The Security of Vehicular
Professor J. P. Hubaux, EPFL
Vehicular networks are likely to become the most relevant form of mobile ad hoc
networks (see e.g.
http://ivc.epfl.ch). In this talk, we address
the security of these networks, a topic that has been (surprisingly) overlooked
by the research community. We provide a detailed threat analysis and devise an
appropriate security architecture. We also describe some major design decisions
still to be made, which in some cases have more than mere technical
implications. We provide a set of security protocols; we show that they protect
privacy and we analyze their robustness. We also carry out a quantitative
assessment of the proposed solution. This work has been carried out in
collaboration with Maxim Raya and Imad Aad.
