Project Proposal Project Title: Towards Efficient security in Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks 1. Abstract: With ever increasing on road traffic and dynamic nature of road conditions an intelligent transportation system (ITS) is essential. Vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANETS) takes the responsibility in implementing ITS and is a promising communication scenario for traffic management and safety. VANETs possess unique characteristics like high mobility of nodes, rapid change in the neighbor nodes, stringent deadline for authentication, association times, no fixed infrastructure etc. Though VANETs closely resembles Mobile Ad-hoc Networks traditional security mechanisms are not suitable. This dissertation aims to describe and analyze the most representative VANET security developments and propose an efficient implementation focusing on key exchange and key management aspects, simulating and evaluating the same in OPNET environment.
