Distinguished Seminar: Security and Privacy for the Connected Vehicle Technology with Harsh Kupwade-Patil

December 10, 2018

12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Harsh Kupwade-Patil
Sr. Staff Research Engineer
LG Electronics Mobile Research

This event is part of the CyLab Distinguished Seminar Series.


The automotive industry is in the midst of a digital revolution. With the introduction of Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) technology, the need for stronger security primitives is imminent. In the US, Secure Credential Management System (SCMS) is the leading candidate for provisioning and managing V2X certs. Moreover, it ensures privacy-by-design by introducing the concept of a “butterfly key expansion” process. In this talk, we review various V2X technologies, its security primitives (classical and quantum resistant crypto) and proposals for the simplification of the SCMS provisioning process. In particular, we review the unified butterfly key expansion process, pseudonym certificate revocation using activation codes and SCMS designs with quantum resistance.
