An Unidentified Location-Based Efficient Routing Protocol in VANET
Vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) use unidentified routing protocols that hide node uniqueness and which protects the node from outside observers to provide privacy protection. However, existing unidentified routing protocols depend on either hop-by-hop encryption or unnecessary traffic whichever makes high cost or cannot provide full privacy protection to data, sender, receiver, and routes. The high cost intensifies the essential resource constraint problem in VANET. To offer high privacy protection at a low cost, we propose an unidentified location-based efficient routing protocol. Here, using digital signatures and public key infrastructure (PKI) and mix zone-based security to protect message integrity is sufficient taking into account multilateral security. Main goal is to develop security architecture for VANETs that balances security requirements of all participants and also tries to identify to develop feasible mechanisms that fit in this architecture. This balances security requirements of all participants while keeping in mind the real time.
