Abstract—This paper presented a literature survey on security challenges in Vehicle Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs). Many researches on Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks (MANETs) have been done where VANETs routing protocol has taken as a new protocol exist in the network. This protocol or system allows cars to talk to each other where a wireless device sends information to nearby vehicles. More and more technique using VANETs also has been published but yet no comparison has been made between them to look further on the security issues. This research discussed the security issues such as confidentiality, authenticity, integrity, availability and non-repudiation aimed to secure communication between vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I). It discussed and analyzed literature on the possible security attacks from 13 researchers that address security and privacy concern in VANETs. Statistics on the relationship between security services versus the technique to encounter the possible attacks is tabulated. Five security services with security attacks and techniques also have been presented. This paper can serve as a reference in building the new technique for VANETs.
