Dr. André Weimerskirch, VP Cyber Security at Lear Corporation, visited the CIS department to give a distinguished seminar on V2V security and privacy. He talked about the rule to mandate vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) safety applications in passenger vehicles issued by the US Department of Transportation. He provided an overview of the leading candidate for the proposed V2V security and privacy protection scheme, which includes the communication security applied for communication between vehicles, the public-key infrastructure (PKI) to provide security credentials to vehicles, services of that PKI to detect and revoke misbehaving vehicles, privacy protection mechanism to provide anonymity and prevent vehicle tracking, and cybersecurity mechanisms in the vehicle to protect against extraction of key material and hacking into the vehicle's electronics.

Dr. André Weimerskirch is vice chair of the SAE Vehicle Electrical System Security Committee, co-chairs the Mcity cybersecurity working group at the University of Michigan, co-organizes the SAE ComVEC heavy vehicle cybersecurity session, and contributes to the joint SAE/ISO Cybersecurity Working Group.
