In critical vertical sectors/domains, cybersecurity technologies deployed in several application domains should be aligned to the specific domain needs, linking the demand and supply sides for such cyber technologies.
Proposals under this sub-topic should tackle on at least two of the following items:
(1): Secure access management for citizens to all types of vehicles. A European Single Transport market requires a pan-European, seamless privacy aware solution to access across mass, shared and individual mobility, which will bring added value to citizens while safeguarding data protection and privacy. However the corresponding increased interconnection of smarter systems increases the vulnerability surface and therefore novel tailored solutions should be proposed.
(2): Assurance and protection against specific cyber-attacks in the multimodal transport domain, addressing interconnected threats and propagated vulnerabilities. Feasible solutions in practice should be delivered, shielding the vulnerabilities that have severe impact and catastrophic propagation effects to the multimodal transport operations. Applicants should propose integrated, holistic approaches and tools for dynamically, automatically forecast and manage complex security and privacy incidents, and personal data breaches in the multimodal transport service and operation. Proposals should improve the security intelligence of treating complex multimodal transport security and privacy incidents, notably personal data breaches, vulnerabilities and attacks. Proposals should develop practical solutions for relevant on-line sharing information and distributing real-time security, privacy and data protection warnings to all stakeholders in the multimodal transport ecosystem; collaboration with CERTs/CSIRTs is highly encouraged.
(3): Standardization to allow the quick adoption of cybersecurity best practices in the domain. Proposals should evaluate the feasibility of a security labelling for transport and deliver relevant recommendations and options.
