Vehicles on the roads play an important role in our daily lives. Increasing number of vehicles on the roads is producing more problems for traffic management authorities, drivers, and other people. Some of these problems include collisions, congestion, air pollution and fuel consumption. Connected and autonomous vehicles (CAVs) will form the backbone of future next-generation intelligent transportation systems (ITS) providing travel comfort, road safety, and several value-added services. Connected vehicles share sensitive information through Vehicle to Everything (V2X) communication. Road-Side Unit (RSU) and On-Board Unit (OBU) play an important role to share such information through Basic Safety Message (BSM). Security is one of the biggest challenges in Vehicular Adhoc Network (VANET) because vehicular communication is vulnerable to various attacks. In VANET, security must ensure that exchanged messages are not altered or created by malicious attackers. Denial of Service (DoS), Replay, Position Falsification and Sybil attacks are some of the known attacks in VANET. Timely detection of these attacks can play a vital role in securing vehicular communication.  
In this work, we proposed a robust framework to detect position falsification attack using hybrid approach.  In this approach, we use a combination of plausible data and machine learning algorithm to detect bogus information in BSMs in a timely manner. We used Vehicular Reference Misbehavior (VeReMi), a well-known simulated dataset available publicly, to perform our experiment. Our proposed hybrid approach shows an improvement to detect position falsification attack in terms of prediction rate.
