Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANETs) have attracted a lot of attention over the last few years. VANETs are being used to improve road safety and enable a wide variety of value-added services. Here the authors discuss some of the main security threats and attacks that can be exploited in VANETs and present the corresponding security solutions that can be implemented to prevent those attacks. In this paper, they have done a survey of existing approaches to solve the problems associated with vehicular networks. The main contribution of this paper is to classify and identify different types of attacks in VANET.
