Privacy, security, and reliability are key requirements in deploying vehicular ad-hoc networks (VANET). Without those the VANET technology won’t be suitable for market diffusion. In this chapter, the authors are concerned with how to fulfill these requirements by using pseudonym-based authentication, designing security schemes that don’t endanger transport safety while maintaining low overhead. At the same time our design improves the system usability by allowing nodes to self-generate their own pseudonyms.
