Modern vehicles are no longer mere mechanical devices; they comprise dozens of digital computing platforms, coordinated by an in-vehicle network, and have the potential to significantly enhance the digital life of individuals on the road. While this transformation has driven major advancements in road safety and transportation efficiency, significant work remains to be done to support the security and privacy requirements of the envisioned ecosystem of commercial services and applications

In the era when "service is everything and everything is a service", Vehicular Communication (VC) systems cannot escape from this ongoing trend towards multi-service environments accessible from anywhere. To meet the diverse requirements of vehicle operators and Service Providers (SPs), we present SEROSA, a service-oriented security and privacy-preserving architecture for VC. By synthesizing existing VC standards and Web Services (WS), our architecture provides comprehensive identity and service management while ensuring interoperability with existing SPs. We fully implement our system and extensively assess its efficiency, practicality, and dependability. Overall, SEROSA significantly extends the state of the art and serves as a catalyst for the integration of vehicles into the vast domain of Internet-based services.
