The automobile industry is entering a new era of digitalization with major impact on human mobility and transportation infrastructures. A result of such a convergence between the automobile and information technologies is vehicular ad hoc network (VANET), a type of mobile ad hoc networks that has recently enjoyed a lot of attention from the industry, the research community, lawmakers and privacy activists. In VANET, vehicles frequently broadcast various types of messages, including location data. This enables innovative applications and improvements in safety and driving experience. As messages broadcasted in the VANET are digitally signed and the receiver must be able to verify the senderâs authentication and message integrity, there is a need to ensure broadcast authentication and protect driverâs anonymity.
