Building a cybersecurity solution for the connected and cooperative automotive mobility

Building a cybersecurity solution for the connected and cooperative automotive mobility

9 November 2023

The Cooperative Connected and Automated Mobility (CCAM) Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) defines cybersecurity as a Key Enabling Technology required to provide robustness and resilience. What is more, cyberattacks and threats increase as more connected and automated cars hit the roads, and CCAM thus requires more cybersecurity and privacy tools. Considering the new regulatory requirements in CCAM, a report from Precedence Research estimates the market potential at 535 million euros.

The SELFY project aims to provide a complete system increasing perception and awareness, robustness, attack detection and mitigation rate, as well as safe states and secure updates, everything orchestrated by a VSOC, to prevent and manage cyberattacks in connected and automated cars.

The project is developing a set of tools generating a distributed global solution, where protection, response and recovery decisions will be managed locally or globally. The SELFY toolbox will be able to be easily deployed across vehicles, infrastructure, and cloud. It supplies mechanisms of self-awareness, self-resilience and self-healing mechanisms and enhances TRUST between the different stakeholders. 

View of tools integrated into SELFY’s toolbox
  • Situational Awareness and Collaborative Perception (SACP)

The SACP includes a set of tools to obtain a comprehensive understanding of the environment, perception and position of objects through the use of artificial intelligence and the aggregation and fusion of sensor and V2X data.

  • Cooperative Resilience and Healing System (CRHS)

The CRHS includes a set of tools that will trigger self-protection whenever a compromised situation is detected. Actions can be taken locally or in cooperation at global CCAM level. This global capacity is embodied in the VSOC.

  • Trust Data Management System (TDMS)

TDMS includes a set of tools to build a secure and trusted environment for data in a collaborative context for both infrastructure and vehicles.

The SELFY project toolbox “customers” are connected vehicle providers (OEMs, Tier1, Tier2), road operators and traffic and infrastructure management centres (cities, traffic control centres, VSOCs), in addition to service providers (fleet operators, maintenance, insurance companies, etc.), infrastructure (road operators, cities, traffic control centres, SOCs).

The project results will also benefit standardization bodies, technical committees, or authorities, and will, through increasing trust, facilitate the adoption and deployment of CCAM.
