Keywords: Autonomous Vehicles, 5G, Internet of Vehicles, Security attacks, Security solutions, Blockchain
Abstract. An autonomous vehicle is designed to move partially or totally without the intervention of the driver. It is a system equipped with sensors, communication and processing units that make it able to monitor and analyse traffic information in real time to improve road safety. In addition, Internet of Vehicles is the latest technology dedicated to autonomous vehicles, the integration of this technology with 5G serves as a platform to interconnect sensors, vehicles, infrastructure, pedestrian, and network. Hence, the 5G Internet of Vehicles environment provides significant benefits, including increased security, high reliability, wide communication coverage and low service latency. On the other hand, due to the ubiquity of network connectivity, it also presents serious confidentiality, integrity, and availability issues for autonomous vehicles. This paper provides an overview of the autonomous vehicle concept by highlighting its technologies and the 5G IoV environment, presenting some susceptible attacks that can touch the security of this environment, and some good practices to ensure the autonomous vehicle security.
