WP6 – Risk Analysis and Mitigation Strategies

 Coordinated by
RES (M01-M16)


This work package researches and develops a methodology for continuous risk assessment process on the ICT supply chain, such that the system is continuously analyzed for potential weaknesses, and corresponding mitigation strategies can be enacted using BIECO solutions.

This WP has the following concrete objectives:

  1. To identify in an automated fashion main threats, including those that could also derive in a physical hazard in a cyber-physical system.
  2. To compute the severity of the consequences of threats and hazards.
  3. To make the link between systems’ internal security causes and their possible safety hazards explicit, e.g. in failure logic models such as Component Fault Trees.
  4. To define mitigation strategies.
  5. Out of both design time risk assessment models and mitigation strategies, runtime risk management models shall be synthesized systematically that are suitable to support runtime resilience mechanisms defined in WP4.
  6. Design and develop security, privacy and accountability measures for all the entities involved in the supply chain.

Envisioned mitigations range from process-based to architecture-based as well as related to the introduction of new patches and error detectors. The WP will ultimately produce a methodology and supporting tools for the systematic and automated i) analysis of risks, and ii) identification of mitigations that shall be equipped in the BIECO framework.

Remote Updating – Upgrading of Vehicle Firmware

Securing remote and in-vehicle communications against cyber-attacks, possibly performed with quantum computers in the near future, is a major goal in the automotive sector. For such a purpose I-FEV focused on a thorough study and an architecture and protocol design to develop and implement a Service Over the Air (SOtA )system, starting from Electronic Control Unit (ECU) firmware update on its electric vehicles from remote.
