In this paper, the authors have introduced a novel format for misbehavior detection schemes. Misbehavior detection schemes form a basic part of disobeying node ejection in Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANETs). A misbehaving node can send messages correspondent to an incident that either has not occurred, or incorrect information corresponding to an actual incident, or both, causing applications to breakdown. When misbehavior is identified, it is vital to extort the root cause of the observed misbehavior. This paper uses the Post-Crash Notification (PCN) application to illustrate the basic considerations and the key factors affecting the dependability recital of such schemes.
