Abstract: The application of an intelligent transportation system (ITS) within smart cities is an emerging technology that requires access to a network, and might be exposed to cyberattacks, which may affect the privacy of users and drivers. One of the most important pieces of private information is the vehicle location, which may lead to physical attacks. Therefore, a security technique should be applied to secure the vehicle's user data and location. Adding hardware security to the tracking device will increase the hardware complexity to internet of things (IoT) sensor, which has a limited area. This paper proposed a low complexity cybersecurity architecture to protect user privacy and sensitive information. The implemented design has been synthesised and simulated, and results has been discussed and verified for selecting the best techniques of data protection and less design complexity. The hardware implementation can be reconfigured for different cipher keys and different size of cipher text.
