Privacy and security have become an indispensable matter of attention in the intelligent transportation systems, which is vulnerable to many security threats these days. Today's Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) fore. Vehicular Ad-hoc NETworks (VANETs) are the most prominent enabling network technology. One of them is the Denial of Service (DoS) attacks, where a malicious node forges a large number of fake identities, i.e. Internet Protocol (IP) addresses in order to disrupt the proper functioning of fair data transfer between two fast-moving vehicles.
