Abstract

Vehicle platooning is defined as multiple vehicles driving in a string and maintaining a pre-specified distance to each other. Vehicular platoon implementation results in improvement of safety via eliminating chances of human errors, increase in highway capacity by maintaining small spacings, and enhancement of driving comfort and efficiency. While platooning deployment might be of interest to many organizations and individuals due to its undeniable advantages, the safety of the vehicle passengers can be at risk by one(multiple) attacker(s). Hence, we should take into consideration potential security risks to platooning. In this brief, we describe how multiple attackers can create catastrophic impacts on the platoon in collaboration with each other. In literature, there are instances of attacks that attackers act independently. They alter the control configuration solely based on their prior knowledge of the platooning configuration and not relying on other attacker’s information. We propose a systematic method that illustrates how two attackers can change their control configuration in tandem with each other in order to create a successful attack. In our proposed scheme, one attacker modifies its controller setup following the changes the other attacker initiated. Finally, we demonstrate the impact of the designed collaborative attack on the vehicular platoon.

Vehicle platooning is defined as multiple vehicles driving in a string and maintaining a pre-specified distance to each other. Vehicular platoon implementation results in improvement of safety via eliminating chances of human errors, increase in highway capacity by maintaining small spacings, and enhancement of driving comfort and efficiency. While platooning deployment might be of interest to many organizations and individuals due to its undeniable advantages, the safety of the vehicle passengers can be at risk by one(multiple) attacker(s). Hence, we should take into consideration potential security risks to platooning. In this brief, we describe how multiple attackers can create catastrophic impacts on the platoon in collaboration with each other. In literature, there are instances of attacks that attackers act independently.
