abstract: Esta dissertação descreve um estudo de viabilidade para a implementação de um software do tipo pote-de-mel (honeypot) para comunicações veículares Ad-Hoc sem fios baseadas no protocolo WAVE (Wireless Access in Vehicular Environment). Um honeypot é uma ferramenta desenhada para simular falsas redes de computadores, monitorá-los, e capturar todos os eventuais comportamentos maliciosos tais como ataques e tentativas de intrusão. O estudo da solução proposta começa com uma pesquisa de trabalho relacionado e com o estudo dos fundamentos e protocolos das comunicações veículares sem fios, nomeadamente os protocolos IEEE 802.11p e IEEE 1609.2. De seguida é feito um levantamento dos principais problemas de segurança no âmbito das comunicações veículares sem fios e procede-se a uma descrição detalhada da tecnologia de honeypots e é escolhida uma ferramente que irá ser alvo de particular atenção ao longo desta dissertação, o HONEYD. Finalmente, e dado que esta dissertação tem um caracter iminententemente teórico, são descritas as modificações que serão necessárias para adaptar o HONEYD para comunicações veículares sem fios. Isto para o caso de comunicações veículo a veículo, onde é descrita a integração do HONEYD na unidade de bordo (OBU) e para o caso de ce comunicações veículo a infraestrutura de beira de estrada, onde é proposta uma solução para integração do HONEYD na road-side-unit (RSU).

This dissertation is an attempt to implement the honeypot software into highly dynamic Vehicular Ad-hoc Network (VANET).This adhoc network is based on wireless communication between nodes according to the - WAVE (Wireless Access in Vehicular Environment) protocol. A honeypot is a tool designed to simulate fake local computer networks, monitor them, and capture all malicious behavior aimed towards them. This dissertation is in the scope of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and it provides some contributions to development of security system and hence, road safety. Honeypot solution implemented in VANET would help improve security in the network by attracting, catching and analyzing all malicious attempts to break the security system. The study of proposed solution begins with research and introduction to the main principals of vehicular communication. It is accompanied with system and wireless communication technology description. Presentation of main security issues is also provided. Honeypot software is also presented by deep in-sight look into its types, functionality, architecture, advantages and disadvantages. Via the research the one type of recent available honeypot is chosen and then deeply scrutinized on the basis of implementation into Vehicular Ad-hoc Network. Finally, since this dissertation has theoretical character, to-be changes that should be carried out to implement fully the propose solution are provided. As this work is mainly focused on tailoring and proposing necessary changes to the TCP/IP honeypot software to meet the requirements of WAVE, the hardware tests in real environment as well as creating source code will not be done and are out of scope of this dissertation. Future work should be based on programming necessary modules and putting them into life.

Poniższa praca magisterska jest próbą przystosowania programu typu honeypot do działania w mobilnych sieciach ad-hoc - VANET (Vehicular Ad-hoc Network). Sieć ta oparta jest na bezprzewodowej komunikacji pomiędzy pojazdami zgodnie ze standardem WAVE (Wireless Access in Vehicular Environment). Honeypot jest narzędziem służącym do symulowania topologii sieci komputerowej, monitorowania jej i wychwytywania wszelakich prób włamań do niej. Temat tej pracy magisterskiej mieści się w obszarze działalności stowarzyszenia ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems). Będzie ona miała wpływ na polepszenie bezpieczeństwa w sieciach VANET i co za tym idzie bezpieczeństwa na drogach. Program honeypot wdrożony w sieciach VANET może w aktywny sposób przyczynić się do poprawienia bezpieczeństwa w sieci, poprzez przyciąganie, wychwytywanie i analizowanie wszelakich prób włamań. Praca ta zaczyna się przeglądem głównych zagadnień dotyczących bezprzewodowej komunikacji pomiędzy pojazdami w sieciach VANET. Szczególny nacisk jest kładziony na bezpieczeństwo w tych sieciach. Zaprezentowana jest również idea programu honeypot zarówno jak i jego rodzaje, funkcjonalność, architektura oraz wady i zalety. Poprzez analizę dostępnych programów służących jako honeypot, został wybrany jeden konkretny - honeyd i poddany dokładnej analizie pod kątem implementacji w sieciach VANET. Jako że ta praca magisterska ma charakter teoretyczny, jej wynikiem jest propozycja funkcjonalności i architektury urządzenia działającego jako honeypot w sieciach VANET. Zaproponowane są również zmiany którym powinien ulec software aby zapewnić pełną komunikację z nowym środowiskiem. Stworzenie kodu źródłowego odpowiadającego tym zmianom oraz testy na sprzęcie są pracą na przyszłość.
