Security of Connected Vehicles

(logo)

Overview

Vehicular networks present tremendous opportunities to increase safety through applications such as collision avoidance or traffic and congestion control by means of vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication. They also present opportunities to increase the user experience through emerging applications such as entertainment, mobile Internet games, mobile shopping, etc, applications facilitated by the future self-driven cars.

In order to ensure the successful adoption of these applications connected vehicles networks have to address the same major concerns that all form of communications have in terms of security, from bootstrapping trust to ensuring authentication and integrity of the communication, to more complex issues as these services and networks are going to interact with each other and with other networks including the Internet. In this project, our overarching goal is examine the main threats in connected vehicles applications under different adversarial models and deployments.
