Connected, autonomous vehicles (CAV) are around the corner. Singapore is racing to bring autonomous transport systems and new services to the market. CAV creates new opportunities, where the economic and social gains will generate tremendous improvements in convenience, autonomous mobility-on-demand services, and safety. This has enormous potential to increase productivity and to reduce the costs of congestion, energy consumption, and pollution. However, any transformative technology creates new challenges and risks. Sophisticated cyber-attacks are inevitable on self-driving technology, where an attacker may try to hijack hyper-connected vehicles remotely, manipulate navigational data or attack the communication infrastructure - be it for cars, trains, public buses, or maritime vessels and cargo transport.
Hackers have manipulated the IT of vehicles already. With the move towards hyper-connected and autonomous transport systems, industry, academia, and government have to handle new challenges and risks, which must be addressed by holistic countermeasures, detection capabilities, and resilience mechanisms accordingly. Information security becomes increasingly important. The objective of this workshop is to gain insight from academia and industry on the future challenges associated with cybersecurity in autonomous self-driving vehicles, and e-mobility. Researchers and experts are invited to discuss technology challenges facing the intelligent transportation systems of the future. The workshop will focus several topics to extend and transfer existing knowledge in the following directions and domains:
- Cyber Threat Landscape in the Autonomous Era
- Risks of Autonomous Vehicles as Cyberweapons
- Secure Connected Cars and e-Mobility
- Threat Intelligence and AI for CAV Security
- Cybersecurity Strategies, Building Blocks, and Best Practices
- Security and Trust by Design: Bootstrapping Secure CAV
- Embedded Security for Automotive and Autonomous Systems
- Privacy-Preserving Technologies and Data Protection
- Legal and ethic implications of Autonomous Driving
- Framework for automotive security
- Standards, Policies, and Regulation
With contributions from Continental, Nanyang Technological University (NTU), and Fraunhofer Institute for Secure Information Technology (SIT) and more.
