SELF assessment, protection & healing tools for a trustworthY and resilient CCAM

Project description

Toolbox for more secure, robust and resilient connected vehicles

By 2026, the number of connected cars is projected to reach 50 million in Europe. Safety will be an important feature, as EU regulations will require these vehicles to possess cybersecurity certificates. The EU-funded SELFY project aims to develop collaborative tools promoting situational awareness, data sharing, resilience and trust. They will be able to operate either independently or together with other tools. The result will be a distributed, global solution where decisions are managed locally or globally, as needed, for cyberattacks, malicious activities and hazards. By adopting the toolbox, five traffic and infrastructure management organisations will benefit, achieving an effectiveness rate of more than 90 % in detecting vulnerable vehicles and security breaches.


SELFY will increase CCAM ecosystem’s safety, security, robustness, and resilience by researching and developing a toolbox made of collaborative tools which main pillars are: (i) situational awareness, through collaborative perception and monitoring; (ii) data sharing, advanced processing for detection of malicious events and decision-making; (iii) resilience, increased ability to adapt and respond to cyber-threats and cyber-attacks; and (iv) trust, including guarantees regarding privacy, confidentiality, integrity and immutability of data in a collaborative CCAM environment. SELFY tools can operate individually and/or cooperatively with other tools, generating a distributed global solution, where SELF-protection, SELF-response and SELF-recovery decisions will be managed locally or globally as appropriate for any given cyber-attack, malicious activity or hazard, extending the Operational Design Domain (ODD)

In Europe, 50 million connected cars are expected in circulation by 2026, and EU regulations requires for cybersecurity certificates for vehicles. In this scenario, SELFY long term impact is grounded on a value proposition that is OEM and/or vendor agnostic, thus facilitating adoption at all stages of the value chain. Additionally, the consortium involves all necessary stakeholders for co-creating a sound and comprehensive CCAM solution: including OEMs, road operators, traffic and infrastructure management, researchers, and policy-makers.

SELFY expected outcomes include 5 traffic and infrastructure management organizations adopting the SELFY toolbox, which will benefit of a >90% effectiveness rate in detection of vulnerable vehicles and security breaches and an increase of >75% off the mitigation rate at demonstrated in TRL6 by the end of the project.
