Due to the low latency and high speed of 5G networks, the Internet of Vehicles (IoV) under the 5G network has been rapidly developed and has broad application prospects. The Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) committee has taken remote diagnosis as one of the development cores of IoV. However, how to ensure the security of remote diagnosis and maintenance services is also a key point to ensure vehicle safety, which is directly related to the safety of vehicle passengers. In this paper, we propose a secure and efficient authentication scheme based on extended chebyshev chaotic maps for remote diagnosis and maintenance in IoVs. In the proposed scheme, to provide strong security, anyone, such as the vehicle owner or the employee of the Vehicle Service Centre (VSC), must enter the valid biometrics and password in order to enjoy or provide remote diagnosis and maintenance services, and the vehicle and the VSC should authenticate each other to ensure that they are legitimate. The security analysis and performance evaluation results show that the proposed scheme can provide robust security with ideal efficiency.

In the field of network traffic analysis, Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology is widely used at present. However, the increase in network traffic has brought tremendous processing pressure on the DPI. Consequently, detection speed has become the bottleneck of the entire application. In order to speed up the traffic detection of DPI, a lot of research works have been applied to improve signature matching algorithms, which is the most influential factor in DPI performance. In this paper, we present a novel method from a different angle called Precisely Guided Signature Matching (PGSM). Instead of matching packets with signature directly, we use supervised learning to automate the rules of specific protocol in PGSM. By testing the performance of a packet in the rules, the target packet could be decided when and which signatures should be matched with. Thus, the PGSM method reduces the number of aimless matches which are useless and numerous. After proposing PGSM, we build a framework called PGSM-DPI to verify the effectiveness of guidance rules. The PGSM-DPI framework consists of PGSM method and open source DPI library. The framework is running on a distributed platform with better throughput and computational performance. Finally, the experimental results demonstrate that our PGSM-DPI can reduce 59.23% original DPI time and increase 21.31% throughput. Besides, all source codes and experimental results can be accessed on our GitHub.

Ma, Mingxin, Yang, Xiaotong, Shi, Guozhen, Li, Fenghua.  2019.  Enhanced Blockchain Based Key Management Scheme against Key Exposure Attack. Proceedings of the International Conference on Artificial Intelligence, Information Processing and Cloud Computing. :1–6.

The data collected by IoT devices is of great value, which makes people urgently need a secure device key management strategy to protect their data. Existing works introduce the blockchain technology to transfer the responsibility of key management from the trusted center in the traditional key management strategy to the devices, thus eliminating the trust crisis caused by excessive dependence on third parties. However, the lightweight implementation of IoT devices limits the ability to resist side channel attacks, causing the private key to be exposed and subject to masquerading attacks. Accordingly, we strengthen the original blockchain based key management scheme to defend against key exposure attack. On the one hand, we introduce two hash functions to bind transactions in the blockchain to legitimate users. On the other hand, we design a secure key exchange protocol for identifying and exchanging access keys between legitimate users. Security analysis and performance show that the proposed scheme improves the robustness of the network with small storage and communication overhead increments.

The future fifth-generation (5G) mobile communications system has already become a focus around the world. A large number of late-model services and applications including high definition visual communication, internet of vehicles, multimedia interaction, mobile industry automation, and etc, will be added to 5G network platform in the future. Different application services have different security requirements. However, the current user authentication for services and applications: Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) suggested by the 3GPP committee, is only a unitary authentication model, which is unable to meet the diversified security requirements of differentiated services. In this paper, we present a new diversified identity management as well as a flexible and composable three-factor authentication mechanism for different applications in 5G multi-service systems. The proposed scheme can provide four identity authentication methods for different security levels by easily splitting or assembling the proposed three-factor authentication mechanism. Without a design of several different authentication protocols, our proposed scheme can improve the efficiency, service of quality and reduce the complexity of the entire 5G multi-service system. Performance analysis results show that our proposed scheme can ensure the security with ideal efficiency.
