Sihem Baccari, Mohamed Hadded, Haifa Touati, Paul Muhlethaler

VANETs aim to reduce the number of road accident victims and congestion problems while improving the quality of driving. The absence of a central control can make such a network vulnerable to various attacks, both from the outside and from the interior. In this article, a trust-based model is proposal in which each node establishes a trust relationship with its neighbors based on their behaviors during the channel access and packet forwarding process.
