In vehicular ad-hoc networks, based on its transmissions it is possible to locate and track a vehicle, during communication with other vehicles or road-side transportation. This tracking leads to threats on location privacy of vehicle’s user. This work solves the problem of providing privacy location in VANET by allowing vehicles; prevent tracking of their broadcast communications. Firstly, this identifies unique characteristics of VANET which is considered when designing suitable location security solutions. By considering these observations, this work implements a Short Range Communication in VANET, and evaluates the security enhancement achieved by some existing standard constraints of VANET applications.
