An Anonymous Geocast Scheme for ITS Applications

  title={An Anonymous Geocast Scheme for ITS Applications},
  author={Carsten B{\"u}ttner and Sorin A. Huss},
We propose a novel anonymous geocast scheme for Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) applications. The main advantage of this scheme is that it allows an ITS Central Station (ICS) located in the Internet to send messages to all ITS Vehicle Stations (IVSs) subscribed to a specific ITS application and located in a certain geographic area. Thus, the messages are only distributed in the specified geographic area and not in a greater region. Furthermore, it preserves in comparison to the state of…

An Efficient Approach to Anonymous Distribution of ITS Messages in Geographic Areas via LTE and IRS Networks
This work presents a novel approach which allows an ITS Central Station, located in the Internet, to efficiently distribute information to all IVSs exploiting a specific application and located in a certain geographic area.
Efficient Secure Communication in VANETs under the Presence of new Requirements Emerging from Advanced Attacks
A set of extra requirements for realization of security systems for vehicular ad-hoc networks is determined and approaches for extending European and US systems being currently standardized are proposed and evaluated, which make such systems conform to the newly identified requirements.

A survey on geocast routing protocols is presented and a classification of geocasting protocols is proposed based on whether they are based on flooding, directed flooding or on routing without flooding andWhether they are suitable for ad hoc networks or for infrastructure networks.
