A proof-theoretic trust and reputation model for VANET

By G. Primiero, F. Raimondi, T. Chen and R. Nagarajan


Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs) are an important component of intelligent transportation systems, which are set to become part of global transportation infrastructure in the near future. In the context of such networks, security requirements need to rely on a combination of reputation of communicating agents and trust relations over the messaging framework. This is crucial in order to maintain dynamic and safe behaviour under all circumstances. Formal correctness, resolution of contradictions and proven safety of transitive operations in the presence of reputation and trust within the infrastructure remain mostly unexplored issues. This could lead to potentially disastrous situations, putting lives at risk. In this paper we provide a proof-theoretic interpretation of a reputation and trust model for VANET. This allows for formal verification through translation into the Coq proof assistant, and can guarantee consistency of messaging protocols and security of transitive transmissions
