Vehicular Ad-Hoc Network (VANET) has become a popular research area as it has tremendous capacity to improve vehicle and road safety, traffic management and convenience as well as comfort to both drivers and passengers. Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs) are trying to find solution to avoid accidents and control traffic. It (VANET) is a piece of critical infrastructure that boosts traffic management efficiency and road safety. At present research efforts have placed a strong significance on novel VANET architectures and design implementations. A lot of VANET research works have focused on specific areas including broadcasting, navigation, Quality of Service (QoS), and security. This survey paper sheds some light on VANETs’ vulnerabilities and attacks. It surveys and examines some recent security problems and limitations of solutions. We observed that security is the key parameter for success of any VANET applications. There are still many critical challenges that should be taken into account such as privacy preservation, productivity, and usability. Therefore, the door for future research and efforts is open for more contributions in the field of Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks VANET.
