The VANETs are a subset of Mobile Ad-hoc NET works (MANETs) in which communication nodes are mainly vehicles. Every vehicle in VANET must be authenticated to establish a reliable and secure network communication. In this paper, a security approach has been proposed in AODV protocol to detect a malicious vehicle. A vehicle can be defined as malicious if it doesn't send acknowledgement to a trusted authority or if it's not registered with the centralized authority. Such malicious vehicles have to be isolated and should not be allowed to participate in the network & further communication is blocked with the malicious vehicles. Sample architecture with centralized control unit, RSUs and some vehicles is illustrated to demonstrate the added security feature. The Proposed protocol was analyzed using the performance metrics Packet Delivery Ratio, Dropped Packets and End to End Delay.
