VANET Security: Going Beyond Cryptographic-Centric Solutions

Abstract : The need for safety and comfort in vehicular environments has led to a lot of research in vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANET), ranging from vehicle to vehicle (V2V) and vehicle to infrastructure (V2I) communications to security. As regards the latter aspect, mostly the focus has been on resorting to public key infrastructure (PKI) and its related concepts. Moreover, methods used to detect the most feared security attacks are based almost exclusively on the use of physical characteristics as well as PKI concepts or both. However with emerging technologies that enable connecting a vehicle to external resources, VANET is evolving, thus inheriting security threats that are common place in conventional IT systems. Therefore, as it is shown in the paper, VANET security must go beyond cryptographic-centric mechanisms that are commonly used for providing data security in wireless environment
