The current architecture for VANET related services relies on a Client-Server approach and leads to numerous drawbacks, such as network congestion due to the bottleneck problem or, more importantly, data privacy concerns. Indeed, because of the network topology, traffic must go through nodes which limit the bandwidth and thus bound the overall network capacity. Finally, user data is collected and stored in servers, used by third party services. However, these providers are known to treat lightly user privacy by selling or using the data for their own purposes (Beresford and Stajano, 2004). By use of a decentralized and distributed communication protocol (i.e. D2D), one can overcome these problems by spreading the communication burden to all nodes in the mesh. By means of cryptographic techniques, we can ensure that the shared data is secured and controlled at the end-user side. This paper presents a study and proposes a proof of concept of a decentralized and distributed information system by means of a dynamic navigation system for VANET, using a low-cost solution such as Wifi or LTE-direct new 3GPPP protocol. This system preserves user privacy and is augmented with forensics capabilities.
