VANET, Security, Adhoc, Attacks in VANETs


Vehicular Adhoc Networks (VANET) are becoming more popular as the need for accessing and sharing data while on the move is increasing. Value-added applications such as online payment services, geographical location identification, etc. in VANET, improve driving safety, passenger comfort, offer great business opportunities, and attract more and more attention in our daily life. VANETs connect vehicles into a huge mobile adhoc network to share information on a larger scale. The various attacks in VANETs are the Sybil attack, DDOS attack, misbehaving and faulty nodes, sinkhole attack, spoofing, traffic analysis attack, position attack, and illusion attack. Providing security to VANET is important in terms of providing user anonymity, authentication, integrity, and privacy of data. In this paper, a comprehensive survey on the threats and vulnerabilities in VANETs are explored and analysed in detail. The compromised security goals are identified for each threat. The existing solutions for these threats are discussed in this paper.
