ITU Workshop on Security Aspects of Intelligent Transport System

28 Aug 2017

Geneva, Switzerland

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) will hold a workshop on 'Security aspects of intelligence transport system', on 28 August 2017, at the ITU headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.

The workshop will be followed by the meeting of the ITU Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T) Study Group 17 (Security), on 29 August – 6 September.

The aim of the workshop is to build a bridge between ITU's technical expertise and the security requirements of stakeholders interested in implementing secure intelligent transport systems (ITS). The objective include better understanding the current landscape of threats; identifying security requirements from vehicle manufacturers, suppliers, service providers, etc.; sharing the on-going activities among relevant groups (ITU-T SG17, ITU CITS, WP29/TFCS, ISO/TC204 and SAE) in terms of security; identifying stakeholders with whom Study Group 17 could collaborate further on any potential collective action; and identify potential security topics or ongoing security work requiring collaboration among relevant groups above.

Topics to be tackled during the event include understanding current threats and security requirements, ITS security standardisation, mitigating security threats to automotive systems, and future directions on ITS standardisation activity.

The workshop is open to ITU member states, ITS regulators, policymakers, the automotive industry, ITS service/platform providers, mobile operators, international standards organisations, NGOs related to road safety, and academia.
