Simulating Malicious Attacks on VANETs for Connected and Autonomous Vehicle Cybersecurity: A Machine Learning Dataset

15 Feb 2022  ·  Safras Iqbal, Peter Ball, Muhammad H Kamarudin, Andrew Bradley ·

Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) rely on Vehicular Adhoc Networks with wireless communication between vehicles and roadside infrastructure to support safe operation. However, cybersecurity attacks pose a threat to VANETs and the safe operation of CAVs. This study proposes the use of simulation for modelling typical communication scenarios which may be subject to malicious attacks. The Eclipse MOSAIC simulation framework is used to model two typical road scenarios, including messaging between the vehicles and infrastructure - and both replay and bogus information cybersecurity attacks are introduced. The model demonstrates the impact of these attacks, and provides an open dataset to inform the development of machine learning algorithms to provide anomaly detection and mitigation solutions for enhancing secure communications and safe deployment of CAVs on the road.
