Prevention of DoS Attacks on Inter-Vehicle Communications 2007-01-1714
Inter-vehicle communication (IVC) is the next step in developing a coordinated vehicular transportation system. With today's concerns of security in Internet communications, it is critical that the security in IVC be considered. With its many life-depending implications it is crucial that an IVC system be tolerant of both natural and man-made interference. The goal of our research was to explore solutions to address the issues of security of IVC in spite of its vulnerability to Denial-of- Service (DoS) attacks, in which an attacker systematically or selectively jams the signals exchanged by the vehicles. We present proposed solutions to DoS attacks on IVC, as well as introduce additional concepts and ideas that help address this important problem.
