Over the past few years, because of the popularity of the Internet of vehicles and cloud computing, the exchange of group information between vehicles is no longer out of reach. Through WiFi/5G wireless communication protocol, vehicles can instantly deliver traffic conditions and accidents to the back end or group vehicles traveling together, which can reduce traffic congestion and accidents. In addition, vehicles transmit real-time road conditions to the cloud vehicle management center, which can also share real-time road conditions and improve the road efficiency for pedestrians and drivers. However, the transmission of information in an open environment raises the issue of personal information security. Most of the security mechanisms provided by the existing Internet of vehicles require centralized authentication servers, which increase the burden of certificate management and computing. Moreover, the road side unit as a decentralized authentication center may be open to hacking or modification, but due to personal privacy and security concerns, vehicle-to-vehicle is not willing to share information with each other. Therefore, this study is conducted through blockchain to ensure the security of vehicle-based information transmission. Moreover, the elliptic curve DiffieHellman (ECDH) key exchange protocol and a secure conference key mechanism with direct user confirmation combined with the back-end cloud platform Map/Reduce is proposed to ensure the identities of Mappers and Reducers that participate in the cloud operation, avoid malicious participants to modify the transmission information, so as to achieve secure Map/Reduce operations, and improves vehicle and passenger traffic safety.
