CARAMEL's (Artificial Intelligence based cybersecurity for connected and automated vehicles) goal is to proactively address modern vehicle cybersecurity challenges applying advanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) techniques, and also to continuously seek methods to mitigate associated safety risks. To achieve a secure vehicle development process with explicit cybersecurity considerations, well established methodologies coming from the ICT sector are required, allowing to assess vulnerabilities and potential cyber attack impacts. CyberLens B.V. will lead the effort of eliciting the security and privacy requirements that will drive the implementation of the CARAMEL global security solution. CyberLens will also assist the modelling of the threats affecting the cybersecurity posture of connected vehicles as well as the development of the hardware security modules of the CARAMEL anti-hacking device.
