Vehicular Ad-hoc NETwork (VANET) is a vital transportation technology that facilitates the vehicles to share sensitive information (such as steep-curve warnings and black ice on the road) with each other and with the surrounding infrastructure in real-time to avoid accidents and enable comfortable driving experience.To achieve these goals, VANET requires a secure environment for authentic, reliable and trusted information dissemination among the network entities. However, VANET is prone to different attacks resulting in the dissemination of compromised/false information among network nodes. One way to manage a secure and trusted network is to introduce trust among the vehicular nodes. To this end, various Trust Models (TMs) are developed for VANET and can be broadly categorized into three classes, Entity-oriented Trust Models (ETM), Data oriented Trust Models (DTM) and Hybrid Trust Models (HTM). These TMs evaluate trust based on the received information (data), the vehicle (entity) or both through different mechanisms. In this paper, we present a comparative study of the three TMs. Furthermore, we evaluate these TMs against the different trust, security and quality-of-service related benchmarks. Simulation results revealed that all these TMs have deficiencies in terms of end-to-end delays, event detection probabilities and false positive rates. This study can be used as a guideline for researchers to design new efficient and effective TMs for VANET.

With the outgrowth of video editing tools, video information trustworthiness becomes a hypersensitive field. Today many devices have the capability of capturing digital videos such as CCTV, digital cameras and mobile phones and these videos may transmitted over the Internet or any other non secure channel. As digital video can be used to as supporting evidence, it has to be protected against manipulation or tampering. As most video authentication techniques are based on watermarking and digital signatures, these techniques are effectively used in copyright purposes but difficult to implement in other cases such as video surveillance or in videos captured by consumer's cameras. In this paper we propose an intelligent technique for video authentication which uses the video local information which makes it useful for real world applications. The proposed algorithm relies on the video's statistical local information which was applied on a dataset of videos captured by a range of consumer video cameras. The results show that the proposed algorithm has potential to be a reliable intelligent technique in digital video authentication without the need to use for SVM classifier which makes it faster and less computationally expensive in comparing with other intelligent techniques.
