AbstractThe Internet of Vehicles (IoV) is a network that considers vehicles as intelligent machines. They interact and communicate with each other to improve the performance and safety of traffic. IoV solves certain problems, but it has some issues such as response time, which prompted researchers to propose the integration of Fog Computing into vehicular networks. In Vehicular Fog Computing (VFC), the services are provided at the edge of the network to increase data rate and reduce response time. However, in order to satisfy network users, the security and privacy of sensitive data should be guaranteed. Using pseudonyms instead of real identities is one of the techniques considered to preserve the privacy of users, however, this can push malicious vehicles to exploit such a process and launch the Sybil attack by creating several pseudonyms in order to perform various malicious activities. In this paper, we describe the Sybil attack effects on VFC networks and compare them to those in conventional networks, as well as identify the various existing methods for detecting this attack and determine if they are applicable to VFC networks.
