In this paper, we propose an efficient distributed-certificate-service (DCS) scheme for vehicular networks. The proposed scheme offers flexible interoperability for certificate service in heterogeneous administrative authorities and an efficient way for any onboard units (OBUs) to update its certificate from the available infrastructure roadside units (RSUs) in a timely manner. In addition, the DCS scheme introduces an aggregate batch-verification technique for authenticating certificate-based signatures, which significantly decreases the verification overhead. Security analysis and performance evaluation demonstrate that the DCS scheme can reduce the complexity of certificate management and achieve excellent security and efficiency for vehicular communications.
