Precise Positioning for Connected and Automated Mobility Services

4 April 2022 12:00 CE

Enhanced precise positioning is a key feature to enable advanced CCAM services where lane accuracy is needed to provide an accurate situational awareness to the vehicles. Although a combination of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), Inertial Navigation Systems (INS) and vehicle sensors can satisfy most of the minimum requirements of different use cases, in some locations where satellites cannot be easily tracked, like urban or rugged areas, it could lead to inaccuracies of several meters and significant latencies.

5GCroCo has analyzed three positioning solutions to enhance vehicle’s location, 5G NR side-link, 3GPP GPS Real Time Kinematic (GNSS-RTK) and Ultra-WideBand (UWB); following the terminology described in TS 38.305, these three technologies illustrate RAT-dependent, hybrid and RAT-independent approaches, respectively. This webinar introduces the main characteristics, benefits and challenges of these three technologies in CCAM scenarios, as described on Deliverable D3.2 on “Intermediate E2E, MEC & Positioning Architecture”. Moreover, it presents experimental results of the 3GPP GNSS-RTK and UWB solutions, which have been demonstrated in 5GCroCo within the context of the Anticipated Cooperative Collision Avoidance (ACCA) Use Case in a highway and an urban scenario. The evaluation of the obtained results shows that both technologies can provide centimeter-level accurate positioning.

Security Guideline for MQTT Protocol

6 September 2021 12:00 CE

MQTT stands for “Message Queuing Telemetry Transport”. This protocol was designed 1999 for machine-to-machine telemetry in low bandwidth environments for TCP/IP networks. MQTT started as a proprietary protocol, it was released Royalty free in 2010 and became OASIS standard in 2014. MQTT was fast becoming one of the main protocols of IOT (internet of things) deployments. MQTT v3.1.1 is in Common Use, the new version MQTT v5 has been approved in Jan 2018 and is currently in Limit use. This web-seminar gives an overview of security threats and common vulnerability patterns of the MQTT v3.1.1 protocol if you don’t use today’s state-of-the-art security features of TCP/IP. The web-seminar shows methods to put security into MQTT v3.1.1 protocol and pinpoints the advantages and disadvantages for each case that will be discussed.

5GCroCo: Docker Security Guidelines

10 & 17 May 2021 12:00 CE

Abstract:

Container technologies have seen a rise in popularity in recent years. They provide a convenient way of packaging applications for deployment in production and offer lightweight alternatives to virtual machines (VMs). However, containers do not offer the same security benefits as VMs and - from a security perspective - many things can be done wrong when developing and running containerized workloads.

This web-seminar gives an overview of security threats and common vulnerability patterns related to designing, developing, and deploying docker containers. The focus are the most common docker vulnerability patterns, as seen "in the wild" from the experience of security assessments and based on security best practices. Insecure practices, potential misconfigurations and common pitfalls related to the building of docker images, containers at runtime, and the host environment are covered. For every issue, secure solutions, available protection mechanisms, as well as examples are provided.

The target audience of this web-seminar are developers with a basic understanding of docker who want and need to ensure they build and run containerized workloads in a secure manner. Only issues to docker and docker-compose are covered. More complex container orchestration tools, such as Kubernetes or OpenShift, are out of scope. As preparation we suggest reading Section 4.5.3 of 5GCroCo Deliverable D3.2

Note: This web-seminar is split into two parts. The second part continues where the first part leaves off.

5GCroCo: Cross-border / -MNO Handover Architecture and Trial Results

19 April 2021 12:00 CE

Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility (CCAM) will enrich assisted and automated driving by exchange of information among vehicles (V2V), as well as between vehicles and the network, commonly also called ”cloud” or ”backend”, (V2N). CCAM services should not be interrupted when crossing a country border and with that also switching between different Mobile Network Operators (MNOs).

This web-seminar will present the 3GPP-complient network architecture applied in the 5GCroCo project to achieve cross-border / MNO (Inter-PLMN) handover. Furthermore, first results and experience from trials will be presented and discussed.

5GCroCo: Challenges and Solutions for V2X Interoperability

12 April 2021 12:00 CE

Section 3.3.5 of the recently published 5GCroCo Deliverable D3.1 on "Final Application Architecture" explains the challenges and solutions for interoperability around the Anticipated Cooperative Collision Avoidance (ACCA) use case. This use case serves as example to uncover challenges if information, in this case hazard warnings, must be shared between different automotive OEMs and between OEMs and different Road Traffic Authorities (RTAs).

“Standardization” is often considered necessary in this context. This presentation introduces the current and near-future eco-system of information sharing for connected vehicles. It describes how different solutions, beyond everyone just following the same standard, can be used to achieve service-level interoperability among different ITS systems and stakeholders. For each solution, involved stakeholders are identified and their respective effort to establish and maintain (evolve / upgrade) the interoperability solution.
