In recent years, the number of automobiles on the road has increased tremendously. Due to high density and mobility of vehicles, possible threats and road accidents are increasing. Wireless communication allows sending safety and other critical information. Due to this inherent wireless characteristic and periodic exchange of safety packets, Vehicular Ad-hoc NETwork (VANET) is vulnerable to number of security threats like sybil attack or temporal attack.
