Purpose and goal

The purpose of the preliminary study has been to investigate the prerequisites for a larger Vinnova FFI project, which will provide a threat modeling and simulation language for vehicle IT. The purpose of the preliminary study was to 1) investigate how the larger project is to be designed, 2) what requirements there are for the threat modeling and simulation languages proposed, and 3) which stakeholders that should be included in the larger project.

Expected results and effects

The main result of the preliminary study is our consortium (KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Foreseeti, F-Secure, Scania and Volvo Cars) who have jointly applied for the larger project in June 2017, a detailed plan for this project (application with work packages, budget, and timetable), and the beginning (a draft) of the framework that will form the basis for the threat modeling and simulation language (we call it MAL - Model-based Attack-graph Language).

Planned approach and implementation

In the preliminary study we have had many discussions about the layout of a larger project that will develop a threat modeling language for vehicle IT. This has resulted in the plan we submitted as part of the project application for THREAT MOVE (our large project). We have also had many presentations and conversations with people in the industry to build a larger consortium for THREAT MOVE. And we have developed a basis / draft for the framework that aims to further develop and use in THREAT MOVE.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
