Validation platform for vehicle secure and highly trusted communications in the context of the cooperative ITS systems

Abstract : Cooperative Intelligent Transportation System (C-ITS) has gained much attention in the recent years due to the large number of applications/use cases that can improve future driving experience. Future vehicles will be connected through several communication technologies which will open the door to new threats and vulnerabilities that must be taken into account. The security protection is a key subject to address before C-ITS deployment. Moreover, the wide variety of C-ITS use cases/application with different security requirements makes the security a big challenge. User's privacy and data protection are also a challenge. Automotive industry and operators should comply with the national and international legislation for the data protection in C-ITS. In order to deal with privacy issues, existing solution consists of having a pool of valid pseudonym identities, by the vehicle, and changing them during the communication. One of the motivations of this thesis is to study the performance of pseudonym certificate reloading. In other words, it is important to ensure that the latency of reloading pseudonym certificates from the PKI while driving at different speeds is acceptable. The second motivation is the investigation on threats and vulnerabilities, especially on those that come from the pseudonym certificate's use. The objective is to implement those attacks and propose new solutions or find improvements to the existing solution for detecting and preventing security attacks. Security and privacy in C-ITS are considered as big challenges. A Lot of work has been done and good solutions exist in the security and privacy domain. We notice that systems cannot be secure at 100% but driver's safety is related to system's security. For this, the aim of this thesis is to do white hack of the C-ITS in order to improve the existing solution. A risk assessment is needed to identify our target of evaluation and analyse potential risks. The final goal of this thesis is to propose a security and performance validation plate-form for vehicular communication in the context of C-ITS.
