Data Centric Rogue Node Detection in VANETs

Zaidi, K., Milojevic, M., Rakocevic, V. & Rajarajan, M. (2014). Data Centric Rogue Node Detection in VANETs. Paper presented at the IEEE Trustcom, 24-09-2014 - 26-09-2014, Beijing, China.


Vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) are the future of vehicular technology and Traffic Information Systems. In VANETs vehicles communicate by different types of beacon messages to inform each other of their position and speed to give them a sense of traffic around them. Vehicles can also send emergency messages in case of accidents or other hazards. The very fast moving nodes have to act quickly based on these emergency messages. However, a rogue node which sends false emergency messages can wreak havoc in the network that may even result in fatalities. This paper develops and simulates a technique to detect a rogue node that is sending false emergency messages in VANETs by cooperative exchange of data without the need of any infrastructure or revocation list. Also, the proposed mechanism will make VANETs fault tolerant and resilient against injection of false data.
