Vehicular adhoc networks allow vehicles to share their information for safety and traffic efficiency. However, sharing information may threaten the driver privacy because it includes spatiotemporal information and is broadcast publicly and periodically. In this paper, we propose a context-adaptive pseudonym changing scheme which lets a vehicle decide autonomously when to change its pseudonym and how long it should remain silent to ensure unlinkability. This scheme adapts dynamically based on… Expand
MPFSLP: Masqueraded Probabilistic Flooding for Source-Location Privacy in VANETs
TLDR
A scheme that provides non-repudiation, message authentication, integrity, and non-traceability (or source location privacy) while maintaining low overhead in communication to support the security requirements for the beaconing mechanism is built. Expand
Location privacy scheme for VANETs
TLDR
This paper proposes an efficient pseudonym changing strategy to provide location privacy in VANETs, and describes a novel tracking attack, that is, the cheating attack, and develops a cheating detection mechanism. Expand
A Survey on Pseudonym Changing Strategies for Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks
TLDR
A comprehensive survey and classification of pseudonym changing strategies for VANETs is presented and some current researches, and open issues are highlighted and compared with respect to some relevant criteria. Expand
Virtual Pseudonym-Changing and Dynamic Grouping Policy for Privacy Preservation in VANETs
TLDR
The proposed Dynamic Grouping and Virtual Pseudonym-Changing (DGVP) scheme for vehicle location privacy improves the anonymity set size and entropy, provides lower traceability, reduces impact on vehicular network applications, and has lower computation cost compared to existing research work.

  • 2017
TLDR
Six state-of-the-art VANET privacy schemes are evaluated and compared and it was found that the coordinated silent period scheme achieves the best privacy and QoS levels, but fully synchronized silence among all vehicles is a practical challenge. Expand
Transmission Range Adjustment Influence on Location Privacy-Preserving Schemes in VANETs
TLDR
This is the first evaluation of transmission adjustment influence on the achieved location privacy in VANETs, and an evaluation of this feature's performances after integrating it into some of the well-known strategies, namely: SLOW and CAPS is made. Expand
WHISPER: A Location Privacy-Preserving Scheme Using Transmission Range Changing for Internet of Vehicles
TLDR
This paper proposes WHISPER, a safety-aware location privacy-preserving scheme that adjusts the transmission range of vehicles in order to prevent continuous location monitoring, and details the set of protocols used, then compares it against other privacy- Preserving schemes. Expand

TLDR
A location privacy extension, PREXT, for Veins framework is proposed, which supports seven privacy schemes of different approaches including silent period, context-based and cryptographic mix-zone, and is utilized to compare among different schemes in an urban scenario. Expand
Transmission Range Changing Effects on Location Privacy-Preserving Schemes in the Internet of Vehicles
TLDR
The authors investigate the effects of changing the transmission range while sending beacons on the achieved level of location privacy based on two location privacy schemes: SLOW and CAPS and confirm the feasibility of using such a mechanism. Expand
Study of the impact of pseudonym change mechanisms on vehicular safety
TLDR
This study shows that existing pseudonym change mechanism generate a gap between the real vehicular neighborhood view and the one obtained when using pseudonym change mechanisms, and that pseudonym change may impact the anticipation of dangerous situation which highly degrades road safety. Expand

TLDR
This thesis considers how to protect vehicles from being tracked while they are sharing sensitive information in beacons and proposes two solutions, one to send the precise information only every period of time while sending inaccurate beacons in between and one to use secure group communication to prevent attacker from overhearing broadcast information.

SLOW: A Practical pseudonym changing scheme for location privacy in VANETs
TLDR
This work argues that the risk of a fatal accident at a slow speed is low, and therefore, the scheme does not seriously impact safety-of-life, and relieves vehicles of the burden of verifying a potentially large amount of digital signatures, and thus, makes it possible to implement vehicle communications with less expensive equipments.
