COMMSIGNIA Participates in Flagship EU Horizon 2020 Project Advancing the Security of Connected Cars

Modern vehicles are becoming increasingly capable of establishing connectivity that allows the rich-information exchange between vehicles (V2V) and between vehicles and road infrastructure units (V2I) – together referred to as V2X or C2X. The so-called 'connected-vehicles' paradigm can bring about an enormous potential for safer transportation only if the involved security needs against a variety of 'new' threats are confidently satisfied.

„Our goal - together with our partners - is to go beyond the current state of the art to design and validate the next generation of secure vehicular subsystems," says Commsignia project lead András Váradi.

Modern vehicles are becoming increasingly capable of establishing connectivity that allows the rich-information exchange between vehicles (V2V) and between vehicles and road infrastructure units (V2I) – together referred to as V2X or C2X.

The so-called 'connected-vehicles' paradigm can bring about an enormous potential for safer transportation only if the involved security needs against a variety of 'new' threats are confidently satisfied.

The H2020 SAFERtec project (that will run from Jan 2017 to Dec 2019) seeks to explore in-depth the involved vulnerabilities of connected vehicles, apply innovative techniques for attack modeling, experimentally validate the quantification of security assurance levels and also contribute to relevant standards.

With a total budget of 3.8 million Euros funded by the European Commission, 9 partners of industrial, SME and academic profile coming from 6 different countries are joining their expertise to contribute to the vision of introducing a security assurance framework tailored for future networked vehicular technology.

"Commsignia provides the industry’s best complete security stack for V2X communication. We are also the first company to successfully interface and publicly demonstrate a working solution with the US DOT SCMS (US Department of Transport Security Credential Management System). Our stack is a flexible and feature rich solution offering the optimal combination of software and hardware based functions,” explains András Váradi, Commsignia’s lead within the project. "Our goal - together with our partners - is to go beyond the current state of the art to design and validate the next generation of secure vehicular subsystems and so improve our product portfolio in the process.”
