High-speed wireless network technologies play a vital role in autonomous vehicle communication systems (AVS), i.e., IoV (Internet of Vehicles), and enhance the effectiveness and reliability of the communication network. Since the size of IoV communication is rapidly growing, it is now an essential part of our regular routines. Due to its dynamic nature and massive size, it is essential to avoid any miss-communication and protect the data privacy of each vehicle.IoVallowsAVS to link remotely to each other and to various platforms and groups that may be using the same communications system. This quality link between vehicles and the need for information exchanges among vehicles introduces vulnerability and threats that can be exploited by cybercriminals. This research emphasizes on enhancing data security in real-time IoV communication. It presents a trust-driven privacy method using encryption and steganography for IoV. This method uses an Efficient Algorithm for Secure Transmission (EAST) that integrates encryption and steganography algorithms. The proposed EAST is then compared to the various current state of arts, i.e., AES (Advanced Encryption Standard), DES (Data Encryption Standard), G-DES (Generalized DES), and Standard LSB on the basis of various performance measuring parameters, i.e., encryption and decryption time, efficiency, avalanche effect, PSNR, and file cover size. Experimental results are promising for the proposed EAST method, which reported a better time efficiency of 0.86 ms, avalanche effect of 58.81%, and PSNR of 78.58%, compared to the current state arts.
