Abstract: Communication between vehicles plays a major role in avoiding accidents at crowded areas. Security of the data to be communicated is another aspect to be thought of. In this paper authors have made an attempt to establish secure communication within a VANET network using IEEE standard 802.11p protocol which covers 1000 meters range. Authors have proposed a novel approach to ensure more security with which a 40% more secure VANET network can be realized.

Keywords: WEP, security, VANET, 802.11p.
