The potential weaknesses of the intervehicle communication (IVC) networks are discussed. A security architecture called SecCar that offers an approach to deal with these weaknesses is under development. The IVC rely on ordinary nodes for routing and network management, spreading the intelligence and infrastruture throughout the network in the vehicles themselves. The nodes are organized into a virtual network infrastructure, in which a portion of the nodes form a hierarchical infrastructure that adapts to nodal movement to provide security and scalability for the IVC networks.
