Abstract

Today, the rapid growth of vehicles connected to the Internet enables provides various services to consumers, including traffic management, traffic safety, and entertainment. Vehicular Ad-Hoc Network (VANET) is one of the most prominent and emerging technologies on the Internet of Vehicular Things (IoVT). This technology offers to fulfill requirements such as robust information exchange, and infotainment among vehicles for the smart city environment. Still, it has some challenges such as centralization, storage, security, and privacy because all city vehicular networks send vehicles and road-related information data directly to the cloud. This article proposes BIIoVT: Blockchain-based Secure Storage Architecture for Intelligent Internet of Vehicular Things (IIVoT) to mitigate the above-mention issues. Blockchain provides security and privacy at each city's vehicular networks and decentralized storage at the cloud layer with a Distributed Hash Table (DHT). It also examines how the vehicular network offers a secure platform. The validation results of the proposed architecture show an outstanding balance of secure storage and efficiency for the IoVT compared to existing methods.
