NIST is Calling for Participants for a Community of Interest Focusing on Automotive Cybersecurity

The automotive industry is facing significant challenges from
increased cybersecurity risk and adoption of AI and opportunities from rapid
technological innovations. NIST is setting up this community of interest (COI)
to allow the industry to discuss, comment, and provide input on the work that
NIST is doing which will affect the automotive industry. Topics can include:

  • Cryptography
    • Cryptographic agility
    • Deprecation challenges
  • Supply chain
    • Code integrity and
    • Management of hardware,
      firmware, and software composition and inventory to respond to
      cybersecurity vulnerabilities
    • Integrity of development,
      integration, build, and distribution environments
  • Artificial intelligence (AI)
    cybersecurity risk management in automated vehicles (AVs)
    • Develop measurement approaches
      for establishing safety and security criteria for AI in AV
      • Identify and quantify risks
        for AI algorithms used in AVs
      • Adversarial attacks and
        mitigations testing and evaluation

The COI is open and will provide a way for NIST to obtain comments
and feedback from the automotive industry. For example, NIST may ask the COI to
comment on publications; assist in developing use cases; and provide insight
into cybersecurity challenges of innovative technologies.

Industry, government and academics are all welcome to join.
