Vehicular communication networks are a promising and emerging technology to facilitate road safety, Safety of life, traffic management, and infotainment dissemination for drivers and passengers. One of the ultimate goals in the design of such networking is to resist various malicious abuses and security attacks. In this paper, new security mechanisms are proposed to achieve secure certificate revocation, which is considered among the most challenging design objective in vehicular ad hoc networks. Recent research initiatives supported by governments and car manufacturers seek to enhance the safety and efficiency of transportation systems.
