In recent years, growing research interest from both industry and academia has been aroused to the vehicular networks, which is regarded as the fundamental component of the modern intelligent transportation system (ITS). Lots of remarkable research outputs with respect to secure vehicular data interactions and user privacy preservation has been witnessed. However, the existing schemes all focus on the common vehicular communication scenarios where facilities are deployed, whereas the secure data exchange in the abnormal infrastructure-less vehicular environment has not been properly investigated. To deal with unpredictable abnormal situations caused by artificial or natural disasters such as earthquakes and floods, a distinctive vehicle-assisted aggregate authentication mechanism for infrastructure-less vehicular networks is presented in this paper. With assistance from the neighboring vehicles, the homomorphic signature involving all requesting vehicles is generated and forwarded to the remaining functional RSUs. Meanwhile, vehicular group communication among the validated entities is enabled. Additionally, the fault-tolerant verification method is adopted such that the ineffective entities can be easily distinguished and removed without interfering with other requesting vehicles. The security proofs and discussions regarding vital security properties are presented, while the performance analysis follows. Compared with the state-of-the-art, advantages in terms of security and performance properties can be proved.
