Purpose and goal
HoliSec has focused on raising awareness of how potential cyber security threats can and should be addressed. Collaboration between OEMs and research partners has improved cost efficiency and increased international competitiveness. HoliSec showed that technologies such as intrusion detection, encryption, integrity, authentication, for data protection in the vehicle network are implementable in the automotive industry. HoliSec has also led to solutions and technologies developed in this project able to be transferred to other domains.
Expected results and effects
WP0: Project management has ensured good quality in produced results which have then been used and disseminated by the various partners. WP1: Security and integrity requirements when connecting vehicles WP2: Cryptographic support and key management WP3: Secure vehicle diagnostics; Secure communication; Interaction between security and privacy; Logging and intrusion detection WP4: Secure software and system design as well as secure validation and verification of software WP5: Demonstrated and disseminated results (concepts and methods) from the project.
Planned approach and implementation
Participating companies from two different types of OEMs have been important because passenger cars and commercial vehicles currently in different areas use different technologies and have different technical limitations. In order to be able to carry out the collaboration between the various OEMs and the academic partners involved in the project, the project was divided into a number of WPs. Each WP has then highlighted different cybersecurity-related areas and techniques. Partners have since worked with conducting research and investigations in the various WPs.
