A network in which the vehicular nodes are free to join or leave the network is known as vehicular ad hoc network (VANET). Either vehicle to vehicle or vehicle to infrastructure types of communication is performed in this decentralized type of network. The identification and elimination of Distributed-Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks from VANETs is the major objective of this research. The nodes that can flood victim nodes with large numbers of rough packets are chosen by the malicious nodes in this kind of attack. Identifying such malicious nodes from the network is an important research objective to be achieved. The technique which is proposed in this research is based on the two step verification. In the two steps verification technique, when the network performance is reduced to threshold value then the traffic is monitored that which node is sending data on such high rate. NS2 simulator is used to implement the proposed technique. With respect to various performance parameters, the proposed technique is analyzed. A comparative evaluation of results achieved from proposed and existing techniques is also done to conclude the level of improvement achieved.
