PRESERVE Final Event approaching

The PRESERVE final event is approaching fast. Make sure you are registered.

PRESERVE Final Event with Public Workshop of C2C-CC WG SEC, ETSI TC ITS WG5 and HTG#6 in June 2015

We would like to cordially invite you to the PRESERVE Final Event with co-located public workshops of C2C-CC WG SEC, ETSI TC ITS WG5 and HTG#6. The two-day event takes place on the 17th and 18th of June 2015 at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden (http://www.kth.se/en/ees/kontakt/besokare-till-ee-1.22051).

PRESERVE and Compass4D sign a Memorandum of Understanding

In January 2015, PRESERVE and Compass4D (http://www.compass4d.eu) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that describes the ongoing cooperation for integrating the PRESERVE VSS within the Compass4D platform. This integration aims for running security-protected V2X communications in field operational testing and pre-deployment of secure V2X systems to evaluate the functionality and performance of the PRESERVE security subsystem under real-world conditions, and to assess the effects of the security on overall test results.

PRESERVE VSS now available for download

We are now providing the PRESERVE V2X Security Subsystem as free download to all interested parties.

You are only required to fill in a form with name, email, and organization so that we have an overview over who may be interested to use it.

At http://www.preserve-project.eu/vss-download you can download a binary version of the V2X Security Subsystem. The source code will be provided in a little while via a github repository.


PRESERVE presented four papers at IEEE VNC 2014. 4 out of 7 papers presenting security topics had involvement from PRESERVE which we consider a huge success.

Our contributions were:

Presentation of PRESERVE results at WIVEC 2014

The 6th International Symposium on Wireless Vehicular Communications was held on September 14-15, 2014 in Vancouver. The University of Twente presented some PRESERVE results on realistic attacker model in smart vehicles. Check out the publication "Jonathan Petit, Michael Feiri, Frank Kargl, "Revisiting Attacker Model for Smart Vehicles", IEEE WIVEC 2014!

International ITS Harmonization Workshop 2014

PRESERVE actively participates in the Harmonization Task Group #6, which will organize a public workshop to share information on work-in-progress and gather stakeholder feedback. For more information, see http://www.preserve-project.eu/node/106

PRESERVE at the DRIVE C2X Final Event

On July 16-17, 2014, DRIVE C2X presents its final results in Berlin. Interesting presentations and demonstrations show the work performed and the future challenges for cooperative driving. PRESERVE integrated with DRIVE C2X and worked on a secure solution. Congratulations to DRIVE C2X and thank you for the pleasant collaboration! 

Participation to focus group on security and privacy for the Cooperative ITS Corridor project

July 8th, 2014 - Helmond (NL) - Jonathan Petit (University of Twente) participated as security expert to a group discussion organized by the Cooperative ITS Corridor project. The meeting gathered experts from IT security, cyberforensics, road operators and industries to discuss the security and privacy issues of the two applications that will be deployed in the Cooperative ITS corridor on the highway route Rotterdam-Frankfurt/M-Vienna.
