Abstract: Vehicular Ad-hoc Network (VANET) is a network where vehicles within the network can communicate with each other using the help of the road side equipment. There are wide applications using VANET and hence has emerged as an important technology in the automobile industry. Since, VANET is very helpful in providing the real time traffic information to the vehicle users, offering notification related to the post crash, street hassle handling and traffic vigilance ability, it is widely used and in good demand. But, VANETs are prone to several threats due to its security related challenges like reduced tolerance for error, very high mobility, etc and high rate of attacks like eavesdropping, impersonating, session hijacking on the vehicular network. Hence, safety is a high priority in VANET. In this study, we develop a group authentication mechanism to securely form a group of vehicle that can communicate with each other efficiently.
