The Threat MOVE project is a collaboration between the Software Systems Architecture and Security group at KTH Royal Institute of Technology, foreseeti AB, F-Secure, Volvo Cars, and Scania.
The increasing level of computerization makes modern vehicles vulnerable to cyber attacks. Software-based tools for threat modeling and simulation can be used to assess the probability that an attacker manages to reach different parts of the vehicle system. However, today there are no such tools for the transport domain. The goal is to develop a threat modeling and simulation language that allows for real-world modeling and simulation of vehicle information system attacks, as well as implementing and testing the language with real-world systems. This will help automotive IT security to be modeled and simulated in both design and operational phases, thus contributing to increased understanding of security challenges and risks. The proposed approach could well be a future best practice for the Swedish automotive industry.
This is a Vinnova funded ( 2017-03087 ) collaboration project with KTH, foreseeti, Volvo Cars, Scania, and F-Secure.
