ETSI 1st C-V2X Plugtest participants

TeskaLabs at the ETSI 1st C-V2X Plugtest

ETSI, in partnership with 5GAA, has organized the 1st C-V2X Plugtests interoperability events for C-V2X using mobile communication technology for direct communication between vehicles, from vehicle to pedestrian and from vehicle to infrastructure. This event was hosted by DEKRA, from 02 to 06 December in Malaga, Spain.

After a succesfull ETSI C-ITS Security plugtest at November 2019, TeskaLabs participated at this plugtest to validate its security technologies for C-V2X.

Cellular V2X (aka C-V2X) is a new 3GPP standard to achieve the requirements of vehicle-to-anything (V2X) communication over the cellular network. C-V2X is an alternative to ITS-G5 (based on 802.11p aka "Wifi"), the ETSI/IEEE specified standard for V2V and other forms of V2X communications. C-V2X uses 4G LTE or 5G mobile cellular connectivity to send and receive messages from a vehicle to other vehicles, pedestrians or to fixed objects such as traffic lights in its surroundings.

The next C-V2X Plugtests event is planned for H2 2020.

PKI for C-V2X

TeskaLabs participated on the plugtest with its cyber security technology SeaCat PKI, supporting our partner company Crypta Labs. SeaCat PKI for C-V2X conforms to ESTI standards TS 103 097 v1.3.1 and ETSI TS 102 941 v1.3.1, which provides functions of the central infrastructure (or PKI) such as Root Certification Authority, Enrolment Authority and Authorization Authority. We also provide the reference implementation of the C-ITS Security for onboard units (OBU), road-side units (RSU) and other ITS-S such as back office applications.

C-ITS PKI as a Service

In many respects, todays’s motor vehicles function as connected devices. And with this in consideration, joint EU initiatives have broadened the impact of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systéms (C-ITS) to include more expanded connections, including road infrastructure. This enhanced connectivity is expected to show significant improvements to road safety and traffic efficiency.
