Security and privacy for the forthcoming vehicle-to-vehicle communications
Speaker: William Whyte, Security Innovation
Wednesday Feb 25, 9:30-11am
Hariri Seminar Room

The US Department of Transportation announced on February 3rd, 2014, that
it intends to mandate a system for inclusion in all light vehicles that
would allow them to broadcast their position and velocity on a more-or-less
continuous basis. The system is claimed to have the capability to prevent
up to 80% of all unimpaired collisions. The presentation, by a key member
of the team designing the communications security for the system, will
discuss the security needs, the constraints due to cost and other issues,
and the efforts that are being made to ensure that the system will not
compromise end-user privacy. This will include an overview of some novel
cryptographic constructs that improve the scalability, robustness, and
privacy of the system. There may even be proofs.


Charles River Crypto Day will be on Friday, Feb 20 at Microsoft Research
(One Memorial Drive, Cambridge, MA). Program here:
