An Immediate Authentication Protocol for Exchanging Safety Messages in Heterogeneous VANET
Abstract— Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs) improves road safeties and user experiences through
Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) communications in heterogeneous networks. Punctuality and protection on safety
messages are critical as misuses of safety messages may result in deadly accidents roads. This study is geared
toward to improving efficiency of safety messages by minimizing delays for prompt alerts for critical events
on roads. Furthermore, integration of safety messages is confirmed by a specially designed authentication
mechanism. Authenticating messages with symmetric cryptography enhances computational delays in the
first hand. A pre-authenticated messages with a tight scheduling further reduces transfer delays. Especially, it
is proposed the way to provide the authentication immediately for the case of event-triggered message
because the kind of it is limited. And broadcasting messages among nearby vehicles in the 802.11p network
are replaced multicasting among selected vehicles in the LTE network. In this way, secrecy in the VANET is
fortified by message authentication.
