Abstract

Transportation-based Cyber-Physical Systems (TCPS), also known as Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), have been introduced to increase traffic efficiency and safety. To reduce traffic congestion and traveling time, a number of real-time route guidance schemes have been developed to assist travelers in determining the optimal route for their transit. In this paper, we address the vulnerability issue of the route guiding process and study data integrity attacks against route guidance schemes. To be specific, we consider a generic attack, in which the adversary may compromise vehicles via wireless communication networks and then manipulate the real-time traffic information generated or forwarded by these vehicles, and finally broadcast the forged real-time traffic information into vehicular networks. We formally model the attack and quantitatively analyze its impact on the effectiveness of route guidance schemes. Our findings show that the investigated data integrity attack can effectively disrupt route guidance, resulting in significant traffic congestion, the increase of travel time, and the imbalanced use of transportation resources.
