Activities description

Activity 1: Project Management

This activity deals with the Action’s management and it will ensure that all activities are performed and that all milestones are achieved. It will handle all the communication with INEA and the European Commission. The Action is coordinated by the UPRC, with the assistance of other beneficiaries. The Action’s governance will be ensured by the steering committee (all beneficiaries directed by the Project Manager), the Advisory Board (one member from WIND, a Greek mobile communications operator that will develop 5G networks in Greece, one member from ENISA, and one member from a Greek CSIRT) and the General Assembly (Project Manager, Technical Manager, Activity Leaders, members of the Steering Committee) which will be convened on a regular basis.

Activity 2: Use cases and scenarios for the EV/connected vehicle for the GR-BG-SRB 5G corridor

This Activity aims to define the specificities of the Connected Vehicle use case as it moves along the GR-BG-SRB 5G corridor. Specifically, the Activity will determine the components that constitute a 5G corridor and will specify a reference set of use cases that covers the functionality of the corridor. Moreover, it will include cross-border operation into the use cases focusing on interoperability and continuity of operations and it will focus on and support the electric vehicle factor. Finally, this activity will define the functional requirements of the identified data flows, including interfaces, input interfaces, entry points, standards, encoders etc.

Activity 3: Reference Modelling – Analysis and management over the Risk circle

This activity aims at performing vulnerability assessment, threat and attack modelling. It will use the set of reference use cases from Activity 2, which will be implemented using a methodology developed by UPRC in a H2020-SAFERtec project. Several levels of automation will be covered. The activity will ensure that the relevant authorities of the Member States concerned by the corridor will be also consulted during activity 3 and their views will be taken into account for the vulnerability assessment, threat and attack modelling.

Activity 4: Evaluation, Penetration Tests definition and Security Assessment Toolkit design

The activity aims at developing an evaluation framework that can be used to test and assess security services for the Connected Vehicle and all actors enabling and facilitating 5G networking and ITS services in 5G corridor use-cases. The activity will ensure that the relevant authorities of the Member States concerned by the corridor will be also consulted during Activity 4 and their views will be taken into account for the Security Assessment Toolkit.

Activity 5: Dissemination and exploitation activities

This activity aims to disseminate the Action’s results to the relevant audience (key authorities/organizations/academia and networks that strategically influence innovation and security research in the automotive/ITS sector) through a broad range of traditional (i.e., talks, publications), online (i.e., project webpage) and novel communication channels (i.e., social media platforms). In addition, it will strive to ensure the exploitation of the achieved results.
