ENISA promotes “security for safety” in the areas of Smart Cars and Intelligent Road Systems.
- Smart Cars can be defined by the integration of connected components in the car in order to bring added-value services to drivers and passengers.
- Intelligent Road Systems can be defined by the integration of connected cyber-physical components along the road that allow road operators to monitor and optimise traffic conditions (e.g. traffic information panels).
As these two domains rely on the Internet of Things and cyber physical-systems, cyber threats have real consequences on the safety of citizens. Hence it is important to understand what needs to be secured and develop specific security measures to protect Smart Cars and Intelligent Road Systems from cyber threats.
