A Location Privacy Preserving Authentication Scheme in Vehicular Networks
Abstract—As an emerging application scenario of wireless technologies, vehicular communications have been initiated not only for enhancing the transportation safety and driving experiences, but also for a new commercial market of on-board Internet services. Due to extraordinarily high mobility of vehicles in a vehicular network, frequent handover requests will be a norm, which initiates the demand for an effective and fast authentication scheme that can maintain the service continuity in presence of the frequent handover events. However, previously reported authentication schemes, although with minimized handover latency and packet loss rate, may disclose the location information of the mobile user to the third party, which will seriously violate the location privacy of the user. In this paper, we propose a location privacy preserving authentication scheme based on blind signature in the elliptic curve domain. The scheme cannot only provide fast authentication, but also guarantee the...
