escar 10

8th conference on Embedded Security in Cars

Bremen, Germany

16-17 November 2010

Call for paper ()


One crucial aspect of future IT applications in cars is the IT security of embedded applications. Whereas software safety is a relatively well established (if not necessarily well understood) field, the protection of automotive IT systems against manipulation has only very recently started to emerge. Embedded security will be an enabling technology for the majority of car IT sytems such as telematics, infotainment, secure software download, and ad hoc networks.

escar, now in its 8th year, has established itself as the premier forum for information, discussion and exchange of ideas in this emerging  field. As in previous years, the program will include invited talks and submitted papers in the following areas:

  • IT security for driver assistance, telematics, and new business models

  • IT security for other transport systems (rail, aerospace, etc.)

  • Mobile and secure communication platforms

  • Security issues in road pricing, and security for alternative transportation systems (e.g., e-cars)

  • Security of vehicular communications

  • Identity theft, privacy and data protection issues in vehicular settings

  • Digital rights management and trusted computing in vehicles (e.g. for navigation, entertainment, ...)

  • Secure software downloads, and security for event data recorders (EDR) and tachographs

  • Car theft prevention by electronic means

The deadline for paper submission is 27 June 2010 (24:00 CET).
