The emerging applications of vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication herald a new era of traffic safety and intelligent traffic management. Yet, in order to prevent attacks on the vehicular communication, new IT security requirements need to be considered. Secure communication among vehicles and between vehicles and infrastructure must be based on secure automotive on-board electronics networks.
To provide a secure basis for vehicular communication, the European research project EVITA (E-Safety Vehicle Intrusion Protected Applications) designs, verifies, and prototypes security building blocks of automotive on-board networks. The objective of this workshop is to present new project results such as the secure on-board architecture and protocol specifications to the public and to instigate a wider review. The target audience includes, beside the interested public, also potential users of the EVITA results such as car manufacturers and automotive electronics suppliers. The workshop is jointly organized by CAST and the EVITA consortium.
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.
