Tut6: Security and Privacy for V2X Communications

Virtual Program Link:

Instructor: Yi Qian, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Abstract: In recent years, vehicular networks have been considered as a promising solution to achieve better traffic management and to improve driving experience of a driver. Vehicular networks can provide many services to facilitate road safety for vehicles and traffic management, e.g. on-road traffic information exchange and location based services. Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) are specifically designed for vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications in vehicular networks , and recently the cellular network has shown great potential to support vehicular networks with better performance and more applications. Due to the wireless nature of V2X communications, how to secure V2X communications and guarantee privacy of users are great challenges which hampered the implementation of vehicular networks. Many solutions have been proposed by researchers in last two decades. In this tutorial, we present a comprehensive survey on the state-of-the-art solutions concerning security and privacy for V2X communications. For security, detailed discussions on cryptography based schemes and trust based schemes are provided. For privacy, we summarize and compare general solutions in preserving identity privacy and location privacy. As another candidate for vehicular networks , cellular based V2X communications have shown many advantages over DSRC, and the oncoming fifth generation cellular technology are going to provide more possibilities to vehicular networks . Thus, security architectures and solutions for cellular based communications are also illustrated and discussed. Finally, we summarize the remaining challenges and point out future research directions.
