ECyTeCC 2020: Workshop on Emerging Cybersecurity Technologies for Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility
Toronto, Canada, May 6-8, 2020
Most current Cooperative Connected and Automated Mobility (CCAM) applications do not take automated actions based on data from external sensors. This fact severely limits the potential performance gains of cooperative applications. Having a secure vehicular communication sub-system is thus mandatory to extend situational awareness beyond the limits of the onboard sensors and to design truly cooperative automated mobility applications. Over the last decade there has been a vast amount of work on security for vehicular applications, leading to the standardization of several security protocols and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) architectures, being the most relevant the IEEE 1609.2 and ETSI ITS Security Standards. These security architectures are relatively complex and have a central management authority, with public and private stakeholders. However, it has been reported that some aspects of these standards are insecure and are not at a quantum-safe cryptography level. Furthermore, traceability is also an issue, made possible by sniffing network traffic and compare it with static information. Recently, several promising research lines have been proposed to overcome the limitations of existing security architectures for CCAM, notably the ones based on blockchain, self-sovereign identity, hybrid security schemes, and physical-layer security.
In this context, the 1st International Workshop on Emerging Cybersecurity Technologies for Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility aims to provide researchers and practitioners a forum for presenting and discussing research challenges addressing security technologies for CCAM systems and applications. In the last few years, with the onset of autonomous driving, cooperation among intelligent vehicles has been gaining increasing attention from car manufacturers, communication equipment producers, and mobile operators as a way to offer new services and improve the overall traffic performance while enhancing road users’ safety. However, the increased complexity and information sharing bring higher security risks and an extended exposure to attacks, which might compromise anonymity and safety.
Original, high quality contributions that are not yet published, submitted or not currently under review by journals or peer-reviewed conferences are sought. These can be of two types, full paper with up to 12 pages and short communication with up to 6 pages, both in Springer conference format.
