Abstract: Vehicular networks are prone to various security attacks because of its dynamic topology. One such attack is the black hole attack which advertises itself to source vehicle as the shortest path to the destination and drops the received packets. An efficient solution to detect black hole attackers in the vehicular network is proposed in this paper. It detects as well as broadcast information about the attackers to all other vehicles through RSUs. Thereby data packets will not be transmitted in the routes with attackers, and it will be isolated from the network by which the network will be prevented from the black hole attack. Both simple as well as collaborative attackers are simulated, and the performance of the proposed scheme is compared with that of the other related schemes. Simulation results show that the proposed scheme has better performance in terms of PDR and throughput with acceptable delay.
