Abstract

We propose a peripheral authentication scheme for autonomous vehicles. A mutual authentication protocol is required to secure every peripheral device access to a vehicle. Specifically, we present a vehicle to peripheral device authentication scheme. In addition, our three way handshake scheme for vehicle to keyfob authentication scheme based on generalized peripheral authentication scheme has been proposed. The vehicle to keyfob authentication scheme is adapted and improved with an additional attribute verification of the keyfob holder. Conventionally, vehicle to keyfob authentication is realized through a challenge-response verification protocol. An authentic coupling between the vehicle identity and the keyfob avoids any illegal access to the vehicle. However, these authentication messages can be relayed by an active adversary, thereby, can amplify the actual distance between the authentic vehicle and the keyfob. Eventually, through this malicious relaying an adversary can possibly get access to the vehicle, without any effort to generate or decode the crypto credentials. Our solution is a two party, three way handshake scheme with proactive and reactive commitment verification. Conceptually, our solution is different than the distance bounding protocols that requires multiple rounds of round trip delay measurement.
