Vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANETs) have a great potential to improve road safety, traffic jams, fuel consumption, and to increase passenger convenience in vehicles. However, VANETs use an open medium for communication and, therefore, are exposed to security threats that influence their reliability. We propose a data-trust security model designed for VANETs based on social network theories. Drivers receiving data about traffic congestion or safety warnings can use the model to evaluate the trust… CONTINUE READING
