On 17th and 18th of June, 2015, the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Sweden, was hosting a unique event on security and privacy of cooperative Intelligent Transportation Systems (cITS). Not only was the European FP7 project PRESERVE holding its final event, but PRESERVE was joined by partners from the Car-2-Car Communication Consortium’s security working group, represented by its chairman Henrik Broberg from Volvo Cars, by ETSI TC ITS Working Group 5, represented by its chair Brigitte Lonc, and by the Harmonization Task Group 6 of the International ITS Cooperation task force, represented by Suzanne Sloan from the US Department of Transportation and Wolfgang Höfs from the European Commission.
About 45 participants mostly from Europe and the U.S. joined the two day event to experience the results of the PRESERVE project and discuss one overarching question: is cooperative ITS security ripe for deployment? Participants came in equal shares from academia, OEMs, suppliers, and public organizations. As a result, discussions reflected the full spectrum of viewpoints on cITS security.
