Cybersecurity in Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) Communications

V2X or Vehicle-to-Everything (2021 Update)


The functional safety of many intelligent systems, such as autonomous robots and self-driving cars, remains largely dependent on the security and robustness of the trustworthy systems. These systems are expected to operate flawlessly, and hence need to be trained/secured on examples of all possible situational conditions. State-of-the-art methods have shown that cutting-edge technologies dramatically improve the security and robustness of the trustworthy systems against cyber-attacks. This project aims to build scalable, secure, privacy preserving, robust trustworthy systems for safety-critical systems in Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) communications using cutting-edge technologies such Blockchain, collaborative learning, deep learning, Software-defined Networking (SDN), etc.
