In this chapter, we propose to integrate cloud computing with Vehicular Ad Hoc NETworks (VANETs) so that the vehicles in the network can share network resources and avail of a variety of information collected by them to make useful decisions. We present an architecture that includes a cloud-based VANET. Then, we study the Internet of Vehicles (IoV) application management system in this cloud-based VANET. The proposed architecture facilitates the recognition of available resources in real time. In addition, it provides cloud-based IoV applications to cloud-based VANET enabled vehicles. The presented work also demonstrates a security algorithm suitable for a cloud-based VANET. We propose a distributed methodology for a secure vehicular network to communicate; and demonstrate the potential of our architecture for real-time access to IoV applications in cloud-based VANET environment.
