- An automated electronic toll collection (AETC) system allows commuters to pay for a toll wirelessly while they are on the move. The type wireless network that facilitates the transactions between engaging parties in the AETC system is vehicular ad-hoc network (or VANET for short). It is clear that the transaction between a vehicle and the AETC must be performed in a secure and accountable manner. A number of payment protocols were developed to secure the AETC system. However, they still lack of necessary security and transaction performance. In this paper, we introduce a micropayment protocol for the AETC system that satisfies necessary transaction security properties. Moreover, our analysis shows that the proposed protocol has lower computation compared to the existing protocols. With the proposed protocol, engaging parties can complete each transaction faster than the existing approaches. This leads to better transaction performance.
