Modified Vanstone’s Construction of lightweight MAC for Vehicular On-Board IT Systems

Author: István Vajda

We propose a lightweight construction, a modification of Vanstone’s MAC construction, for the message authentication of the communication between Electronic Control Units (ECUs) in distributed car control systems. The proposed approach can solve the task of error control and authentication in unified algorithmic technology, called MAC (Message Authentication Code) with ECC (Error Correction Code). We follow a provable approach in the design of the cryptographic primitive, where we quantify the security measures in the parameters of the system. Provable security approaches are missing in the field of secure in-vehicle communication.
