Mitigation of Cybersecurity Vulnerabilities for Traffic Control Infrastructure

The objectives and associated tasks of the project are as follows: (1) develop specifications for traffic controllers to mitigate the vulnerabilities found in BDV25-977-70 and recommend minimum requirements of cybersecurity for traffic signal controllers; (2) develop a testing procedure and guidelines for specification testing; (3) provide support in cybersecurity testing of traffic controllers and establish the procedure for testing; (4) support Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) in responsible disclosure with traffic controller manufacturers so that the vulnerabilities can be disclosed and a realistic timeline for mitigation can be implemented; and (5) assess other devices used in traffic management (e.g., traffic controllers, MMUs/CMU, and traffic cameras).
