    New technologies such as vehicle-to-X (V2X) communication and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) are on the rise. They are mainly used to increase road safety as well as traffic efficiency and to provide customers with infotainment features. However, these new technologies also provide the opportunity to combat vehicle related crime which is present in our society. In this paper, we summarize current measures tackling vehicle related crime and propose a security function, namely electronic decal, based on V2X communication to combat vehicle theft. Furthermore, we propose an integration of the electronic decal functionality into the message format based on the latest standardization progress of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).
