Vehicular Ad-Hoc Network (VANET) is a network of smart moving vehicles in which vehicles can communicate with each other and form a Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET). This network is formed by smart vehicles, fixed Road Side Units (RSUs) and Trusted Authority (TA). This setup of the network is called a smart network because it is integrated with Smart traffic management system to monitor the traffic movement in the network. In this system data exchange between the vehicles in VANET is very crucial. It means any type of security failure may affect system performance. There is a need for security in the network in such a way that unauthorized user cannot access the network. To achieve security of the communication channel is very important for isolating intruders/attackers. This paper proposes a scheme which uses the concept of Self Generated Session Key (SGSK). This scheme protects the secret key which is shared over the network channel. A comparative is also made with some existing schemes.
