Vehicle-to-vehicle communication (V2V) is the process of transmitting data wirelessly between vehicles. By relaying the information about location and speed data between vehicles is via an ad hoc network is the primary aim of V2V communication. This communication takes place over an ADHOC mesh.V2V communication is thought to be the better alternative for the current vehicular(original equipment manufacturer: OEM) embedded systems which have features like adaptive cruise control, rear parking sonar and backup camera because the V2V technology enables an ubiquitous 360-degree awareness of surrounding threats. With the further advancement of the v2v communication many security flaws were found. The best way to analyze these flaws would be through a bi-directionally coupled simulation environment made of OMNET/SUMO, ns2 /SUMO, etc. Many possible attacks like botnet, GHOST, congestion etc. are being used to exploit the system every day, which can be simulated and studied in the simulated environment. In the starting we discuss about the general VANET characteristics, in the second part we discuss about all the existing flaws with which the system can be attacked and in the third and last part we discuss about the solutions to those problems and how the present conditions can be improved through the implementation.
