ESCRYPT has been leading the effort in securing V2X communications. ESCRYPT have been the technical security experts in helping to define the specifications around for the Security Credentials Management System (SCMS), the security infrastructure behind V2X.
The SCMS, a specialized Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), is the critical element of the security and privacy for V2X. All communicating units (i.e. vehicles and roadside equipment) which are equipped with a V2X technology, have to be registered with the SCMS. Only units with valid security certificates and credentials are able to send authenticated messages that will be trusted by the receiving unit.
CycurV2X-SCMS is a set of PKI backend infrastructure components that are used to provision (enroll), register, and manage the security services for V2X communications in vehicles and roadside units.
