— In this paper, we introduce an efficient conditional privacy preservation (ECPP) protocol in vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) to address the issue on anonymous authentication for safety messages with authority traceability. The proposed protocol is characterized by the generation of on-the-fly short-time anonymous keys between On-Board Units (OBUs) and(More)
—Delay-tolerant networks (DTNs) provide a promising solution to support wide-ranging applications in the regions where end-to-end network connectivity is not available. In DTNs, the intermediate nodes on a communication path are expected to store, carry, and forward the in-transit messages (or bundles) in an opportunistic way, which is called opportunistic(More)
—Delay Tolerant Networks (DTNs) are a class of networks characterized by lack of guaranteed connectivity, typically low frequency of encounters between DTN nodes and long propagation delays within the network. As a result, the message propagation process in DTNs follows a store-carry-and-forward manner, and the in-transit bundle messages can be(More)
— Privacy threat is one of the critical issues in network coding, where attacks such as traffic analysis can be easily launched by a malicious adversary once enough encoded packets are collected. Furthermore, the encoding/mixing nature of network coding precludes the feasibility of employing the existing privacy-preserving techniques, such as Onion Routing,(More)
—Cognitive Radio Network (CRN) is regarded as a promising way to address the increasing demand for wireless channel resources. It solves the channel resource shortage problem by allowing a Secondary User (SU) to access the channel of a Primary User (PU) when the channel is not occupied by the PU. The latest FCC's rule in May 2012 enforces database-driven(More)
— Searching for a vacant parking space in a congested area or a large parking lot and preventing auto theft are major concerns to our daily lives. In this paper, we propose a new smart parking scheme for large parking lots through vehicular communication. The proposed scheme can provide the drivers with real-time parking navigation service, intelligent(More)
—Wireless metropolitan area sharing networks (WMSNs) are wide-area wireless networks with nodes owned and managed by independent wireless Internet service providers (WISPs). To support seamless roaming in emerging WMSNs, in this paper, we propose a localized and distributed authentication and billing architecture that aims at enabling efficient and(More)
