Vehicular Communication Networks is a subcategory of Mobile Communications Networks which have the special characteristics of high node mobility and fast topology changes. In this paper, we outline the basic characteristics and concepts of vehicular communications while specifically investigating one of the most challenging tasks in vehicular network deployment, which is security provision. We investigate what makes the security provision a hard task in vehicular environment and examine the standardization activities that try to overcome this problem. Moreover, we present the efforts done by the scientific community to solve many critical issues that hold back the vehicular network's deployment but also support the Intelligent Transportation Systems development. Finally, we investigate standardization efforts concerning Vehicular Communications and ITS.
