Three vehicle-to-vehicle communication schemes by
Kounga et al. were recently published
in the IEEE Transactions on Vehicular Technology to address the issues
of certificate management, scalability and privacy.
We present a number of attacks on one of the schemes. Our result shows that,
contrary to what is claimed, this scheme does not provide
the following four security features: authenticity of a message,
privacy of drivers and vehicles, reliability of distributed
information, and revocation of illegitimate vehicles.
