Securing Intelligent Transportation Systems against Spoofing Attacks

This project develops tools for building secure-by-design intelligent transportation systems (ITSs). The research team will develop proactive and reactive mechanisms that protect ITS from cyber attacks and recover ITS from security failures. In particular, the team focus on a class of cyber attacks that manipulate the dynamic routing via modifying sensing/ actuating, which is called spoofing. The team will consider the allocation of proactive security resources such as redundant communication channels and diagnosis capabilities, and reactive strategies such as secure dynamic routing. The team considers a Markovian queuing network model with dynamic routing that is applicable to a variety of ITSs and design defending strategies based on a security game model. The team will utilize their expertise in queuing theory and game theory to derive a theoretical foundation for secure-by-design ITS. The team will also apply the proposed approach to two typical ITS scenarios: app-based routing and signal-free intersections.
