Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks consist of a group of stationary or moving vehicles that are connected by wireless network. The Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANET’s) are created based on the principles of Mobile Ad Hoc Networks. The VANET’s are the subset of MANET’s which are used for intelligent transport systems. The VANET’s are network of vehicles which warn the passengers, drivers and vehicles regarding road safety and traffic congestion besides infotainment. The On Board Unit (OBU), Road Side Unit (RSU), and Trusted Authority make up the VANETs (TA). Experience with the VANET varying network density brought on by fast moving automobiles. The network may face frequent or irregular node disconnections when there is heavy traffic or even bad weather. In such circumstances, the V2I infrastructure may provide the nodes with the appropriate guidance. Vast computational processing resources are integrated into VANETs to give real-time vehicle location, speed, and route information. In VANETs, security concerns and issues are particularly important because they guarantee the safety of both ...
