In future traffic systems, vehicles as well as the infrastructure are supposed to communicate with each other. This communication contains warnings about red traffic lights, position updates of other vehicles, or dynamic sheduling at crossroads.
To do so, all participants need a unique identifier so others know who send a message and to address participants directly. However, a simple solution for this problem with static identifiers is far from ideal for privacy protection. From a privacy standpoint, using many short lived pseudonyms are preferable. This avoids that a single participant can be tracked for a longer time, or can be recognized again when coming back to a crossroad later on. At the same time, discovering the real identity of a participant must be possible in cases of emergencies.
No concrete thesis is currently available, but a suitable topic might be found in discussion. Thesis to other research topics of mine might be supervised as well.
