In vehicular ad hoc networks (VANET), in order to preserve the real identity of message sender from attackers, message authenticity and integrity verification should be performed swiftly. Reducing the computations and communication overhead is highly needed. The proposed protocol focuses on reducing the computation required for the road side communication V2I without affecting the security level. The proposed low computational protocol generates and exchanges symmetric key in the public channel…
