Abstract: In vehicular ad hoc network (VANET), misbehaviors of internal nodes, such as discarding packets, may lead to a rapid decline in packet delivery ratio. To solve this problem, an improvement of greedy perimeter stateless routing (GPSR) protocol is presented. In the new protocol, trustworthiness is considered in the route selection process. The trustworthiness is measured by an objective trust model based on the subjective trust model DyTrust. And the reputation value which reflects the trustworthiness of each node is calculated and broadcasted by the intersection nodes. Specially, besides resisting the packet-discarding behavior of selfish nodes, this protocol also includes a location detection process to resist the location-faking behavior of malicious nodes. As a result, the selfish nodes and the malicious nodes can be excluded from the network. In addition, compared with improved GPSR protocol, the presented one is able to resist one kind of reputation-faking attack and has better performance in simulation.

Key words: trusted routing protocol, reputation model, vehicular ad hoc network (VANET), greedy perimeter stateless routing (GPSR), selfish nodes, malicious nodes
