Development of Internet of Vehicles (IoV) has aroused extensive attention in recent years. The IoV requires an efficient communication mode when the application scenarios are complicated. To reduce the verifying time and cut the length of signature, certificateless aggregate signature (CL-AS) is used to achieve improved performance in resource-constrained environments like vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs), which is able to make it effective in environments constrained by bandwidth and

In addition, most of the proposed schemes tend to be easy to attack by signers or malicious entities which can be called coalition attack. In this paper, we present an improved certificateless-based authentication and aggregate signature scheme, which can properly solve the coalition attack. Moreover, the proposed scheme not only uses pseudonyms in communications to prevent vehicles from revealing their identity but also achieves considerable efficiency compared with state-of-the-art work, certificateless signature (CLS), and CL-AS schemes. Furthermore, it demonstrates that when focused on the existential forgery on adaptive chosen message attack and coalition attack, the proposed schemes can be proved secure. Also, we show that our scheme exceeds existing certification schemes in both computing and communication costs.
