IoVCom: Reliable Comprehensive Communication System for the Internet of Vehicles

IoVCom: Reliable Comprehensive Communication System for Internet of Vehicles

By 2020, around 25 billion “things” will be connected to the Internet for a better society using different technological systems. Vehicle users have better experience by collaborating the Internet of Things (IoT) and vehicular ad-hoc network (VANET) architectures, and this emerging field is called the Internet of vehicles (IoV). Therefore, the IoV architecture (See Figure 1 and Figure 2)) will play an important role in the industry, research organization, and academics for various public and commercial applications. However, the IoV structure should ensure secure and efficient performance for vehicular communications, else an attacker may interfere in the system.

We have proposed novel comprehensive data transmission protocols with the following key features.

  • Design a dependable system with five communications (V2S, V2V, V2I, V2M, and V2R) using one-way hash and elliptic curve operations to achieve mutual authentication between IoV entities (vehicle, RSU, mobile device, wireless sensor, and infrastructure).
  • Resists various security attacks, e.g., Sybil, collision induction, modification, illusion, impersonation, replay, password guessing, man-in-the-middle, and plain-text.
  • Attains better results in different performance measures such as execution time, energy consumption, storage cost, and communication overhead.

Hence, the proposed communication system can be mounted easily for the IoV architecture effectively. The central focus of the paper is to have a secure and effective communication from a vehicle to all IoV components around the world using advanced technology.
