Vehicular Ad-hoc Networks (VANET) has been focused on driving safety, driving efficiency and entertainment in road networks. Vehicular networks are the subset of Mobile Ad-hoc Networks (MANET). Each and every vehicle is considered as a node. One node can directly communicate with another node within its transmission range. When the nodes communicate, there is a chance of malicious attackers to intrude and degrade the performance of the entire vehicular network. Malicious node detection is a vital security issue for safety-related applications. The malicious vehicle should be detected and revoked to the smooth functioning of the vehicular communication system. The malicious nodes are revoked to avoid flooding of any wrong message from these may lead to adverse effects like traffic jam and accidents. A defense technique such as certificate revocation is devised to eradicate and provide protection against the malicious nodes that behaves like a legitimate node. The revoked information of the non-legitimate node should be disseminated to the nodes in the vehicular network. In this paper, a new model for Certificate revocation scheme for VANET is proposed to overcome the flaws of Certificate Revocation List (CRL). Cluster-based communication and Merkle Hash Tree Certificate Revocation model (C2MTCR) is based on clustering and construction of Merkle Hash Tree to revoke the malicious certificates from the vehicular networks. The proposed work is simulated using Network Simulator (NS2) and Power BI tool and the results are compared with the existing works.
