Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems allow connected vehicles to communicate with each other, with the road-side infrastructure, and with other smart devices to improve road safety and optimize traffic efficiency. They allow to develop new services to prepare future semi-automated or fully automated vehicles.
Applications are based on the exchange of V2X beacons broadcast by stations and received by neighboring vehicles. The beacons contain alerts and/or kinematic information of the originating station.

The functionality of the services and the safety of their operation depend on the correctness of the communication between stations. In this talk we explore the characteristics of the vehicular network and the measures that can be taken to secure the communication within the C-ITS.
