This work proposes authentication based on identity as a way to increase the efficiency and security of communications in vehicular ad-hoc networks. When using identity-based cryptography to achieve certificateless authentication, membership revocation is not a trivial problem. Thus, in order to improve the performance of revocation in such networks, the use of a dynamic authenticated data structure based on perfect k-ary hash trees combined with a duplex version of the new standard SHA-3 is
more &raquo; ... e presented. Efficient algorithms in the used revocation trees allow reaching a refresh rate of at most simple updates per inserted node. Consequently, the proposal is especially useful for situations with frequent revocations, which are foreseeable when vehicular adhoc networks are widely deployed.
