Vehicular ad hoc network enables the vehicle in the network to establish a connection when they required to communicate with the other vehicle in the network. These networks are the attraction point for many researchers for last five to six years because of its recompense. There are various researches surrounding VANET to increase its competence to put good use of the advantage these networks tend to provide. The proposed paper will not only provide a comparative analysis of traditional protocol approaches but also will suggest design and analysis of the framework against blackhole and their effect on the difference performance parameter. We have studied and analyzed the AODV protocol in different scenarios in VANET and identified the vulnerabilities available in this protocol. We have proposed a new technique based on fuzzy logic-based control. This technique is used for detection and identification of blackhole attack in VANET. In our proposed technique, every node wants to transmit the packet to other node; they have to send the route request packet and wait until they receive the acknowledgement from receiver node. Then, the packet receiver node analyzes the packet and identifies and calculates the trust value of the packet based on how this packet is used by the sender. It is used as how this packet is transmitted in the network and how it is used by the node whose behavior is as malicious node. It increases the throughput of the network in data transmission speed.
