Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANETs) are sought to control traffic, avoid accidents, and control other aspects of traffic. It (VANET) is a piece of critical infrastructure that bolsters traffic management efficiency and road safety. Nowadays, VANET applications have received a great deal of attention by the research community due to the important role that such networks can play. However, security in VANETs still remains a big challenge due to its nature. This survey paper sheds some light on
more » ... Ts' vulnerabilities and attacks. It surveys and examines some recent security solutions along with their achievements and limitations. As a result, we conclude that security is the key to success for VANET applications, but still some critical challenges remain. Moreover, when designing a sufficient security solution; privacy preservation, productivity, and usability should be taken into account. Therefore, the door for future research is open for a lot more contributions in this filed.
