The intelligent vehicle communication network is prone to cyberthreats, which are difficult to solve using traditional centralized security approaches. Blockchain is an immutable peer-to-peer distributed database containing cryptographically secured information. Blockchain shows successful use cases in financial applications, smart contact, protecting digital copyright of media contents. It extends to all industries including the secure IoT devices, embedded systems, etc. The superior feature of blockchain is its decentralized, immutable, auditable database that secures transactions by protecting privacy. In this chapter, we contemplate the environment of the intelligent vehicle communication network and issues regarding methods of building a blockchain-based trust network among intelligent vehicles. We present the use cases of blockchain in intelligent vehicles in the phase of ongoing research or that under development from automotive industries and academic institutes. We also deliberate the challenging issue of blockchain for intelligent vehicles.
