In this research, the authors propose a functionality based on message authentication code (MAC) to ensure the correctness of its path from a source to a destination. It aims to use a controller area network (CAN) over driving system. In the construction, MAC and a pseudorandom number generator having an intentional group structure are employed so that the correct user can authenticate a message and its path. The proposed method is experimentally evaluated by observing the computational time over IoT devices. As a result, it is found that the results show that it is possible to implement as an additional function that gives path authentication with additional time at most 3 times for the corresponding computation.
