Fault-tolerant Security Mechanisms for Aggregation in Vehicular Networks

Vehicle-to-vehicle networks enable a multiude of new applications to make driving safer, more efficient, and convenient. The large number of potential applications in combination with the bandwidth restricted wireless communication channel many applications will need to aggregate information and disseminate those aggregates rather than single messages. This communication pattern introduces security issues because the original sender cannot be determined unambiguously anymore. Several security mechanisms were developed in this thesis to secure aggregation protocols.
