"With the development in the field of wireless communications, ITS (Intelligent Transport System) applications are developed based on car-to-car communication standards such as Wireless Access in Vehicular Environments (WAVE) and Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC). Wireless networks are gaining popularity now-a-days, as the users require wireless connectivity irrespective of their geographic position. VANETs are the promising approach to provide safety and other applications to the drivers as well as passengers. In this paper, the authors discuss the VANET architecture, security issues, characteristics in VANETs and current solutions to these attacks."
