Special issue “Security, Privacy and Trust in Connected and Automated Vehicles”

REWIRE’s Technical Coordinator, Dr. Thanassis Giannetsos, is a guest editor on the Special Issue “Security, Privacy and Trust in Connected and Automated Vehicles”.

This special issue belongs to the section “Vehicular Sensing“, a section of Sensors (ISSN 1424-8220), aiming to cover the most recent advances in security, privacy and trustworthiness in next generation cooperative vehicular networks.

Interest lies in presenting insights into the threats and attacks facing such systems, alongside new advances in the safeguards that can be used to protect against them. Therefore, topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Trust Management and computing mechanisms to assess and enhance trust in the interactions between vehicles and between vehicles and infrastructure;
• Security, privacy and trust issues in all layers of 5G V2X infrastructures (MEC, backend, vehicle);
• Security and privacy in Intelligent Transportation Systems, e.g., vehicle platooning;
• Identity management approaches for V2X, based on VPKI, Verifiable Credentials, etc.;
• Authentication and misbehavior detection;
• Security threats and attacks facing connected and cooperative vehicular networks;
• Authenticity and integrity of hardware and software for connected vehicles;
• Privacy-preserving data sharing and analysis in automotive settings;
• Location privacy approaches to cooperative vehicular networks;
• Cyber security management system, incl. regulation, standardization, certification, interoperability, connection to other management systems;
• Cryptographic tools and protocols including post-quantum cryptography;

***Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2023***
