About the Project

Nowadays, the trend towards the connectivity of devices, systems, infrastructure, and vehicles being part of the infrastructure, is exponentially growing. Vehicles wirelessly exchange data with servers, infrastructure, pedestrians, and other vehicles. Further, the vehicles are becoming more automated and targeting autonomous functionality, sensing the surrounding environment and navigating through cities without human input. As a result, Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) introduce new enablers in mobility and transport. However, this comes with the cost of a new set of threats pertaining to higher risks of cyber-attacks. A cyber-attack in CAV can yield high recall costs and even jeopardize human safety. Therefore, the need for cyber-protection of CAVs arises its importance and need for appropriate tools.

nIoVe project is a 36 months European project co-founded by the European Union's Horizon 2020. The project brings together European excellence to build innovative cyber-security of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) within the Internet-of-Vehicles (IoV) ecosystem to support automotive manufacturers and transport providers. The Consortium of the project is highly interdisciplinary and trans-national. It was formed of twelve experienced and committed partners, including five industrial partners, five R&D, and academia partners, and one public transportation authority. The Consortium embodies six European states (Greece, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Sweden, and Spain) and Israel, representing the end-user and market needs in Europe and globally.

The project works towards more robust, resilient, and effective cybersecurity solutions that can be effortlessly tailored to each organization's evolving needs and adapt to the changing cyber-threat landscape.

IMPACT 1: Enhanced protection against novel advanced threats.

IMPACT 2: Advanced technologies and services to manage complex cyber-attacks and to reduce the impact of breaches.

IMPACT 3: The technological and operational enablers of co-operation in response and recovery will contribute to the Computer Emergency Response Team (CSIRT) Network across the EU, which implies one of the key targets of the NIS Directive.

IMPACT 4: Robust, transversal, and scalable ICT Building blocks of the project infrastructures resilient to cyber-attacks that can underpin relevant domain-specific ICT systems, providing sustainable cybersecurity, digital privacy, and accountability.
