A Survey on Security in Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks

  • Conference paper

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCCN,volume 7865)

Abstract

Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs) are the most prominent enabling network technology for Intelligent Transportation Systems. VANETs provide many new exciting applications and opportunities albeit transportation safety and facilitation applications are their core drivers. Security of vehicular networks remains the most significant concern in VANETs deployment – because it is mandatory to assure public and transportation safety. In this paper, we review the various dimensions of VANETs security including security threats, challenges in providing security in vehicular networks environment, requirements and attributes of security solutions. We also provide taxonomy and critically review of the notable security solutions – available for VANETs in literature.
