 escar USA 2020 Special Issue publication

We had to cancel the escar USA 2020 conference due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We received many submissions of great value to the automotive cybersecurity community before we had to make the decision to cancel the escar USA 2020 workshop, and therefore we decided to execute the review process and publish selected papers in an escar USA 2020 Special Issue publication. The review process has been finished, and we selected 8 papers for publication. We plan to publish those 8 papers by mid-July in SAE’s International Journal of Transportation Cybersecurity and Privacy.

The 8 accepted papers are:

  • Liron Kaneti, Steffen Sanwald, Marc Stöttinger and Martin Böhner. Secure Boot Revisited: Challenges for Secure Implementations in the Automotive Domain
