Trust Management for Vehicular Cloud Computing

Marcela Roxana Farcasescu


A recent challenge has been raised in the cloud computing world: vehicular cloud computing. Vehiculars will start to use intensively the cloud computing, especially for entertaiment. In a few years all the infotaiment units from our vehicles will have the same operating systems as our tables and phones. All our day-to-day applications will be used also in our vehichles. Still, this confort brings several challenges regarding the privacy of the driver personal data and the vehicle geolocation. This is the reason why trust management represents the key factor for a secure adoption of cloud computing for vehicles.
