to decide whether the messages would be considered for further transmission over the network or be dropped.
