Lesson Background HTML
As connected vehicle applications exchange information among vehicles, roadway infrastructure, traffic management centers and wireless mobile devices, a security system is needed to ensure that users can trust in the validity of information received from other system users. The future widespread deployment of connected vehicles is expected to utilize a Security Credential Management System (SCMS): a public key infrastructure (PKI) mechanism that uses digital certificates issued by certificate authorities (CAs) to ensure authentic and trustworthy vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications. The following lessons explore various deployment and operational factors that will need to be considered when selecting ownership and governance models for an SCMS.
