Performance and scalability assessment for non-certificate-based public key management in VANETS
Shen, Pei Yuan, Tang, Maolin, Liu, Vicky, & Caelli, William (2012) Performance and scalability assessment for non-certificate-based public key management in VANETS. International Journal of Information Security and Privacy, 6(1), pp. 33-56.
Current research in secure messaging for Vehicular Ad hoc Networks (VANETs) appears to focus on employing a digital certificate-based Public Key Cryptosystem (PKC) to support security. The security overhead of such a scheme, however, creates a transmission delay and introduces a time-consuming verification process to VANET communications. This paper proposes a non-certificate-based public key management for VANETs. A comprehensive evaluation of performance and scalability of the proposed public key management regime is presented, which is compared to a certificate-based PKC by employing a number of quantified analyses and simulations. Not only does this paper demonstrate that the proposal can maintain security, but it also asserts that it can improve overall performance and scalability at a lower cost, compared to the certificate-based PKC. It is believed that the proposed scheme will add a new dimension to the key management and verification services for VANETs.
