Research Area:  Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks
An announcement scheme is a system that facilitates vehicles tobroadcast road-related information in vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs)in order to improve road safety and eﬃciency. Here we propose a newcryptographic primitive for public updating of reputation score basedon the Boneh-Boyen-Shacham short group signature scheme. This al-lows private reputation score retrieval without a secure channel. Usingthis we devise a privacy-aware announcement scheme using reputationsystems which is reliable, auditable and robust.
