Host Based Intrusion Detection for VANETs: A statistical approach to Rogue Node Detection

Rajarajan, M., Zaidi, K., Nallanathan, A, , Rakocevic, V. & Milojevic, M, (2016). Host Based Intrusion Detection for VANETs: A statistical approach to Rogue Node Detection. IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology, 65(8), pp. 6703-6714. doi: 10.1109/tvt.2015.2480244


In this paper, an intrusion detection system (IDS) for vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) is proposed and evaluated. The IDS is evaluated by simulation in the presence of rogue nodes (RNs) that can launch different attacks. The proposed IDS is capable of detecting a false information attack using statistical techniques effectively and can also detect other types of attacks. First, the theory and implementation of the VANET model that is used to train the IDS is discussed. Then, an extensive simulation and analysis of our model under different traffic conditions is conducted to identify the effects of these parameters in VANETs. In addition, the extensive data gathered in the simulations are presented using graphical and statistical techniques. Moreover, RNs are introduced in the network, and an algorithm is presented to detect these RNs. Finally, we evaluate our system and observe that the proposed application-layer IDS based on a cooperative information exchange mechanism is better for dynamic and fast-moving networks such as VANETs, as compared with other techniques available.
