Secure and Efficient Communication in Highway Scenario for VANET

IJCSEC Front Page

Secure Qos routing algorithm are essential part of wireless communications that to offer a better QoS services and security assurances. In Vehicular Ad hoc Networks (VANETs) main aim is used to improve the efficient communication between vehicles. Due to an attack on routing process, the QoS services which will be degraded the whole network. We introduce the Ant Colony Optimization technique to determine feasible routes in VANETs by considering multiple QoS constraints. The Secure ACO technique used to improve secure and efficiency of the network. Simulation results demonstrate that security mechanism to guarantee reliable and efficient routing services.

Keywords: Ant Colony Optimization, QoS routing algorithm, Reliable routing, Secure Ant Colony Optimization, Secure Routing algorithm, VANETs.
