Cloud computing has emerged as a viable technology for supporting utility computing. In the future, vehicles are likely to be equipped with devices that have large computation and communication power as well as large storage. Such computation power and storage are often underutilized. People in several areas such as traffic management, parking management, etc. can benefit from utilizing the unused computation, communication and storage capabilities of the vehicles on the road as well as from the traffic information collected by the vehicles to provide services. In this paper, we propose a secure architecture for the vehicular cloud to support the above-mentioned services. The architecture encourages vehicles to contribute their underutilized resources to the cloud by issuing tokens which can be used by the vehicles to get services from the cloud.
