IEEE 1609.0-2013   Standard for Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments (WAVE) - Architecture
This standard describes the Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments (WAVE/DSRC) architecture and services necessary for multi-channel DSRC/WAVE devices to communicate in a mobile vehicular environment. The purpose of this standard is to describe the architecture of the DSRC/WAVE operations currently represented by the family of IEEE 1609 standards and IEEE P802.11p.

IEEE 1609.11-2010   Standard for Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments (WAVE)-- Over-the-Air Electronic Payment Data Exchange Protocol for Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)
This standard specifies the application service layer and profile for Payment and Identity authentication, and Payment Data transfer for Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) based applications in Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments (WAVE). This standard defines a basic level of technical interoperability for electronic payment equipment, i.e. onboard unit (OBU) and roadside equipment (RSE) using DSRC.

IEEE 1609.2-2016   Standard for Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments - Security Services for Applications and Management Messages
Secure message formats, and the processing of those secure messages, within the DSRC/WAVE system are defined. The standard covers methods for securing WAVE management messages and application messages, with the exception of vehicle-originating safety messages. It also describes administrative functions necessary to support the core security functions
