Vehicular Ad-hoc NETwork (VANET) which is an application of Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET) are one of the main areas of research since they are expected to greatly influence and improve safe driving and traffic conditions. Apart from the great benefits it offers, these networks are highly vulnerable to attacks. Due to this reason much attention is given to the security and privacy issues in VANETs. Security issues in Vehicular Ad-hoc NETworks (VANETs) are important because of its diverse implications in safety related and congestion avoidance applications. A lot of research papers have been undergone to improve performance and security of this network.
