Vehicular Ad hoc NETwork (VANET) is a class of ad hoc network that consists of vehicles and Road Side Units (RSUs). VANET originally created to enhance safety on the road using cooperative collision warning via Vehicle-To-Vehicle (V2V) communication and Vehicle-To-Infrastructure (V2I). A VANET uses every participating car into a wireless node or router, allowing cars approximately 100 to 300 meters of each other to connect and to form a network with wide range. As car falls out of the signal range, other cars can join in, connecting vehicles to one other so that a mobile internet is created. However, in this paper, the authors concentrate on classification of VANETS and their security attacks.
