Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANETs) have attracted much attention over the last few years. Localization and position information of vehicles is very significant in VANETs; this is a result of the special nature of VANETs. In this paper, the authors propose a location verification approach to prevent position spoofing attacks on VANETs. Cooperative Location Verification (CLV), which is their approach, basically used two vehicles, a Verifier and a Cooperator, to complete the verification of a vehicle (Prover). The Verifier and Cooperator sent a challenge to the respective Prover; and, the Prover was required to reply with its location information immediately which was based on radio frequency.
