PROVIDER SERVICE IDENTIFIER (PSID): IEEE Std 1609.12™-2016
A Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments (WAVE) system is a radio communication system intended to provide seamless, interoperable services to transportation. These services include those recognized by the U.S. National Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) architecture and many others contemplated by the automotive and transportation infrastructure industries around the world, such as communication between vehicles and infrastructure (V2I), and communication among vehicles (V2V).
PSIDs have two uses specified in IEEE Std 1609.3. First, a service provider identifies advertised service opportunities by the PSID values in WAVE Service Advertisement (WSA) messages it transmits. Second, the WAVE Short Message Protocol (WSMP) delivers WAVE Short Message (WSM) content to higher layer entities based on the PSID value set by the sender in the WSM message header. A third use of the PSID is specified in IEEE Std 1609.2. A security certificate lists the PSID value(s) identifying applications for which a sender is authorized to generate signed secured messages.
Note: As a prerequisite for the allocation of a PSID, the requestor of a PSID must demonstrate the need based on at least one of the above uses. For example, if a service identified by a PSID will be advertised via the WSA mechanism, then a PSID is required. Even for some services that are unadvertised, if the protocol used by the service is WSMP, then a PSID is required. Lastly, if the service uses certificates as defined in IEEE Std 1609.2, then a PSID is required. One or any combination of the above three uses indicates the need for a PSID.
