Project Meili was part of the UK Government and its partners Zenzic and InnovateUK £1.2 million programme to develop a cohesive understanding of the challenges and potential solutions to addressing digital resilience and cyber security within Connected and Automated Mobility.

The project reviewed automotive networks and associated standards for both current production vehicles and looked ahead for the next five years with the aim of understanding the requirements for a future Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) cybersecurity testing facility. It also developed a demonstration showing the potential to link V2X security methodology public key Infrastructure (PKI) with existing/legacy communication networks.

Their findings show that no single body is currently driving the market and since Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) will bring previously disconnected sectors together, a key challenge will be the harmonisation of the regulatory regime.

David Price, innovation and technology manager at Applus+ IDIADA said: "This project has shown us just how much work is needed to harmonise the approach to cybersecurity for automotive connectivity. At the same time, we have also been able to demonstrate potential ways to secure more traditional vehicle networks."

Crypta Labs CEO, Joe Luong said: "Our vision is to provide a complete end-to-end security solution for Defence, Aerospace and Critical Infrastructure.

"Understanding the direction of connectivity in Connected and Autonomous Mobility will allow us to meet the future cybersecurity needs of this crucial sector.

"Our quantum secure hardware security module and PKI-enabled prototype to secure future electric vehicle charging stations is just one way we believed we can help to advance the Connected and Autonomous Mobility emerging industry."
