Vehicle cloud technology is a fusion technology of vehicle communication technology and cloud computing used in wired and wireless Internet, and has attracted attention as a new IT paradigm. It is expected that it would contribute to resolve the road traffic problem with effective communication by providing computer, sensor, communication, device, and resource. but security is necessary to apply vehicle cloud environment and it have to resolve security threats and various attacks occurred in wired and wireless vehicle environment. Therefore, in this paper, we designed security framework to provide secure communication between vehicle and vehicle, and vehicle and the Road side in the vehicle cloud environment. Safety and security of the vehicle environment was satisfied with the security requirements of the vehicle and cloud-based environment, and increased efficiency than the conventional vehicle network communication protocols.
