Connected Vehicles and Cybersecurity

 Average 0 out of 5

The USDOT is taking action to respond to the threat and improve the vehicle cybersecurity posture and capabilities of the United States.

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s (USDOT) connected vehicle architecture will encompass the entire system (not just the vehicle parts or the roadside parts), so secure uniform practices can be applied to the entire vehicle, traffic signals, work zones, and other parts of the connected vehicle ecosystem. The USDOT’s vision is to apply communication security from end-to-end as a unit of data travels from one object to another. The data unit can then travel through unknown media with the assured level of security.
