Mobile Security for Intelligent Cars

Date: 27.08.2009
Duration: 10:00-17:00
Location: Fraunhofer-Institut für Graphische Datenverarbeitung IGD
Fraunhoferstr. 5
64283 Darmstadt

Automotive safety applications based on vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication have been identified as a means for decreasing the number of fatal traffic accidents in the future. Examples of such applications are local danger warnings, traffic light pre-emption, or electronic emergency brakes. While these functionalities herald a new era of traffic safety, new security requirements need to be considered in order to prevent attacks on these systems. Examples of such threats are forced malfunctioning of safety-critical components or the interference with the traffic flow by means of fake messages.

The CAST Workshop "Mobile Security for Intelligent Cars" will provide a forum for researchers, engineers, and users to discuss and learn about recent developments in the field of secure vehicular communication for traffic safety applications. The workshop is jointly organized by CAST and the EVITA consortium.

CAST Online Workshops

In these times of COVID-19 restrictions in particular, questions of cyber security remain highly topical. CAST would like to make its contribution and will be organising the CAST workshops online as virtual events from July 2020. This will ensure a continuous exchange of knowledge on current cyber security issues.

The CAST workshops in digital format will be implemented with the open source web conference system BigBlueButton, which is operated with a CAST-owned server located in Darmstadt to ensure data protection.

As soon as the COVID-19 restrictions allow it, CAST will return to the usual workshop format and is already looking forward to welcoming you again personally in Darmstadt.
