The number of vehicles has increased significantly and it needs a smart parking system that helps users find an available parking space. Increasing car thefts are a cause of concern for users. Consequently, users attempt to find a secure parking spot. This paper focuses on achieving various aspects of security for a smart parking system. First, only authorized users can enter the secure parking lot. Each user has an identification card and a private complex password that is difficult to detect. Second, the national identification number, user name, and car plate number are encrypted using advanced 128-bit encryption algorithms. In addition, the user password is encrypted using secure 256-bit hash algorithms. In addition, we measure the performance of the proposed solution using the IEEE 802.11ac standard in terms of average end-to-end delay and throughput. Finally, we design an adaptive framework to model a smart parking system under attack with three scenarios. In the first scenario, if an attacker has access to the smart card and does not have access to the password. The second scenario, if ID card modification could be a threat to the system. The third scenario, when the parking ID number, ID card, and password are stolen by the attacker. The results present the encrypted case outperforms the unencrypted case in terms of the average end-to-end delay. In addition, in terms of throughput, we found that performance was better for the unencrypted case.
