Cybersecurity for the Advanced Transportation Controller Standards Family

The Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) Advanced Transportation Controller (ATC) family of standards includes interoperable requirements for ATCs, the ATC Application Programming Interface (API) and the ATC (formerly ITS) Cabinet. These standards provide physical dimensions, environmental/electrical requirements, as well as the ports and protocols supported by these devices, however the security requirements associated with these devices have not been fully addressed to date. As these devices are critical interfaces to Connected Vehicle communications as well as attack surfaces for the ITS infrastructure, standardized security requirements and guidance is necessary to ensure future secure ITS infrastructure systems. This effort will develop new security requirements for all of the standards in the ATC family via a holistic security approach that covers all of the critical attack surfaces.
